NFTY-TOR: Fall-ish Conclave Shmooze! Countdown to NFTY Convention 2015: How NFTY Inspired My Daughter
 

Tzedek, Tzedek Tirdof

My name is Ethan Stone, I am the President of NFTY Missouri Valley, and while I write to represent NFTY Missouri Valley, the views expressed here are my own. I just now got off the “Unpacking Race Relations in the United States” webinar run by NFTY. I had the pleasure of hearing the familiar voices of NFTY Staff and special guests Rabbi Randy Fleisher, a rabbi from Central Reform Congregation in Greater St. Louis; and Zoey Fleisher, Rabbi Fleisher’s daughter, co-President of Central Reform Congregation’s youth group CRFTY, and a good friend of mine. Topics that were discussed included the events in Ferguson and Staten Island and the worldwide repercussions of those events, the meaning of privilege and the applications of that knowledge in our daily lives, and different forms of racism.

Nitzavim & Vayelech: A D’var Torah

31 August 2013

This week’s torah portion is actually a double portion – we read both Nitzavim and Vayelech. This is partly because all of the Torah portions don’t fit in a lunar year (there are 54 torah portions and only 50 weeks in a lunar calendar), and partly because these two portions flow into each other almost seamlessly as the Torah begins to wrap up.

#BlogElul 3 Bless: That One Time at The Mall

10 August 2013

A memory from high school: My friend Michelle and I were at the mall (yes, some New Jersey stereotypes are true). We were just finishing lunch and we looked up at each other and said, “Hey!
