I swear NFTY Convention was the best thing I have ever done. I made new connections, learned how to improve my community, reflected on important topics, and had the most fun of my life, so far. Every moment was incredible, from morning Zumba and yoga, to Havdalah with our neighboring regions, and so much more. I already can’t wait for my next NFTY event, and will never forget my time in Dallas with more than 1000 of the most amazing people I have ever met.
The Torah is this incredible document, this guidebook, this unification of the Jewish people. Comprised of epic tales of stealing birthrights, and stories of the heart-wrenching near-sacrifice of a young child at the peak of a mountain. Through it all, the Torah threads a unique message and moral through each and every story. The Torah, however, is not simply a saga of thrilling adventures, but also a manual on set of how to on create the unique Jewish culture that encapsulates our lives today
