South-Florida-logo

NCSY and AIPAC will be hosting a Shabbaton at the Boca Raton Synagogue (BRS) on February 4. The guest speakers will introduce the concepts of Israel advocacy and pride. Sessions will focus on practical discussions regarding current threats to Israel and college readiness workshops. A special orientation session will be held for the contingent traveling to the AIPAC Policy Conference in Washington in March. Teens from Weinbaum Yeshiva High School, Hillel North Miami Beach and Southern NCSY chapters all over are expected to attend.

“It’s important to offer a variety of programs to excite teens about their Judaism and connectivity to our community,” said Rabbi Benjamin Gonsher, director of Institutional Advancement at Southern NCSY.

“For some, it’s the Shabbat experience, for others, it’s being with other Jewish friends, doing Jewish things and for still others it’s learning how to defend Israel. With partners like AIPAC and the Boca Raton Synagogue at our Israel Advocacy Shabbaton, I know there’ll be something for everyone.”

NCSY is a national youth group where Jewish teens are encouraged to grow into leaders.

NCSY is committed to providing a safe space where teens can celebrate their Jewish heritage; embrace Torah and tradition; develop a positive Jewish identity; acquire invaluable leadership skills; connect with dedicated Jewish role models; and learn to live passionately Jewish lives.
