Kicking Off IMPACT: DC
Posted on 07/13/2011 @ 10:59 AM
All of the students arrived safely and energized - regardless of how far and long they traveled. Our teen coordinators and Madrachim greeted the teens with some ice breaker games and tours of the GW Campus.
After a welcome program, all of the students moved into their rooms. For many, it was their first experience unpacking in a college dorm. After a little down time, Rabbi Brent Spodek, our Director of Education led our first Beit Midrash session called “What is Social Justice?” Students tackled what the definition of social justice is and started to ask questions as to what and who they should “serve.” Everyone actively participated and it was great to see the group starting to bond.
After Beit Midrash, we had a great first dinner: Schwarma and Falafel!
We closed the evening with a fun program lead by our teen coordinators. It produced lots of laughter and set the tone for a wonderful two weeks.
We’re ready for day 2!
