NFTY-PAR: United Donations

NFTY brings thousands of Jewish teenagers from across the country together. People might ask the significance of NFTY and one might answer, “to form friendships” while another might say, “to learn about Judaism.” It took me a while to realize what made NFTY special to me as an individual.

NFTY-GER: Israel from the Inside

28 August 2014

This summer I had the most incredible experiences of my life. I traveled the world, made lifelong friends, learned about the history of my people, and strengthened my faith in Judaism. I was able to experience Israel in a way that all Israelis spend their lives-- in a time of war.
