NFTY President Daniel Landesberg with URJ President Rabbi Eric Yoffie

Yesterday, hundreds of NFTYites arrived in Dallas. They participated in welcome activities and mixers, visited the NFTY Shuk, and NFTY’s General Board meeting. In the evening, they welcomed Shabbat and joined together for the Shabbat meal. The night’s programming included a song session, a multimedia conversation with some peers in Israel, and floor meetings.
