Justice, Justice, You Shall Pursue

This past June, teen leaders from all across the United States and Canada came together for NFTY Mechina, NFTY’s first North American board meeting of the 2016-2017 year at URJ Kutz Camp. Together we prayed, learned, and grew as leaders. As a movement, we had the opportunity to take a stance on our beliefs and affirm our commitment to pursuing social justice.

NFTY – Fighting for Racial Justice

Throughout the past week, our country has been devastated by violence. Together, with the communities of Baton Rouge, Falcon Heights, and Dallas, we mourn the deaths of Alton Sterling, Philando Castile, and officers Brent Thompson, Patrick Zamarripa, Michael Krol, Lorne Ahrens, and Michael Smith. As we remember the lives that were lost, we also struggle to comprehend how we have allowed institutional and systemic racism to persist in our country. The tragic violence of the past week serves as a reminder that we must recommit ourselves to fighting for racial justice in the United States.

Finding Uniqueness in My NFTY Region

I am a part of a NFTY, a North American movement which holds close to its core the pursuit of justice. In a very finite way, because of my NFTY region's geographic location in the south, we have a unique quest for justice. While all nineteen NFTY regions convened at URJ Kutz Camp to become a unified general board, the events of NFTY Mechina led me to think more deeply about what it means to be a member of NFTY who lives in the deep south.
