Join us in Houston with other GFC, NFTY-TOR and URJ Youth Alumni for a service-based trip in response to Hurricane Harvey! For our first-ever service weekend for college students, we are uniting with Act Now Houston to help in the post-disaster rebuilding efforts. All on-site costs in Houston are covered during the weekend, including food, transportation within Houston, events and hotel accommodations.
On Friday evening, we will come together for a Shabbat dinner and services. We will also prepare for the weekend ahead and learn about the communities where we will be serving. Saturday, we will be praying with our feet and working on-site, participating in disaster-relief projects with Act Now. Saturday evening, we will celebrate Havdallah and spend a fun night on the town in Houston! On Sunday before we conclude the weekend, we will learn about how the Houston Jewish community was impacted by Hurricane Harvey and complete a half-day service project followed by lunch.
