Would a world with tzara’at really be so bad? Margot Reinstein, a former advisor from Upstate NY and NJ NCSY, and a former bus head of NCSY GIVE, shares some important thoughts about the different forms of tzara’at, seeing spots, and what it all has to do with Yom Ha’Atzmaut and the Land of Israel.
It’s the gift that keeps on giving!!! This week, Natan Brownstein, an alum of Portland NCSY and former advisor & City Director in Upstate NY NCSY, pulls together Purim, the slavery in Egypt, Rosh Chodesh, and the parsha (whew!) to teach us a very important lesson.
