NFTY-SAR: To Inclusion and Beyond!

21 January 2015

This year, one of NFTY’s Social Action themes is inclusion. NFTY’s policies and outlook are morphing in an effort to accommodate, accept, and involve every Jewish teen in NFTY, as well as promoting inclusion beyond NFTY. With Benjamin eager to attend, NFTY-SAR welcomed Benjamin into our Fall Kallah in November. Benjamin’s parents had no idea that this year’s Social Action would hit so close to home. They shared their excitement and gratitude NFTY and the incredible strides we’ve taken, take, and hope to take.

Netzer Veida: Investing in the Issue

19 January 2015

Like many Jewish teens, I was raised to love Israel. Dayschool education, Sunday school, URJ camps – all were components of my identity as a Reform Zionist Jew, and all taught me the ties, both emotional and historical, that bound me to Eretz Israel.

Netzer Veida: One Community, One Family

18 January 2015

The world shrunk this weekend. Three days ago, France was millions of miles away, Australia was on a different planet, and Israel was light years away. Today, I have 14 new countries in my backyard.

L’Taken: Justice for All

16 January 2015

Everyday I go to school and say the Pledge of Allegiance. Every time I say it the last 3 words stick out to me the most. Those three words are “justice for all”. How is it justice for all when people with disabilities still lag behind in the National Average for having a complete education? Are they lacking in their educations because they actually cannot learn or because they are placed in schools where the teachers are not willing to teach the students the way they need to be taught. How is it justice when 29.2% of the disabled people live in poverty because of their lack of education? How is it justice when the people with disabilities are discriminated against for how they look and work to the point where they are often ignored as potential employees?
