In Pursuit of Justice: My Experience on America’s Journey for Justice

NFTY » NFTY-PAR   |   Sep 8, 2015 12:00 AM
It was 8 AM when we began to march. We laced up our sneakers, donned our hats and sunglasses, and lathered on sunscreen as we took to the pavement, eager to trek the seventeen miles that lay ahead. It was a muggy August day in rural South Carolina, but the heat did not diminish our zeal in taking a stand for civil rights on America’s Journey for Justice, a 40-day, 860-mile trek from Selma to Washington, DC, sponsored by the NAACP.

The 10 Commandments of PARticipation

NFTY » NFTY-PAR   |   Sep 2, 2015 12:00 AM
During NFTY-PAR’s Summer Leadership Kallah, the PAR Board ran workshops for PARticipants. These workshops consisted of what we, the PAR Board, felt were important skills to have when in a leadership role. They ranged from learning about the effects of social media to learning how to fundraise and create merchandise to learning about SWOT analysis and how to asses a TYG.

May Brought Exciting New Changes

NFTY » NFTY-PAR   |   Jun 4, 2015 12:00 AM
May is a very important month in the NFTY-PAR community, most likely the most important. May is the changing of the guard, the beginning and the end. NFTY-PAR’s first event of the new year, Haggigah/Maccabiah (or Hag/Mac), takes place in May. The event is our new member event in which current eighth graders from around the region are invited and twelfth graders are not. It is the first event without the seniors that graduated at Spring Kallah just one month earlier. The newly installed regional board plans the entire event in about the span of one month, which in and of itself is a spectacular feat.
