Justice, Justice, You Shall Pursue

This past June, teen leaders from all across the United States and Canada came together for NFTY Mechina, NFTY’s first North American board meeting of the 2016-2017 year at URJ Kutz Camp. Together we prayed, learned, and grew as leaders. As a movement, we had the opportunity to take a stance on our beliefs and affirm our commitment to pursuing social justice.

NFTY – Fighting for Racial Justice

Throughout the past week, our country has been devastated by violence. Together, with the communities of Baton Rouge, Falcon Heights, and Dallas, we mourn the deaths of Alton Sterling, Philando Castile, and officers Brent Thompson, Patrick Zamarripa, Michael Krol, Lorne Ahrens, and Michael Smith. As we remember the lives that were lost, we also struggle to comprehend how we have allowed institutional and systemic racism to persist in our country. The tragic violence of the past week serves as a reminder that we must recommit ourselves to fighting for racial justice in the United States.

NFTY-SW: Not Your Typical Israel Trip

23 September 2014

Following graduation, my summer began and went on as normal, but I felt that something was missing. Throughout high school I became very involved in the North American Federation of Temple Youth (NFTY). I had the privilege of being a member of two Southwest regional boards, first as Communications Vice President, and then as President. As my time in NFTY ended, I felt like there was something more for me to do. I knew that I needed to find the next steps in my Jewish life.
