Candidates for President

Jordan Feinberg

Hi NFTY-Southwest! I’m Jordan Feinberg and I’m running to be your 5780-5781 President! I am currently a Junior from Las Vegas, Nevada and I serve as the 5779-5780 NFTY-SW Membership Vice President. I am extremely passionate about NFTY and sustaining this Kehila Kedosha! When I’m not constantly talking about missing my NFTY friends, you can usually find me eating mac and cheese, baking, listening to music, or dancing. NFTY has not only become the primary occupant of my Instagram but it has become a place in which I can learn, express myself, and meet amazing people that have changed me for the better. As a passionate NFTY-ite and a URJ Kutz Camp alum, I’m confident in my ability to lead this region. I love NFTY-SW and all of you so I really hope you would consider me for the position of President!

Candidates for Programming Vice President

Aaron  Rosendorf

Hi NFTY-SW! My name is Aaron J. Rosendorf and I’m running to be your Programming Vice President. Through NFTY I have gained more friends and had closer relationships than anywhere else in my life. I find it inspiring that people I only see a few times a year I FaceTime daily (while being a constant nuisance on my guitar). On my calls I love collaborating with my TYG Board to plan engaging and exciting programs and services for upcoming events. NFTY has given me an unpayable debt and I will always be committed to paying it off. If I’m elected to your Programming Vice President, I hope to give every single person in NFTY-SW the same experiences it gave me and so much more.

Hey y’all! My name is Riley Genevieve Miner and I’m running to serve as your 5780-5781 Membership Vice President. I am a rising senior from MSTY and while my physical home is in El Paso, Texas, the true place I call home is NFTY Southwest. When I’m not with my NFTY family, I’m either at temple helping out as a Madricha, staying after school with my NHS chapter, or at the Croc store picking up a new pair of sick kicks. NFTY has given me so many amazing friendships and led me to have experiences like no other, and because of this I want to show others the magic that lies within this amazing community as your next Membership Vice President.

Abby Reich

Hello, I am Abby Reich, a Junior from Flagstaff! My Nfty-SW journey started during my freshman year when my older brother forced me to go to Fall Kallah. It started out rocky until I met some Juniors that adopted me into their group, and I’ve been in love ever since! Some of my best friends are from NFTY and even though many have already graduated, I still talk to them on a weekly basis. The NFTY-SW community has given so much to me, from friends to leadership experience, so I’ve decided that I want to give back! I always get excited to see the next event’s T-shirt, and as art has always been my passion, it would be an honor to serve as NFTY-SW’s Communications Vice President.
