By Leora G & Hannah P, NFTY Missouri Valley
As young Jewish women in the Colorado community, we have both grown to be avid members in local, regional, and nationwide groups, all coming together for one common purpose: to spread our Jewish morals and values to all stretches of the world. Being a minority, we see the significance in coming together to celebrate our Jewish identity in many aspects. After being in NFTY for almost five years, our love for our religion has blossomed. As we have trekked through the journey of high school, we have learned about other minorities and standing up for our beliefs through the many events across our region, teaching us how to better our world with tikkun olam.
