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 […]

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.

This has been the reality for the last 8 days in Tel Aviv, in Modi’in, and in Gaza City. This is the reality for our brothers and sisters in […]

“If You Had the Attention of the URJ President…”

10 July 2014

By Matt Mandel, NFTY-NAR New York City Membership Vice President 2014-2015 A few days ago I was going about a regular day during my first week at the Union for Reform Judaism’s Kutz Camp. It was time for chuggim, or electives, so I looked at the Expo board in the dining hall and at the top of the list was a very intriguing choice called: “If you had the attention of the URJ President…” I hurried over because, initially, I thought Rabbi Rick Jacobs was leading the chug. To my slight dismay, I only found a few camp participants and […]
