Until I was thirteen, I didn’t know what gun violence was. I was in my fifth summer at the URJ Greene Family Camp when my counselors were told about the deadly movie theatre shooting in Aurora, Colorado where twelve people were killed. I remember the shock on their faces and surprise we all […]

NFTY-STR: Ice Cubes and Rocks

10 September 2014

This past Wednesday, September 3, SchZFTY (Congregation Schaarai Zedek's temple youth group) hosted their first open house, a forum for our teens to simply hang out and get to know one another on a much more personal level. As decided by our youth advisor, Lindsey Morgan, and myself, at each open house of the 2014-2015 year, SchZFTYites will have the unique opportunity to participate in a 30 to 45 minute program addressing a social action theme correlating to either NFTY-STR SAVP (Social Action Vice President) Noah Baker's Monthly Mitzvah Theme, or a congregation-wide tzedakah theme. As SchZFTY's SAVP, one of my responsibilities is to collaborate with Lindsey and our programming team to write and conduct these programs.
