NFTY-GER: In-flight Interviews

At the end of any NFTY event, especially on the ride home, NFTY-GER teens are always torn between being super excited after a great few days with their friends, and being completely exhausted from non-stop action and a severe lack of sleep. After NFTY Convention, these feelings are exponentially amplified. As it turns out, even in our state of exhaustion, the plane ride home from NFTY Convention is a great time to get candid, instant feedback from the teens, and even youth professionals. As many NFTY-GER teens and advisors shared a flight home from Atlanta, I took the opportunity to conduct a few “NFTY-GER In-Flight Interviews.”

Why Staying in Youth Group Makes the Teen Years Go a Little Easier

04 October 2013

I know in my heart of hearts that these teens are future leaders of the Jewish community and perhaps starting with statement like this will not garner the additional participants that I would like to add to all types of Youth engagement.

24 September 2013

What makes NFTY the place people can be themselves? It is not always the programs or the bunk bonding you have at night but rather the unintentional moments people have throughout the event.

NFTY-SW: Showing Our True Colors
