Netzer Veida: Investing in the Issue

Like many Jewish teens, I was raised to love Israel. Dayschool education, Sunday school, URJ camps – all were components of my identity as a Reform Zionist Jew, and all taught me the ties, both emotional and historical, that bound me to Eretz Israel. But much as I cared for Israel, it had once been nothing but paragraphs in a textbook, perhaps an anecdote from a respected teacher. When I took my first trip to Israel with NFTY two years ago, it suddenly became real, and afterward, the news stories and social media feeds that had once flooded my mind began to impact me emotionally as well. Israel had become real to me – an actual land filled with people I knew and cared about. Real world experience materialize issues for me, transforming it from entity to reality.

L’Taken: Justice for All

Everyday I go to school and say the Pledge of Allegiance. Every time I say it the last 3 words stick out to me the most. Those three words are “justice for all”.

MVP Monday: Lead From Your Seat

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.
