NFTY-GER: After NFTY Convention, GER Teens Debrief with In-flight Interviews

At the end of any NFTY event, especially on the ride home, NFTY-GER teens are always torn between being super excited after a great few days with their friends, and being completely exhausted from non-stop action and a severe lack of sleep. After NFTY Convention, these feelings are exponentially amplified. As it turns out, even in our state of exhaustion, the plane ride home from NFTY Convention is a great time to get candid, instant feedback from the teens, and even youth professionals. As many NFTY-GER teens and advisors shared a flight home from Atlanta, I took the opportunity to conduct a few “NFTY-GER In-Flight Interviews.”

The Power of Generational Leadership

At NFTY Convention 2015 in Atlanta a couple of weekends ago, I watched with many past NFTY Board members as the 2015-2016 NFTY Board-Elect took the stage for the first time. Suddenly, as we began to sing Josh Nelson’s version of L’dor V’dor, a wave of nostalgia swelled within me and I finally understood the impact of generational leadership – it just happened two years after my time on NFTY Board.

NFTY-PAR: The Impact Youth Group Makes on a Congregation

05 February 2015

I would not be here were it not for NFTY. My guess is that, for many of us, that’s true. Our youth group has recently rebuilt itself through the hard efforts and commitment of several teens, like Jason Kramer, Ariel Friedlander, and Abby Kamen, and our talented advisor Avi Remetz. It would be easy to say, “my kids did that and are grown—it’s not for me.” or “my kids aren’t old enough yet”, but I would ask you to see our Youth Group as an essential aspect of the congregation, and to support it. For in doing so, you support our future as a congregation. L’dor Vador Nagid Godlecha: From generation to generation, we will tell of Your greatness. L’dor vador—in every generation, may WE protect this chain.
