NFTY-NAR: Humans of NFTY

Throughout the course of the weekend at NFTY-NAR’s Spring Kallah, we asked our high school seniors to share some of their thoughts around what it means to be a “Human of NFTY.” Below are three responses from Barak Stockler, Jen Gordon and Jared Fischer, who are members at Congregation Kol Ami in White Plains, NY.

NFTY-SAR: Never Forget These Years

How can you sum up all the feelings that you have about NFTY? I find that to be an impossible task. To put four years of experiences into a 90 second speech was something I knew I could not do. Each year, I would watch the seniors at Spring Kallah as they would give their final senior speeches, most of the time not being able to get their words out because they were crying so hard. Each year I thought “oh, I have so much time until I have to do this”.
