NFTY Leaders Join Together at Veida Over President’s Day Weekend

By Aly Silverberg, NFTY Communications Vice President, and Taylor Gleeson, NFTY Social Action Vice President On February 12th-15th, teen leaders from across the the continent will gather at URJ Olin-Sang-Ruby Union Institute (OSRUI) in Oconomowoc, Wisconsin for NFTY’s biennial business meeting, Veida.

Instead of the Veida participants being solely NFTY regional board members, this is the […]

NFTY-PAR: Inserting Judaism

02 September 2014

Judaism is what brings us together. It is the one thing all kids in NFTY-PAR have in common, no matter how religious one is or what synagogue they belong to. The interesting question that raises is, should Judaism be incorporated in our programs and activities and how? Or should it be just our shared characteristic?

NFTY-MVP: Coming to a Blog Near You

02 September 2014

COMING SOON TO A BLOG NEAR YOU: MVP MONDAY!! I’ve come to realize that in NFTY, we often say we should “start with why,” a quote taken from Simon Sinek’s informational TedTalk (insert link here). All of the greatest organizations, all of the greatest leaders in the world don’t believe in first defining the problem. They believe that they must first understand why they do what they do. This holds true in NFTY, because we continually progress and change. I believe we should “start with why.”

NFTY-GER: Israel from the Inside

Heart for Tu Bav

The Balance of Tu B’Av

11 August 2014

  Hope Chernak is the Director of Youth and Informal Education at Temple Shaaray Tefila. Today is Tu B’Av.  Did you know that? Tu B’Av it’s one of those Jewish Holidays that not everyone is familiar with since it falls over the summer.  In the past, if Valentine’s Day fell on one of our youth group nights (TaSTY Lounge Night), I would use the opportunity to talk about Tu B’Av with our teens so they had a chance to learn about this summer holiday (even in the dead of the winter!).  I always found it interesting that this holiday comes […]
