Thank You for Being My Brother’s Keeper

The following is a transcript of a speech delivered during Saturday morning services by Zak Kadish, NFTY Ohio Valley Programming Vice President, at NFTY Mechina last week. 356 days ago, the lives of my brother Ethan Kadish, my family, and myself were changed forever by a freak weather incident, a bolt out of the blue. When my brother was struck by lightning, our entire world was shattered, replaced by an impermeable darkness and fear for the future.

Respect and Learning Central to Understanding Challenges in Israel

As we discuss our perspectives on this difficult topic, it is important that we remember the Talmudic lesson of Eruvin 13b. In response to a debate between the school of Hillel and that of Shamai, two great Rabbinic leaders, we are reminded that “elu v’elu divrei elohim chayim — These and these are the words of the Living God.”

NFTY-PAR: Building Up BESTY

NFTY-CAR: Danielle Wright Talks Torah

02 June 2014

The following is a selection from a D'var Torah given by Danielle Wright at NFTY-CAR Kolbo, May 3rd, 2014. As I completed my thought process, I reflected on my NFTY experience.I remember one particular topic. B'tzelem Elohim. In the image of G-D. (It also happens to be my favorite Dan Nichols song!) None the less, after pondering my original reaction to the Torah portion, I began to wonder about how I am looked at by G-D. Because I perceived this Torah portion to be a little ADHD, does that therefore make me ADHD? I also had an initial reaction to this portion being egocentric.

A Movement To Remember

09 May 2014

by Aaron Heft, 2013-14 NFTY Membership and Communications Vice-President (@nftymcvp, www.facebook.com/nftymcvp) Ever since attending the Netzer Olami International Veida in Jerusalem this past January and learning about all of the wonderful things other sniffim in Netzer Olami are doing within their movements, I had been contemplating whether or not NFTY was truly a movement. Yes we’ve had some amazing ‘movement-moments’ in the past including a NFTY president speaking to a Senate Sub-Committee against the Vietnam War in 1971, being a part of the 200,000 person National March on Washington for Soviet Jewry in 1987 (one of the largest demonstrations in […]
