Shalom from the beautiful woods of Bethany, WV!
CLTC 6 2012 is well under way and we couldn’t be happier to be here with 100 of BBYO’s finest future leaders. It is amazing to see how far we’ve all already come to form a united team of boys and girls. The chapters are cooperating, song sessions are booming, and we’re glad to see everyone exhausted at the end of the day as a result of their extra efforts to make the most out of the short period that we all have together. Wednesday, the Alephs and BBGs built up the past 90 years of history in the form of graham cracker houses to symbolize the strong foundation that BBYO provides for young Jewish leaders. Yesterday, the six chapters held elections to learn the ins and outs of the process. Congratulations again to everyone that participated! As Shabbat is just around the corner, we anticipate joining in prayers, songs and the programs that our chapters are working hard to plan. We can’t wait to continue building this community here at Bethany as we further learn about one another as the days go on. Check back soon for more updates from the largest CLTC to ever hit Bethany.

Hello BBYO Parents,
Allow me to introduce myself! My name is Josh Goldberg, from Dallas, TX, and I’m thrilled to be the Songleader here at CLTC this summer! My goals are to show your teens how powerful music can be as a tool for building community, Jewish identity, spirituality, and of course, to have a LOT of fun!
Our session is going great so far! Together we have been learning and singing everything from traditional Jewish melodies, modern prayers and Jewish themed songs, classic campfire songs, to some of their favorite hit songs on the radio today. The energy at our nightly song sessions is unbelievable.
This weekend, the BBG chapters created and led beautiful Shabbat evening, morning, and the boys led a rousing Havdallah service. Today, we had a Songleading “How to” session, where 18 teens learned how play a Jewish song, “Od Yavo Shalom”, and led their peers in singing it!
I look forward to another week of musical moments and discoveries with your teens!
