NFTY-PAR: As Jews We Hold On To Hope

Hope can get complicated in our modern world. What are we supposed to hope for? Hope for peace in the Middle East? Hope to get an A on our math test? Hope that this D’var is over soon? I can’t answer those questions for you. We all hope for different things. What I do hope is that we can all strive to follow the Golden Rule “do not unto others as you would have them do unto you”. No matter what types of people we encounter, it is our purpose as Jews to hold onto hope for a better world and mutual understanding among all people.

NFTY-SO: Bringing the Holy Home – NFTY Southern’s Social Action Day

At NFTY Southern Institute, teens worked together to define what makes NFTY Southern a kehillah kedoshah, a holy community. To wrap up the weekend, we sent them with the charge of “bringing the holy home” – taking the holiness that they create in our NFTY regional community, and sharing it with the communities they are a part of. In our first Regional Social Action Day, they did just that. Thank you to Emma Figarsky, 10th grade from Little Rock, and Benny Meltzer, 11th grade from Baton Rouge, for sharing their insight and reflections on this experience!

NFTY-STR: Ice Cubes and Rocks

10 September 2014

This past Wednesday, September 3, SchZFTY (Congregation Schaarai Zedek's temple youth group) hosted their first open house, a forum for our teens to simply hang out and get to know one another on a much more personal level. As decided by our youth advisor, Lindsey Morgan, and myself, at each open house of the 2014-2015 year, SchZFTYites will have the unique opportunity to participate in a 30 to 45 minute program addressing a social action theme correlating to either NFTY-STR SAVP (Social Action Vice President) Noah Baker's Monthly Mitzvah Theme, or a congregation-wide tzedakah theme. As SchZFTY's SAVP, one of my responsibilities is to collaborate with Lindsey and our programming team to write and conduct these programs.

NFTY-PAR: United Donations

09 September 2014

NFTY brings thousands of Jewish teenagers from across the country together. People might ask the significance of NFTY and one might answer, “to form friendships” while another might say, “to learn about Judaism.” It took me a while to realize what made NFTY special to me as an individual.

NFTY-PAR: Operation Inclusion

05 September 2014

During Summer Leadership Kallah, participants were able to sign up for two sessions of board workshops. Workshops varied from teaching about how to turn something negative in your life to a poistive to evaluating what body language means to teaching the value and importance of clear communication. My workshop was about one of the three North American campaigns NFTY is focusing on in the upcoming year. These campaigns include discussing LGBTQIA rights, taking a stand on gun violence, and, NFTY’s guide to inclusion.
