What an Incredible Weekend!
I'm still smiling. Fall Retreat this year was a total blast - I hope your teens had as much fun as we did.
Our Shabbat was full of gems, beginning with a sweet and powerful Kabbalat Shabbat lead by our staff and teens and continuing with games, thought-provoking workshops, and lots of Jewish love.
These retreats are important for so many reasons, but the biggest thing I notice is that our teens get a felt sense of Jewish values; we use Shabbat time to rest and reconnect, we participate in traditions that have carried through thousands of years, and we treat each other as if bt'selem elohim - G'd is within all of us.
Thanks for sharing your teens with us. I feel so lucky to get to do this holy work with this community.
I hope to see your teen on our next retreat!
