The Adath Youth Commission is excited for another sensational year of activities in our youth department. Our Director of Youth Engagement, Sue Shrell Leon, has been fantastic and has scheduled a year full of activities for the youth here at Adath. We are drawing in more of our congregation’s teens and getting them involved in the activities at the Synagogue.
One of the biggest programs on our calendar is our USY play. This year Adath USY will be putting on the play Shrek. We will have performances on Thursday, December 10, Saturday, December 12, and Sunday, December 13 (see below). Your support in attending the performances, as well as donations will be greatly appreciated. The USYers are working very hard to put on a spectacular performance, and they are spending a lot of time bonding together to strengthen our chapter. The play includes our Kadima members who are in 7th and 8th grade.
We are proud of the program we are building from the Maccabees in 4th - 6th grade to the USYers in high school. We have fantastic staff, who are supporting the programs and helping to make the youth program fulfilling and enjoyable for everyone. Please encourage your children/teens to participate any time of the year – we welcome you, always!
