To me, being a Cabinet member is something special. To me, it means that I can still help the wonderful region we all know and love even if I’m not on regional board. Last year, when I lost the election for CVP to someone else (who did an absolutely amazing job this year), I thought my chance to give back to the region that had given so much to me, was over. Then, when the Cabinet application came out, I got excited again, rekindling my desire to help this region run the way it does. But, I did not receive a position again. Despite these setbacks, I continued to help the region as much as I could. The only real difference was the title. While this title did establish a large difference between me and the regional board, when I was leading a program or helping to set up for services, the title did not matter. Luckily, my hard work paid off, as I was appointed Assistant Program Coordinator at Winter Kallah and appointed Program Coordinator at Hagigah. What I want every NFTY-GER member who reads this to do is, no matter what your title, give back to the region. It doesn’t matter if you’re president of GER, your youth group, or a general member, you can give back to GER and the rewards will be great. If you give back, not only are you ensuring that NFTY-GER will have a long-lasting future, but you are giving countless others the experience that you had. See you all soon at Kickoff and Fall Kallah!
