Benji Rosenblum, Programming Vice President (PVP)
Hi NFTY-SW! I’m Benji Rosenblum, and I’m excited to be your 5781-5782 Programming Vice President. I am a junior from Arizona, serving last year as NFTY Phoenix chair. NFTY is one of the most fun and welcoming communities I have ever come across, and I am so grateful to be able to be a part of it. When I’m not running programs or hanging out with other NFTY-ites, you can find me practicing cardistry, backpacking, belting out musical theater songs, and conducting blind taste tests to find out which type of flour makes the best pizza dough. Throughout my time as a NFTY member, I have learned how much NFTY programming has an impact on everyday life, and I'm excited to spend this year giving you new ways to learn, have fun, and strengthen us as a region.
Drew Kolber, Social Action Vice President (SAVP) info coming soon!
Noa Apple, Religious & Cultural Vice President (RCVP)
Hey NFTY-SW! I’m Noa Apple (she/her) and I’m excited to serve a second term as your RCVP! I enjoy playing guitar, talking with friends, and reading. Some of my favorite Jewish musicians are Jacob “Spike” Kraus and Dan Nichols. Their music inspires and connects me to my Jewish heritage. Through NFTY I’ve learned about my Jewish identity and how people around the world express theirs; I hope to bring this back to NFTY-SW!

Ariel Eisen, Communications Vice President (CVP)
Hi NFTY-SW! My name is Ariel Eisen and I am your 5781-5782 Communications Vice President. I have been a part of NFTY since my freshman year. Because of NFTY I’ve made so many friends and have been a part of so many incredible experiences and I
wouldn’t trade the world for one second of it. When I’m not on a call with my Temple Youth Groups, I’m usually talking with friends, watching Netflix, baking, or online window shopping. I’m super excited to serve as SW-CVP and to make amazing merch over the next year!
NFTY Southwest is governed by a board of teen leaders who are elected by their peers that serve a one-year term. Regional board members play a critical role in all aspects of running the region including event planning and marketing, and mentoring teen leaders from our local youth communities. The regional board is mentored by a Regional Director of Youth Engagement who oversees all programs and administration.
