NFTY Leaders Join Together at Veida Over President’s Day Weekend

By Aly Silverberg, NFTY Communications Vice President, and Taylor Gleeson, NFTY Social Action Vice President On February 12th-15th, teen leaders from across the the continent will gather at URJ Olin-Sang-Ruby Union Institute (OSRUI) in Oconomowoc, Wisconsin for NFTY’s biennial business meeting, Veida.
