As we enter into our 3rd week, there are some important items to be aware of:
–Midrasha’s Fall Retreat RSVP link is now OPEN! We already have a LOT of buzz about this retreat. My suggestion is this: We have a higher percentage of teens who stay involved with Midrasha throughout the year when they attend a retreat earlier in the year. Encourage your teen to attend the Fall Retreat and let’s get them better connected to their Jewish community now! And, you already have $200 toward a retreat or excursion.
— This past ?Sunday we had a guest teacher named George Stevens from Dror Leadership High School in Israel. Dror High is a service learning-based semester for 10th and 11th graders where students study in English at an Israeli high school, meet all their academic requirements, and gain the skills to become tikkun olam leaders in the 21st Century. Check out their video or email George at firstname.lastname@example.org for more info about this exciting new program!
–Our very own Jamie Cohen will be giving a presentation to our teens this Sunday during Opening Circle on his experience as a Midrasha alum and why retreats were/are valuable to him.
Lastly, if you have yet registered for Midrasha, please do! All of your teens belong here in this dynamic and colorful Jewish community!
ps…some photos from Sunday night!
Dear Midrasha Families:
TV/TC Midrasha 2014-15 has officially begun and we are jumping for joy! Literally.
Opening Night was on September 7th and we had tons of teens in attendance, a futuristic Photo Booth, our annual Scavenger Hunt, elective round robins, introductions to new and returning staff, a delicious nacho bar and peaceful closing circle where we sang our first “Hashkiveinu” of the year.
And, this week, we’re welcoming George Stevens, the ed Director from D’ror Leadership High School in Israel who will be teaching an elective called, “My Experience on the Gaza Border and the Prospects of Peace.”
ALSO! BIG NEWS! Our Fall Retreat is October 24-26th. If your teen is interested in attending, please stay tuned for the link to RSVP!
