Hi NFTY-MAR! My name is Lindsay Morgenstein, and I am so ecstatic to be your President for the 5777-5778 year. When I'm not bragging about MAR, you can find me baking, traveling, Chaco-tanning, or adding to my ultra-organized life plan. I love impromptu High School Musical sing-a-longs and daily dance parties. I also love to meet new people! I can't wait for a great year!

Joe Lichtenstein, Programming Vice President

Hi NFTY MAR! My name is Joe Lichtenstein and I'm so excited to serve as your Programming Vice President for the coming year!

Davida Rimm-Kaufman, Social Action Vice President
Email Davida

Hi MAR! My name is Davida, and I just paused a YouTube video on earthworms to write this, but more importantly, I am your regional Social Action VP! Other than watching earthworm videos, you can find me eating cheese, hanging lights in my school’s theater, hiking, or convincing people to listen to reggae. One of my goals in this position is to meet every participant and to make Social Action more relevant. See you all this year!

Alicia Steiman, Communications Vice President

Hey NFTY-MAR! My name is Alicia Steiman and I am thrilled to be the Communications Vice President for the 5777-5778 year! Not only are M&Ms my favorite candy, but they’re also the most amazing committee!

Lauren Westendorf, Northern Membership Vice President
Email Lauren

Hey NFTY MAR, I'm Lauren Westendorf, your Northern Membership Vice President! When I'm not saving the bees for Green Team and being involved in my schools Honor Societies, I love playing with my dog, fighting for basic human rights, and knowing way to much Harry Potter trivia. I can't wait to meet you guys this year and discuss Judaism and Hogwarts Houses!!

Maddye Holt, Eastern Membership Vice President
Email Maddye

Shalom NFTY-MAR! I’m Maddye (Mad-e) Holt and I am so excited to be the Eastern Membership Vice President for the 2017-2018 year!! When not at a MAR event, you can either find me adventuring (getting lost) in the wilderness or binge watching Friends/Gilmore Girls on Netflix. My nickname is Moose and our mascot is Moishe the Moose, so by the transitive property I can confidently tell you that THE EAST IS GOING TO WIN TheVent!!!

Adam Schreiman, Western Membership Vice President
Email Adam

Hello NFTY-MAR! My name is Adam Schreiman, and I am so excited to be able to serve as the Western Membership Vice President for the 5777-5778 year. When I am not attending, working or doing anything NFTY, you will most likely find me knee deep in homework or rocking Robinson Tennis gear out on the courts. I love to see new faces and meet new people. I can't wait for the amazing year to come!

Max Krupnick, Southern Membership Vice President
Email Max

What's up NFTY-MAR! I'm Max Krupnick and I'm incredibly honored to serve as your 2017-2018 Southern Membership Vice President! You can often find me working on something newspaper-related, thinking of punny Instagram captions, making a killer grilled cheese, or talking to my MAR friends (but not during ice cream time). I love making new friends, especially if they have any tips on how to beat my younger brother in basketball!
