On Monday, the teens at CLTC learned skills on decision making in their classrooms while figuring how to turn all situations into a win-win scenario. They then continued to prepare for the programs that all mock chapters will be running and leading over the next two days. The participants got to choose different skills that they wanted to learn in different rotations such as Israeli dancing, video editing, platform making, and speech writing and giving. Loving her experience in the Rikkudim rotation, Sam Sinder of Kentucky Indiana Ohio says, "I learned a lot about Israeli dancing and I can't wait to take it back to my chapter." The CLTC community later gathered to have a ceremony and reflection on our three lost Israeli boys. "It was really special how we came together as a community to honor the three boys and it made us closer," Madeleine Bendalin of Rocky Mountain Region shares. To finish off the night, a Knesset program was run to educate everyone on Isareli's government and politics and an Israeli fair was held to introduce different parts of Israeli culture to the teens. "It was really interesting to learn about the political parties and their relations," Joel Zishuk of North Florida Region states while learning about the workings of the Israeli parliament.
