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.

NFTY-MAR: New Experiences at NewGrounds

27 February 2013

By Sarah Woodside, NFTY-MAR Member and Social Action Vice President for RALFTY Hey NFTY-MAR! This past week I went to Convention. It was the most spectacular thing I’ve ever done with my life!
