5 Things I Saw In Israel During Elections

This past week I took an amazing family trip to Israel. We started in the north and travelled around the country for about 9 days. Our trip happened to fall on Israel’s federal elections. It was an interesting time to be in Israel, and these are a few things my family and I experienced while we were there.

NFTY-CWR: Special Report – NFTY Convention

The first thought that most people have when they hear NFTY Convention is “What is that?” NFTY is the North American Federation of Temple Youth. In February, NFTY held its bi- annual convention in Atlanta, Georgia with 1,000 teens and 300 staff members, or youth professionals, in attendance. The theme “Myself, My Community and My World” was the perfect definition of everything that we were about to explore in our journey throughout the weekend.

NFTY SOCAL D’var Torah: Knowing Whom We Stand Before

“Leadership.” This word, the theme of our weekend together, has been tossed around a lot lately. But more often than not, we talk about leadership as some big, vague concept and rarely actually talk about the meaning behind it. One of my favorite Jewish teachings talks a little bit about the meaning of leadership:

NFTY-NEL: Pushing Boundaries to Promote Gender Equality

09 March 2015

When I joined NFTY NEL there was a huge amount of weight put on equality and acceptance. I noticed how welcoming everyone was, no matter your sexual orientation, or your sexual preference.

NFTY-GER: After NFTY Convention, GER Teens Debrief with In-flight Interviews

27 February 2015

At the end of any NFTY event, especially on the ride home, NFTY-GER teens are always torn between being super excited after a great few days with their friends, and being completely exhausted from non-stop action and a severe lack of sleep. After NFTY Convention, these feelings are exponentially amplified. As it turns out, even in our state of exhaustion, the plane ride home from NFTY Convention is a great time to get candid, instant feedback from the teens, and even youth professionals. As many NFTY-GER teens and advisors shared a flight home from Atlanta, I took the opportunity to conduct a few “NFTY-GER In-Flight Interviews.”

The Power of Generational Leadership

26 February 2015

At NFTY Convention 2015 in Atlanta a couple of weekends ago, I watched with many past NFTY Board members as the 2015-2016 NFTY Board-Elect took the stage for the first time. Suddenly, as we began to sing Josh Nelson’s version of L’dor V’dor, a wave of nostalgia swelled within me and I finally understood the impact of generational leadership – it just happened two years after my time on NFTY Board.
