Rather than hitting the slopes or lying on the beach, the Midwest teens joined nearly 400 Jewish teens of all backgrounds from across North and South America at NCSY’s Yarchei Kallah, a 5-day immersive Torah study experience in Stamford, CT.
The teens spent the weekend learning from some of the Jewish world’s foremost educators and personalities, with many teens discovering that the Torah’s ancient wisdom can be applied to their modern-day lives.
Chassidic singer Shulem Lemmer also headlined an interactive concert on Thursday evening.
Those words encapsulated the Yarchei Kallah experience.
Nearly 400 Jewish teens had the chance to experience the joy and meaning and connection that comes with being a Jew.
It was a New Year’s ‘party’ they won’t soon forget.
