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-PAR: Building Up BESTY

02 June 2014

When I first started as Director of Youth and Family Programs at Beth Emeth, there was no teen youth group program. It was my duty to change this, which is something I set as a personal goal. By the end of the school year I wanted to have a full teen board for our youth group BESTY.

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. As I completed my thought process, I reflected on my NFTY experience.I remember one particular topic. B'tzelem Elohim. In the image of G-D. (It also happens to be my favorite Dan Nichols song!) 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?

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 […]
