Inductions were the most emotional night of my life. As you are standing in the circle around your brother alephs who have put so much to this organization, many emotions come over you. You realize that this organization of Jewish teens is much bigger than you. So many Jewish teens around the world have shared the same experience of being inducted, and knowing that just amazes me.

As I look at my aleph pin that I received last night, I think of the future of this organization. Standing in a circle with 44 alephs that have showed me brotherhood at its peak, I know we can be the change we wish to see in this order.

Hi! My name is Matt Baker from Lonestar.

Grant Braden Hansell planned the most amazing Inductions last night. This whole experience was life changing and eye opening, and as I return to my chapter as Shapiro AZA’s Gizbor I know what it takes to plan a successful fundraiser. All thanks to the amazing staff, my advisor Drew and, my 43 brothers. I love these people, I love this place, and I will miss them all dearly.

Last night I became a part of the International Order of the B’nai Brith Girls.

The experience was amazing, and as memorable as could be. Judith did a wonderful job, and I would like to thank her for all the time and effort she put into the inductions. I know that I will walk away from CLTC with the memory of the best International Inductions that have ever been held.

Whats up! My name is Jay Seline from NRE-D.C. Council

The Inductions we had last night were the most emotional and special inductions I’ve ever seen or been in. It reminded me of how brotherhood stays strong when you bring 43 of the greatest alephs you could ever be with in the 12 days we have together. The special part of the whole induction process was writing down my past regrets, tearing them, and getting them off my back.

There were mixed emotions in the circle. Ever more special is how close we all came together as one big family within the 12 days.

CLTC 6 Grant's Second day

Hi! My name is Grant Hansell, AZA Coordinator for CLTC 6.

Wow is really all I can think of to say.

Just 48 hours into CLTC and I already feel like I've known everybody here for years. It's been an incredible experience seeing high school students from across the nation come to Bethany college and immediately become a family.

From the moment they arrived, I saw incredible enthusiasm, passion, and a desire to learn. My favorite part of CLTC so far has been the history program where AZA came together and learned the Seven Cardinal Principles by pouring seven different condiments onto Drew the advisor. We will celebrate Shabbat tomorrow and I know the chapters are planning some incredible and inspiring services

I can't wait to see how we all continue to grow and become a closer Kehilah over the next 10 days.

CLTC 6 Judith's Second Day

Hi! My name is Judith Cohen, BBG Coordinator here at CLTC 6.

Having built up my excitement for this experience for at least the last six months, there may have been a slight tinge of worry in the back of my mind that CLTC might not live up to everything I had built it up to be. I have never been so happy to be proven wrong. The first two days of CLTC have far exceed anything I could have imagined or hoped for. There is nothing more rewarding as a coordinator than to see how engaged and impassioned our participants are in every activity, from chapter lessons to song sessions to friendship circle, the teens’ energy and enthusiasm is inspiring!

Yesterday’s focus, as chosen by the dorm of the day, was kehilah, or community. Our participants began to come together to create their own new kehilah in rotations like Speed Dating, Public Speaking, and Exploring Judaism. I thoroughly enjoyed learning more about the teens by leading the Speed Dating rotation and a discussion about everyone’s different reasons for coming to CLTC.

As Shabbat approaches, I’m excited to see what the chapters have planned for us to celebrate. I know it will be an uplifting and unifying experience for our community, and I can’t wait to take part!

On July 20th 2013 atCLTC 6 had an amazing Shabbat! We woke up and went to a beautiful service, we sang and clapped and cheered and prayed! Then we learned about different types of people, and how to be successful. I learned so much from this program. I learned how to work with others based on my style of working and their style of working. After that we ate a delicious lunch and prayed and everyone had so much fun!

Following our lunch, we collaborated in little groups to put on a play. Each group did a different act and it was so fun! Lots of laughs were shared and everyone was smiling. Then we got to have free time where we could go to the gym, be with friends, sleep, or anything you really wanted! (Within limits) After our free time we ate dinner, immediately after dinner we had an inspirational program where we learned about stereotypical names and how words affect each other! Every person took away from it and it was such a moving program. After that, we split up into boys and girls and learned our spirit cheers and chants! It was so much fun and we screamed and jumped and laughed! Following the cheering, we went to a Havdallah service.

This was by far the best Havdallah I’ve ever experienced. Everyone was unified and was filled with passion. We sat in a circle around candles and sang songs. It was so moving and was spectacular. Following that we walked outside and had spirit circles where we demonstrated the cheers we had learned before that! It was so fun and loud and everyone was screaming and chanting! After that we got to eat cake, and then we stood in a circle and started talking about our days.

This was amazing; so many people got so emotional and were crying. We are such a close group of people and the emotion in the atmosphere was overwhelming. We stood and sang and so many people continued to cry. This was the best experience of my life, after four days, we were all so close that we could all cry and help each other. CLTC is the best experience I’ve ever had and yesterday made it all the more special!

Hey! I'm Sam Waldman, Damn proud BBG and excited to be at CLTC.

Okay so lets do a recap of CLTC so far. I promise to do an honest account of our first day so... Here it is. The first day of CLTC in one word: awkward. It's always awkward meeting new people. There are one hundred and two participants at CLTC 6. Add the staff. Subtract the 11 kids from my heart and home South Jersey Region #35. That still leaves over 91 new people to meet. So let's multiply awkward by at least 91. Pretty bad right? WRONG! Because I forgot to take into account what makes any situation less awkward, less scary. A common bond. EVERYONE here is Jewish and we ALL love BBYO. So once all the awkward cancels out, what are we left with? 100 plus people screaming during Shira, toughing Bethany's mountainous terrain, all of us ready for the next day.

CLTC is advertised as the best 12 days of your life, but when you actually get here, you realize it's not just a slogan. I learned that Alephs AREN'T scary. I learned that girls and guys from different regions can meet in person for the first time and feel a connection just by being here. I learned that spooey parties in your dorm room WILL make your entire chapter come running. Last but not least, I learned that I truly LOVE BBG with more passion and heart than I thought possible. I learned that this organization is something I cannot live without.
