Kicking Off Impact: DC Jam
Posted on 06/29/2010 @ 10:59 AM
Session 1 of Impact: DC JAM began today. All of the students arrived safely and energized - regardless of how far and long they traveled.
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, Adam Greenwald, our Director of Education led our first Beit Midrash session called “The Beginnings of 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 exciting.
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!
