NFTY-PAR: The Impact Youth Group Makes on a Congregation

NFTY » NFTY-PAR   |   Feb 5, 2015 12:00 AM
I would not be here were it not for NFTY. My guess is that, for many of us, that’s true. Our youth group has recently rebuilt itself through the hard efforts and commitment of several teens, like Jason Kramer, Ariel Friedlander, and Abby Kamen, and our talented advisor Avi Remetz. It would be easy to say, “my kids did that and are grown—it’s not for me.” or “my kids aren’t old enough yet”, but I would ask you to see our Youth Group as an essential aspect of the congregation, and to support it. For in doing so, you support our future as a congregation. L’dor Vador Nagid Godlecha: From generation to generation, we will tell of Your greatness. L’dor vador—in every generation, may WE protect this chain.

NFTY-PAR: My Introduction to ARZA

NFTY » NFTY-PAR   |   Jan 29, 2015 12:00 AM
During NFTY-PAR’s social action oriented event, WINSTY, I learned something new that will now impact my Reform Jewish experience forever. Rabbi Jack Paskoff, the Rabbi at our host synagogue, introduced me to ARZA (ahr-tzah), the Association of Reform Zionists of America—who they are, what they do, and why it is important that we act now to support them. I had never known of this organization, and now I am not only aware of it, but I believe it is my duty to advocate for ARZA, because I believe in Reform Judaism and I believe in Israel being the homeland of all the Jewish people.

NFTY-PAR: Making a Difference with a Small Donation

NFTY » NFTY-PAR   |   Jan 26, 2015 12:00 AM
Being a part of the NFTY-PAR community has affected me in many different ways. I have made life-long friendships, learned many Jewish values, including helping others that are less fortunate. However, the most important part to me is the social action component. Over the weekend of January 16th-18th, WINSTY was held at my temple, Congregation Shaarai Shomayim in Lancaster, PA. Over the weekend PARticipants from all across Pennsylvania, Southern New Jersey and Delaware, helped improve my community while having a fun time with friends. It was inspiring for me to see my fellow PARites learn and grow from projects they participated in throughout the Lancaster community.
