Top 5 Ways to Celebrate the High Holy Days as a Teenager

Long services, packed synagogues and fasting – let’s be honest, the High Holy days can seem unfamiliar and difficult to connect with, especially if you are accustomed to interactive and exciting NFTY services. Here are a few tips to make the High Holy Days a little less foreign, and maybe even inspirational.

Why NFTY is My Land of Oz

In The Wizard of Oz, Dorothy’s world in Kansas begins in black and white; the minute she steps foot in Munchkin lands, her world turns to color. She takes it in for a moment and she whispers to Toto, “We must be over the rainbow!” When I attended my first NFTY North American event, NFTY Convention 2015 in Atlanta, GA, the color of my world was beautifully enhanced. I traveled over the rainbow.

NFTY-President: What Can Legislation Do For Us?

04 September 2014

NFTY-PAR: Starting From the Bottom

03 September 2014

Just over a week ago NFTY-PAR’s Summer Leadership Kallah, affectionately called SLK (slick), occurred at URJ Camp Harlam. The PAR Board was extremely excited for the four-day event centered around building our future leaders in PAR.
