NFTY-TOR: Fall-ish Conclave Shmooze! Countdown to NFTY Convention 2015: How NFTY Inspired My Daughter
 

Tzedek, Tzedek Tirdof

My name is Ethan Stone, I am the President of NFTY Missouri Valley, and while I write to represent NFTY Missouri Valley, the views expressed here are my own.

I had the pleasure of hearing the familiar voices of NFTY Staff and special guests Rabbi Randy Fleisher, a rabbi from Central Reform Congregation in Greater St. Louis; and Zoey Fleisher, Rabbi Fleisher’s daughter, co-President of Central Reform Congregation’s youth group CRFTY, and a good friend of mine. Topics that were discussed included the events in Ferguson and Staten Island and the worldwide repercussions of those events, the meaning of privilege and the applications of that knowledge in our daily lives, and different forms of racism.

27 January 2014

Where do we find Moses and Jethro in our greater surroundings? I believe we find Moses in underserved and underprivileged communities. I think we find Moses in vulnerable people, whether that is due to abuse, homelessness, poverty, mental illness you name it -- people who have been dealt an extremely difficult hand, with very vague instructions.
