Event Details

Kallah is our annual convention, focusing on Judaism and social action, and it will take place Friday, October 19 through Sunday, October 21. This program is one of our staple member-only experiences, something that our teens look forward to each year. At Kallah 2018 “The Journey Within” Alephs and BBGs will be given the opportunity to find their own unique path within Judaism. Through seven elective paths, focused on aspects of Jewish tradition, values (middot), and culture, participants will be encouraged to explore and question Jewish beliefs and practices. Kallah 2018 will not only give participants the space to find their passion within Judaism, it will give them the knowledge on how to apply Jewish concepts into their daily lives.  

Cost: $355.00 (due by 10/03/2018)
Deposit Amount: $150.00
