MVP Monday: Get SMART!

Every good youth group event started with a goal. Whether this goal was numerical or experiential, it was a goal nonetheless. Throughout today’s post, you will learn my personal favorite way of goal setting and how to put a plan into action. Something I learned during my year as TYG MVP was how to create a “SMART Goal”. My TYG Advisor really believed how important it was to have defined goals, rather than just a goal statement. At our board retreat, he showed us this way to format goal setting so that it was clearer to understand and detailed enough […]

MVP Monday #6: TYG Starter Guide Month 5

Finally, the end to a long but rewarding process: the fifth month to creating your working TYG. During this month, you’ll find that it’s important to begin adding more educational aspects to your programs, and to make sure that two people co-chair the event planning process.

NFTY-RCVP: A Reflection and a Thank-You to NFTY Northeast

The event was wonderful. The board did a great job, I loved being able to meet the participants, whether it was one new songleader from a recently disengaged youth group, AISH, the two boys from Concord, NH, or the well-known Presidents of larger TYGs. NFTY Northeast’s LTI was a few hours packed with enough kavannah, neshama, and ahava to last months.

NFTY-STR: Ice Cubes and Rocks

10 September 2014

This past Wednesday, September 3, SchZFTY (Congregation Schaarai Zedek's temple youth group) hosted their first open house, a forum for our teens to simply hang out and get to know one another on a much more personal level. As decided by our youth advisor, Lindsey Morgan, and myself, at each open house of the 2014-2015 year, SchZFTYites will have the unique opportunity to participate in a 30 to 45 minute program addressing a social action theme correlating to either NFTY-STR SAVP (Social Action Vice President) Noah Baker's Monthly Mitzvah Theme, or a congregation-wide tzedakah theme. As SchZFTY's SAVP, one of my responsibilities is to collaborate with Lindsey and our programming team to write and conduct these programs.

NFTY-PAR: United Donations

09 September 2014

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.
