An Update from Boston: ONE FOR ALL!
Posted on 11/13/2011 @ 10:59 PM
All of the teens arrived safely in Boston ready for our first day! Our teen coordinators, Sam Rubin from DC Council and Sarah Minion from South Jersey Region, started the program with a thought provoking opening program. We watched the film, “The Lunch Date” and had a conversation about the assumptions we make. Sam and Sarah lead us through some fun and interesting ice breakers as we got to know one another.
Later this afternoon, we were joined by a fascinating panel from our partner agency, Keshet. That conversation continued after dinner as teens spoke about growing up LGBT in the Jewish community.
The evening ended with an inspirational keynote from Robert Lewis, The Vice President of Programming for the Boston Foundation. Robert lead the group in a conversation about how equality encourages leadership. We had a great first day and are looking forward to tomorrow morning! Please check back tomorrow for some updates from our participants. Natalie Sukienik
