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-CAR: Danielle Wright Talks Torah

02 June 2014

The following is a selection from a D'var Torah given by Danielle Wright at NFTY-CAR Kolbo, May 3rd, 2014.

None the less, after pondering my original reaction to the Torah portion, I began to wonder about how I am looked at by G-D. Because I perceived this Torah portion to be a little ADHD, does that therefore make me ADHD? I also had an initial reaction to this portion being egocentric. Does this make me an egocentric person?I then wondered that if G-D is Holy and One, are WE, then, Holy and One?

The Makings of a Leader

27 May 2014

What does it mean to be on Regional Board? Most of us would probably say that to be on Regional Board is to be an exceptional leader and role model. But really, what does that mean? What does it mean to be a true youth leader?

A Movement To Remember

09 May 2014

by Aaron Heft, 2013-14 NFTY Membership and Communications Vice-President (@nftymcvp, www.facebook.com/nftymcvp) Ever since attending the Netzer Olami International Veida in Jerusalem this past January and learning about all of the wonderful things other sniffim in Netzer Olami are doing within their movements, I had been contemplating whether or not NFTY was truly a movement. Yes we’ve had some amazing ‘movement-moments’ in the past including a NFTY president speaking to a Senate Sub-Committee against the Vietnam War in 1971, being a part of the 200,000 person National March on Washington for Soviet Jewry in 1987 (one of the largest demonstrations in […]

Giving the Gift of NFTY-NAR: Opening Our Doors to More Jewish Teens

02 May 2014

When I boarded the bus to this past NFTY NAR Spring Kallah, I noticed a group of five or so new members chatting quietly towards the back of the bus. These freshman and sophomores already knew each other and decided to try out NFTY together. As I approached, their conversation fell silent.

NFTY-PAR: Realizing What a Freshmen Means in the Eyes of a NFTYite

29 April 2014

None of the freshmen who attended Spring Kallah had any idea what to expect. Seniors will be leaving PAR, and in the eyes of NFTY, freshmen become sophomores. After Spring it became apparent to me that the event is all about reflecting on what NFTY means to you and emphasizing generational leadership.
