NFTy Northeast Regional Board

Meet the 5783 NFTY Northeast Regional Board!

Erica O’Donnell - President

Hello! My name is Erica O’Donnell, and I am the NFTY-NE President. I’m from Wayland Massachusetts, and Judaism has been such a huge part of my life, between NFTY, temple, and holidays with the family. I do have some non-Jewish hobbies though, including hiking, cross-country skiing, and listening to music. I’m looking forward to spending the next year with NFTY-NE!

Kelly Dulac- Liaison Vice President

Hi! My name is Kelly Dulac, I am from Cape Cod, MA, and I am the Liaison Vice President of NFTY Northeast! I enjoy photography (film and digital), art, lacrosse, and reading. My Judaism is such an important part of my life, and I am so grateful for NFTY for keeping me connected with my Judaism in such a supportive atmosphere. I am so excited about this upcoming year!

Jonah Pearlman - Programming Vice President

Hi! My name is Jonah Perlman, and I am the Programming Vice President of NFTY Northeast! I am passionate about music, tennis, and my temple friends. Temple friends are truly the best kinds of friends! I am excited to get to know everyone this year!

Sammi Goldblatt - Religious and Cultural Vice President

Hello! My name is Sammi Goldblatt, and I am the Religious and Cultural Vice President. I have lived in the small town of Hopkinton, New Hampshire, my entire life! Some of my passions include playing soccer, basketball, and softball and I LOVE playing with my animals. NFTY Northeast has made such a huge impact on me, and I cannot wait for this upcoming year!

Beia Blank - Social Action Vice President

Hi! I’m Beia Blank and I am the Social Action Vice President of NFTY Northeast! Some of my passions include creating and listening to music, Jewish community, and social advocacy. NFTY has been dear to me since 8th grade, and I am more than excited for what is to come this year!

Xiao Maddock-Mark - Membership and Financial Vice President

Hey! My name is Xiao which uses the Chinese character for night, such as in the word for midnight snack or the literary word for thieves robbing under cover of the night. Contrary to what that name might suggest, I do not enjoy staying up late at night (or robbing people), however, I do like activities such as drawing, painting, daytime naps, playing piano, and listening to music. I’m excited about this coming year, and I hope to make NFTY a meaningful place for everyone!

Andrew Berkman- Communications Vice President

Hello! My name is Andrew Berkman, and I am the NFTY Northeast Communications Vice President. I am from Needham, MA and some of my hobbies include painting, skiing, listening to music, photography, and playing the guitar. Being Jewish is a substantial part of who I am, and NFTY has allowed me to be a part of a loving, welcoming community where I can truly be myself. I am so excited about this upcoming year!

Julia Forman-NFTY Representative

Shalom! My name is Julia, and I am the NFTY Northeast NFTY Representative! I have been involved in NFTY since eighth grade and have never felt more at home in a community. In my free time, I enjoy reading, hiking, playing with my dog, and spending time with friends. I am beyond excited for this year and can not wait for the next event 🙂

Helping Teens Find Their Voice

Helping Teens Find Their Voice

As many people in NFTY know, if I hadn’t become a NFTY regional director, I would have become a music teacher. I have been incredibly lucky to have had opportunities to build meaningful relationships with students through teaching music in various capacities over the past decade. There is something so gratifying about facilitating other people’s personal growth.
