Rabbi Alexander M Schindler NFTY Israel Experience

AlexClrThe NFTY Summer Program in Israel is named in memory of Rabbi Alexander M. Schindler, President of the UAHC (now the Union for Reform Judaism) from 1973 until his retirement in 1996. Rabbi Schindler was deeply committed to both Israel and our Movement's young people. It is fitting that the NFTY summer experience in Israel bears his name.
