MVP Monday: Get SMART!

Every good youth group event started with a goal. Whether this goal was numerical or experiential, it was a goal nonetheless. Throughout today’s post, you will learn my personal favorite way of goal setting and how to put a plan into action. Something I learned during my year as TYG MVP was how to create a “SMART Goal”. My TYG Advisor really believed how important it was to have defined goals, rather than just a goal statement. At our board retreat, he showed us this way to format goal setting so that it was clearer to understand and detailed enough […]

MVP Monday #6: TYG Starter Guide Month 5

Finally, the end to a long but rewarding process: the fifth month to creating your working TYG. During this month, you’ll find that it’s important to begin adding more educational aspects to your programs, and to make sure that two people co-chair the event planning process.

NFTY-RCVP: A Reflection and a Thank-You to NFTY Northeast

The event was wonderful. The board did a great job, I loved being able to meet the participants, whether it was one new songleader from a recently disengaged youth group, AISH, the two boys from Concord, NH, or the well-known Presidents of larger TYGs. NFTY Northeast’s LTI was a few hours packed with enough kavannah, neshama, and ahava to last months.

NFTY-MVP: Coming to a Blog Near You

02 September 2014

COMING SOON TO A BLOG NEAR YOU: MVP MONDAY!! I’ve come to realize that in NFTY, we often say we should “start with why,” a quote taken from Simon Sinek’s informational TedTalk (insert link here). All of the greatest organizations, all of the greatest leaders in the world don’t believe in first defining the problem. They believe that they must first understand why they do what they do. This holds true in NFTY, because we continually progress and change. I believe we should “start with why.”

NFTY-GER: Israel from the Inside

28 August 2014

This summer I had the most incredible experiences of my life. I traveled the world, made lifelong friends, learned about the history of my people, and strengthened my faith in Judaism. I was able to experience Israel in a way that all Israelis spend their lives-- in a time of war.

Heart for Tu Bav

The Balance of Tu B’Av

11 August 2014

  Hope Chernak is the Director of Youth and Informal Education at Temple Shaaray Tefila. Today is Tu B’Av.  Did you know that? Tu B’Av it’s one of those Jewish Holidays that not everyone is familiar with since it falls over the summer.  In the past, if Valentine’s Day fell on one of our youth group nights (TaSTY Lounge Night), I would use the opportunity to talk about Tu B’Av with our teens so they had a chance to learn about this summer holiday (even in the dead of the winter!).  I always found it interesting that this holiday comes […]

How Can We Redefine Leadership?

28 July 2014

NFTY is made up of over 7,000 Jewish teens from across North America. In each of the 19 regions, there is a wide range of teens who serve on their regional board. Each has something special to add to their position, and each recognizes their role as a leader. However, what about the other teens in our movement? Why shouldn't they have the opportunity to serve their region, too? These questions came up a lot during my time at the URJ Kutz Camp this summer, where I had the opportunity to learn from almost 80 passionate Regional and Temple Youth Group leaders in the Leadership Academy.
