NFTY-PAR: My Introduction to ARZA

During NFTY-PAR’s social action oriented event, WINSTY, I learned something new that will now impact my Reform Jewish experience forever. Rabbi Jack Paskoff, the Rabbi at our host synagogue, introduced me to ARZA (ahr-tzah), the Association of Reform Zionists of America—who they are, what they do, and why it is important that we act now to support them. I had never known of this organization, and now I am not only aware of it, but I believe it is my duty to advocate for ARZA, because I believe in Reform Judaism and I believe in Israel being the homeland of all the Jewish people.

NFTY-PAR: Making a Difference with a Small Donation

Being a part of the NFTY-PAR community has affected me in many different ways. I have made life-long friendships, learned many Jewish values, including helping others that are less fortunate. However, the most important part to me is the social action component. Over the weekend of January 16th-18th, WINSTY was held at my temple, Congregation Shaarai Shomayim in Lancaster, PA. Over the weekend PARticipants from all across Pennsylvania, Southern New Jersey and Delaware, helped improve my community while having a fun time with friends. It was inspiring for me to see my fellow PARites learn and grow from projects they participated in throughout the Lancaster community.

NFTY-MV: “Do Not Stand Idly By”

At Winter Chavurah, Regional Board worked with Jonah Freelander, the Assistant Director of Mitzvah Corps, to run a program based on the teaching “Do not stand idly by while your neighbor’s blood is shed.” (Lev. 19:16). The purpose of the program was to allow participants to individually participate in many different station-based experiences derived from the modern social action movement, such as with transgender issues or #blacklivesmatter.

Something so inspiring about those 5 seconds was seeing your region being so engaged on a North American level. Though I said before, it was such an honor witnessing the knowledge and appreciation for social action and religion the emanates off your region, but there’s so much more to it. Your region is filled with passionate teen leaders, ready to take on all of NFTY.

MVP Monday: Walking Through the Door

10 November 2014

It can be hard to step away from a group of friends and welcome a new member in, but it’s something that is inspiring to everyone. At some point or another, we all felt like we were “lost” at a NFTY event, but we also all had that one person invite us to sit with them at dinner, be their partner for a mixer, or anything in between. After the participants are brought in by that one person, they will continue the same tradition in the future, which is something that is vital to the growth and success of NFTY.
