Why I Am Wearing Orange on June 2

By Maddie Newman, NFTY Texas Oklahoma Since living in Texas for the past twelve years, I’ve grown up with the concept of guns being in my friend’s houses, being used by my neighbor on his yearly hunting trip, and being on display in a decorative glass box. Until I was thirteen, I didn’t know what gun violence was. I was in my fifth summer at the URJ Greene Family Camp when my counselors were told about the deadly movie theatre shooting in Aurora, Colorado where twelve people were killed. I remember the shock on their faces and surprise we all […]

How Can We Redefine Leadership?

28 July 2014

NFTY is made up of over 7,000 Jewish teens from across North America. In each of the 19 regions, there is a wide range of teens who serve on their regional board. Each has something special to add to their position, and each recognizes their role as a leader. However, what about the other teens in our movement? Why shouldn't they have the opportunity to serve their region, too? These questions came up a lot during my time at the URJ Kutz Camp this summer, where I had the opportunity to learn from almost 80 passionate Regional and Temple Youth Group leaders in the Leadership Academy.

15 July 2014

Is your Facebook feed full of mixed facts and opinions on the situation in Israel and Gaza, and you’re not really sure what to think? Take a look at the last week’s Webinar and Q and A session discussing the situation:       A rocket is fired. You have 15 seconds to find shelter. This is the reality right now in Ashkelon, in Ashdod, in Be’er Sheva, Jerusalem, Hebron, Shaar HaNegev. This has been the reality for the last 8 days in Tel Aviv, in Modi’in, and in Gaza City. This is the reality for our brothers and sisters in […]

“If You Had the Attention of the URJ President…”

10 July 2014

By Matt Mandel, NFTY-NAR New York City Membership Vice President 2014-2015 A few days ago I was going about a regular day during my first week at the Union for Reform Judaism’s Kutz Camp. It was time for chuggim, or electives, so I looked at the Expo board in the dining hall and at the top of the list was a very intriguing choice called: “If you had the attention of the URJ President…” I hurried over because, initially, I thought Rabbi Rick Jacobs was leading the chug. To my slight dismay, I only found a few camp participants and […]
