NFTY-MV: SNAP Reflection

NFTY » NFTY-MV
Eating on $4 a day not only helped me to appreciate the constant struggle of those facing food uncertainty, but also served as a reminder. While I can go back to a normal diet after finishing the week, so many other people do not have that option.

NFTY-MV: “Do Not Stand Idly By”

NFTY » NFTY-MV
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.

My name is Ethan Stone, I am the President of NFTY Missouri Valley, and while I write to represent NFTY Missouri Valley, the views expressed here are my own. I just now got off the “Unpacking Race Relations in the United States” webinar run by NFTY. I had the pleasure of hearing the familiar voices of NFTY Staff and special guests Rabbi Randy Fleisher, a rabbi from Central Reform Congregation in Greater St. Louis; and Zoey Fleisher, Rabbi Fleisher’s daughter, co-President of Central Reform Congregation’s youth group CRFTY, and a good friend of mine. Topics that were discussed included the events in Ferguson and Staten Island and the worldwide repercussions of those events, the meaning of privilege and the applications of that knowledge in our daily lives, and different forms of racism.
