This is our newest event that combines our traditional leadership and learning NFTY-TOR event, N’aseh V’Nishmah, and our travel social justice trip, March on Austin!

Highlights include:

Celebrating Shabbat together at Greene Family Camp with musical services and dinner with old and new friends.

Faculty and teen-led programs on exploring how our Jewish tradition teaches us about healthy dialogue, civility, and the brokenness you see in the world.

Saturday trip to Austin for an interactive training with the Anti-Defamation League that will equip students to respond effectively and pro-actively to anti-Semitism. We will have additional speakers and training so that teens can learn how to be upstanders for other minority groups and explore how they can make an impact on their local communities.

We will wrap up our time in Austin with a hands-on community service project with a low-income school district.

We will return to camp for a relaxing evening with a campfire Havdallah service, campfire song session (with s’mores), and fun programming.
