AJC Programs

  1. Leaders For Tomorrow (LFT) Program – Applications are now being accepted for the third year of LFT in this region. This is a AJC’s advocacy training program to prepare students for college. The idea is to empower them and to offer them strategies in the AJC style. It is not about talking points. It takes place once a month for seven months. The second cohort of 38 students is now completing the program. They are from public schools, private schools and day schools and have all levels of knowledge and background. If you know any rising juniors or seniors in high school for whom this might be appropriate, please apply at https://ajconline.wufoo.com/forms/20192020-ajc-leaders-for-tomorrow/(be sure to select Westchester/Fairfield as your region)

 

  1. What to Expect on Campus – This Monday, March 25th at 5:30 p.m., we will hold a special annual program for high schoolers, entitled, “What Jewish Students Might Confront on Campus and What to Do About It.” Please pass the attached flyer along to this age group. We only do this program once a year. They will also hear about LFT as above. It is a great program to attend if there is any interest in doing the LFT program. The teacher is Seffi Kogen, AJC’s Global Director for Youth Programs.

Are you a good listener who enjoys being with other people? Have you been looking for a way to have an impact on someone else’s life? If so, please consider becoming a volunteer for Regional Hospice and Palliative Care. Whether playing cards, looking at family photos, running errands, providing caregivers with a break or listening to a patient tell his or her stories, it is meaningful time together for both the patient and the volunteer. Family support volunteers provide companionship for patients and much-needed respite for caregivers, typically 2 to 4 hours per week. They do NOT provide hands-on care. We are hosting a training session for new Family Support Volunteers in Greenwich, CT: April 10th, 17th and 24th from 9:30am-3:30pm (ALL 3 days)

Participation Requirements: • Fill out an application online at https://regionalhospicect.org/volunteer • Schedule an interview • Submit three (3) references • Complete a background check ***Class sizes are limited***

Time to visit Israel

Beit Chaverim is planning our first community trip to Israel.

Time to make plans to revisit your favorite places, or explore Israel for the first time.  You are going to fall in love- all over again!  This is a great opportunity to feed our minds, souls and bellies (food tastes best in Israel!)

I would like to gauge interest and find out what dates work best for everyone.

Let the office  know what week between 10/22 and 11/20 would work best for you.
