Consultation on Conscience: Making the Ask

NFTY » NFTY-GER   |   May 1, 2015 12:00 AM
Hello my name is Sam Dorow and I’m the Social Action Vice President, serving and elect, from NFTY GER.

NFTY-GER: After NFTY Convention, GER Teens Debrief with In-flight Interviews

NFTY » NFTY-GER   |   Feb 27, 2015 12:00 AM

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.”
