NFTY-TOR: Fall-ish Conclave Shmooze! Countdown to NFTY Convention 2015: How NFTY Inspired My Daughter
 

Tzedek, Tzedek Tirdof

My name is Ethan Stone, I am the President of NFTY Missouri Valley, and while I write to represent NFTY Missouri Valley, the views expressed here are my own. I just now got off the “Unpacking Race Relations in the United States” webinar run by NFTY. I had the pleasure of hearing the familiar voices of NFTY Staff and special guests Rabbi Randy Fleisher, a rabbi from Central Reform Congregation in Greater St. Louis; and Zoey Fleisher, Rabbi Fleisher’s daughter, co-President of Central Reform Congregation’s youth group CRFTY, and a good friend of mine. Topics that were discussed included the events in Ferguson and Staten Island and the worldwide repercussions of those events, the meaning of privilege and the applications of that knowledge in our daily lives, and different forms of racism.

Countdown to NFTY Convention 2015: How NFTY Inspired My Daughter

As every parent knows, when your child’s heart is bursting for joy, yours is, too. When your child’s heart is bursting for joy in anticipation before an event occurs, you’ve scored a gold mine. We’re at the “gold mine” level right now, as our daughter Shelby counts down to the upcoming NFTY Convention 2015 in Atlanta, Georgia! As I write this, the convention is just under four months away.

NFTY-GER: But Where is “Forth”?

20 November 2014

I have no doubt there are pieces of God within each of us that enable us to be kings in our own right. We have strengths and weaknesses beyond our knowledge and the only way to tap into these or overcome them is to recognize our own inherent power, inherited from generations of men and women who too have gone forth and have been good, have been great, but above all, have been Jews.

MVP Monday: The NFTY Experience

17 November 2014

I am so grateful that I was given the opportunity to find out about NFTY my freshman year. As a past MVP, and current Central Recruitment VP, it is so important to realize that everyone comes to NFTY for different reasons. Yet, people stay because of those people who reach out and go the extra mile to befriend a new member.

NFTY-MVP: NFTY-TOR Visit

14 November 2014

Something so inspiring about those 5 seconds was seeing your region being so engaged on a North American level. Though I said before, it was such an honor witnessing the knowledge and appreciation for social action and religion the emanates off your region, but there’s so much more to it. Your region is filled with passionate teen leaders, ready to take on all of NFTY.

MVP Monday: Walking Through the Door

10 November 2014

It can be hard to step away from a group of friends and welcome a new member in, but it’s something that is inspiring to everyone. At some point or another, we all felt like we were “lost” at a NFTY event, but we also all had that one person invite us to sit with them at dinner, be their partner for a mixer, or anything in between. After the participants are brought in by that one person, they will continue the same tradition in the future, which is something that is vital to the growth and success of NFTY.
