June 3 is Worldwide Unity Day: Promoting the Jewish People as One

June 12, 2014 is remembered to many as the day that three Israeli boys, Gilad Shaar, Naftali Fraenkel, and Eyal Yifrach, were kidnapped from a bus stop in Gush Etzion. It was a grim day, one that would prove to be a catalyst for the violent events that would occur later in the summer, culminating in what became known as the 50-Day War. As horrible as that day might have been, for me, it was also the day I stepped off a plane, boarded a bus, and tested my feet in the water of the Mediterranean Ocean as I watched my first Israeli sunrise from a beach near Tel Aviv.

There are many measures we can take towards raising awareness to gun violence prevention, but we need your help to make it happen.

“If we teach today’s students as we taught yesterday’s, we rob them of tomorrow.” This wise and intuitive statement was spoken by none other than one of the fathers of education, John Dewey. We are all educators. Whether you spend the lion’s share of your time planning and executing traditional education programs, youth group programs, or simply spending time with your families, we are all constantly teaching each other. As Jewish Educators, we believe that we should lead by example in every facet of our lives. This resonated with me when I was asked to participate this year in a joint venture offered by NFTY-PAR and Camp Harlam.

04 December 2013

The day Sara returned home from Women of the Wall Delegation trip, one of her friends asked how the trip was. Tears came to her eyes and “I don’t know” was the only thing she could get myself to say. There’s no way that the trip could be summed up in a couple words, let alone a couple sentences...
