Our incoming TYGRS president, Daniella Sklarz, is currently spending the summer at Kutz Camp in Warwick, New York. Kutz is our Union for Reform Judaism's Teen Leadership leadership camp and draws those involved in NFTY (North American Federation of Temple Youth) from across the continent for four weeks of intensive study and programs to enhance the temple youth group experience. While focusing on a selected major and on-going minors, studying Jewish values, participating in discussion with peers and a host of related activities, teen leaders develop a greater understanding of our Reform Movement and experience programs to bring to their home congregations. In addition, during a day in New York City, students visit the United Nations and the Israeli Consulate.
Each contact Dani makes with me is filled with such enthusiasm with what she is acquiring and plans to bring to GRS. Both Dani and I are so excited about the future of youth programming for our congregation.
For additional information about the URJ overnight camps for children and teens, please visit the URJ website at URJ.org.
Rabbi Andrew R. Sklarz, MA, MSW, RJE
