The Power of Generational Leadership

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.

Talking about Israel, at Passover and Year-Round

11 April 2014

Yesterday evening, I was invited by Temple Sinai of Washington, D.C. to speak to their seventh grade students about my connection and relationship to Israel as a part of their culminating class on their Israel unit.
