NFTY-GER: In-flight Interviews

At the end of any NFTY event, especially on the ride home, NFTY-GER teens are always torn between being super excited after a great few days with their friends, and being completely exhausted from non-stop action and a severe lack of sleep. After NFTY Convention, these feelings are exponentially amplified. As it turns out, even in our state of exhaustion, the plane ride home from NFTY Convention is a great time to get candid, instant feedback from the teens, and even youth professionals. As many NFTY-GER teens and advisors shared a flight home from Atlanta, I took the opportunity to conduct a few “NFTY-GER In-Flight Interviews.”

The Power of Generational Leadership

At NFTY Convention 2015 in Atlanta a couple of weekends ago, I watched with many past NFTY Board members as the 2015-2016 NFTY Board-Elect took the stage for the first time. Suddenly, as we began to sing Josh Nelson’s version of L’dor V’dor, a wave of nostalgia swelled within me and I finally understood the impact of generational leadership – it just happened two years after my time on NFTY Board.

Hugging it Out at NFTY Convention

05 January 2015

During my NFTY experience, one prominent factor has been present throughout: hugging. It’s a physical sign of the mishpacha, the family, we have formed together. NFTY Convention 2013 was no exception. I hugged my sister when we finally landed in LA after five hours of traveling, three time zones, and one layover. I hugged someone I’d never met before in the airport and who I couldn’t stop talking to on the bus. Amidst joyous reunions at the hotel, I hugged my friends from NFTY-PAR, HUC weekends, Kutz, and all the other friends I’d made at URJ programs over the years.

MVP Monday: Lead From Your Seat

22 December 2014

I want to encourage everyone to be that leader from their seat. In most cases, the best leaders are the people who actively engage in the programs, who bring forth new ideas, and who show that they truly care about the organization. Titles don’t matter; what really counts is that you show your passion and love for NFTY. Do that, and people will notice. They will turn their heads towards you when a leader is needed because a title does not define a leader, a leader defines a leader.
