This week has been full of excitement, as everyone has been putting finishing touches on their creations: chapter tee shirts and songs - to be presented tomorrow night at CLTC Presents. The teens have really honed their organizational skills and planned unique and informative programs - and had great fun in the process. The teens planned programs covering racism and anti-semitism (Stop the Hate,) Special Olympics and dealing with obstacles, a program on Integrity, Israeli army simulation, and an awareness program on how to get involved in service to your community
On Wednesday night,we presented a powerful and emotional program on the Holocaust, focusing on BBYO's March of the Living educational mission to Poland and Israel, which is held every spring. It was a solemn evening, but, a meaningful one. We were all visibly moved.
Last night, special ceremonies inducted the teens into the AZA and BBG international order, a ritual connecting them with the thousands of teens who have attended CLTC over the past 30 + years. The strong display of brotherhood and sisterhood was a wonderful expression of how much the friendships have progressed here.
