NFTY-PAR: Inserting Judaism

Judaism is what brings us together. It is the one thing all kids in NFTY-PAR have in common, no matter how religious one is or what synagogue they belong to. The interesting question that raises is, should Judaism be incorporated in our programs and activities and how? Or should it be just our shared characteristic?

NFTY-MVP: Coming to a Blog Near You

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.”

Throwback Thursday: PAR and NE

A Movement To Remember

09 May 2014

by Aaron Heft, 2013-14 NFTY Membership and Communications Vice-President (@nftymcvp, www.facebook.com/nftymcvp) Ever since attending the Netzer Olami International Veida in Jerusalem this past January and learning about all of the wonderful things other sniffim in Netzer Olami are doing within their movements, I had been contemplating whether or not NFTY was truly a movement. Yes we’ve had some amazing ‘movement-moments’ in the past including a NFTY president speaking to a Senate Sub-Committee against the Vietnam War in 1971, being a part of the 200,000 person National March on Washington for Soviet Jewry in 1987 (one of the largest demonstrations in […]

Giving the Gift of NFTY-NAR: Opening Our Doors to More Jewish Teens

02 May 2014

When I boarded the bus to this past NFTY NAR Spring Kallah, I noticed a group of five or so new members chatting quietly towards the back of the bus. These freshman and sophomores already knew each other and decided to try out NFTY together. As I approached, their conversation fell silent.

NFTY-PAR: Realizing What a Freshmen Means in the Eyes of a NFTYite

29 April 2014

None of the freshmen who attended Spring Kallah had any idea what to expect. Seniors will be leaving PAR, and in the eyes of NFTY, freshmen become sophomores. After Spring it became apparent to me that the event is all about reflecting on what NFTY means to you and emphasizing generational leadership.

NFTY-PAR: Being a Role Model is a Life Changing Experience

29 April 2014

Growing up in PAR, I wanted to become a role model for people younger than me just like the people older were for me. And I was always very nervous that I didn't leave that legacy that I wanted to within the region. But being engaged in PAR has helped me realize what a true role model is and means.

NFTY-PAR: My Final Event…Spring Kallah

23 April 2014

When I arrived at Elections, I greeted everyone and made sure everyone running was calm and relaxed. Honestly, I probably give my friends running more attention, but I made sure I wished all thirteen candidates good luck.
