Final Shabbat - Bar Mitzvah at CLTC
Posted on 06/28/2010 @ 11:37 AM
Our final Shabbat together begins tonight. One of our teens, Ryan Wyman, never had a Bar Mitzvah and worked closely with our Judaic Educator, Marge Eiseman, to be called to the Torah tomorrow. We're all very excited to celebrate the simcha with him.
The teens were bright, smart and a lot of fun; and we learned a lot from each other. I hope that they will share all of the details with you when they return home.
Clearly, we have a lot to celebrate - however, the success of this program is not about the twelve days spent here, but, rather, what each teen will accomplish in the days and years to come. It will be fun to watch their growth.
FYI: We will communicate with them often throughout the next year, providing them with more information and tips to use in their chapters.
Special thanks to our great staff -
Steven Molberger, Leadership Director, and his leadership advisors: Mitch Liebeskind, Josh Langer, Debbie Ornstein, Michael Abramovitz and Camryn Kruger.
Youth Coordinators: Leah Chakoff and Josh Kipnis
Specialty staff: Marge Eiseman (Judaic Educator/ Songleader) and Paula Ploper (Israeli Dance Specialist.)
Administrative staff: Jacob Sachs
Thank you for giving your teen this opportunity. It was an experience that they will never forget. You may want to think about how they can continue their leadership journey by sending them to another wonderful BBYO leadership program next summer or they can travel to one of our great BBYO destinations around the world.
