Youth Educator Debbi Morin and Rabbi Gurevitz will be leading our tenth grade Confirmation Class trip to Washington D.C. for the L’Taken Social Justice Seminar of the Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism on February 9 – 12. This seminar is an intensive four-day study event focusing on Jewish values and social justice. Every year more than one hundred congregations from across the country bring their high school students to participate in this exciting event. This unique opportunity enables students to hear from experts both inside and outside the Jewish community. Every L’Taken Seminar covers several different issue areas in a variety of interactive formats. Each seminar includes an opportunity for students to tour the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum and participate in Havdalah services at one of the memorials. Students also sample the vibrancy of Georgetown and other exciting areas of Washington, DC. To learn more about this special program go to http://rac.org/confprog/ltaken/.
