New Opportunity for Teens: Israel Engagement Committee

The 2016 race for the United States Presidency has been unlike any other in recent memory. From reproductive rights to minimum wage to the Keystone Pipeline, candidates are taking divisive stances on a wide range of topics. As seen through NFTY's Voice Your Choice Campaign, it is essential for us to be engaged and informed on the issues that are important to ourselves and our Jewish communities. One such issue that directly impacts the American Jewish population is the relationship between Israel and the United States.

As you may have seen in your American Government textbooks, democracy is a “government by the people, both directly or indirectly, with free and frequent elections.” Therefore, democracies only function when the citizens of democratic nations become educated and involved in their political processes. Political involvement is typically thought of as casting a ballot at the polls, but in actuality, voting is only the tip of the iceberg.
