Global Jewry - France

As Kallah wraps up, we reflect upon the great memories that we had. One of the awesome experiences that Kallah affords us is the opportunity to meet Jewish teens from around the world, and so I'd like to share a blog written by participants Alex Danoff and Idan Hovav about Jewry in France.

Recap of the Week

came to perform for our camp, in addition to two guest camps. The teens loved hearing some of their favorite Kallah songs being sung by the man who actually wrote them. Another highlight was that a group of our musically talented kids got to go up on the stage and perform several songs along with Dan.

Review of July 20th's Program Pt. 1

Eli Shankman and Josh Kaplan here! You can't spell "fraternity" without the "nity" in "unity", and here at K'far AZA that's what we're all about. But what is K'far AZA you ask?

Shabbat Shalom from Impact: Chicago!

Yesterday we were fortunate enough to meet with a panel of philanthropists. The panel included Sarah Star of the Crown Foundation, an influential donor here in Chicago, and Ted Perlman, whose mother Anita Perlman founded the B'nai Brith Girls! Moderated by Matt Grossman, the head of BBYO international, we were able to ask the panel questions and hear their interesting perspectives on philanthropy, community service, making an impact, and much more! It was an incredible opportunity and one we will keep with us for the rest of our lives. Today we're off to Michigan Avenue for a little shopping time before heading back to campus to prep for a relaxing Shabbat!

Philanthropy Boot Camp - The Day I Saw The Big Bean

Yesterday, Wednesday July 25, Impact: Chicago departed to Millennium Park in downtown Chicago on  the metra. After eating some lunch we all broke up into teams and went off for a scavenger hunt in the park looking for famous landmarks Such as the Bean, fountain, pavilion, theater, gardens and more! Through this activity we learned about different foundations who pay for these attractions to be built.

UCAN!

Today the UCAN group visited a different site than previously. We went to Damen street to interview teens and had an outstanding number of participants in comparison to the other days! The interviews were similar to the ones from before, however we all discussed how we felt more impactfull today. At the end, the participants requested to come in and ask our group questions and give us feedback on what they did and didn't like about out interviewing. It was great to have them give us constructive criticism and learn about the areas of the interview that could be misunderstood or taken the wrong way. This opened all of our eyes to sensitivity among all people and gave us the oppertunity to improve for next week! It was a very successful and rewarding day for all of us in the UCAN group!

More about CJE

Today i delivered newspapers for residents at CJE Senior Life, a home for elderly Jews. As i delivered newspapers i met a lot of interesting people with amazing life stories. Many were excited to talk to a young volunteer and happily shared their experiences growing up in different places, traveling around the world, and fighting in various wars. While helping the residents walk to lunch I reflected on the great lessons they taught me.

CJE According to Lydia Safir

Today at CJE we got to interact more with the residents. I got to go back and talk to a lady who I spoke with the previous time. She had great life advice, and I got to meet her husband. That was a really neat experience because I watched her face light up when she saw him. Also, we continued planning for our prom and it looks like it's going to be awesome. We're spreading the word to all the senior residents!

Kallah Day 6 and 7

Now that we're a week into Kallah, we've settled into a pattern. Mornings are spent with Judaic educators. Then, afternoons are spent in electives, such as chugim and specialist series, in which teens do activities ranging from acapella to making murals for camp. Finally, everyday ends with an evening program and perhaps rikkudim (Israeli dancing).
