For the last 20 years, Reform congregations in southeastern Wisconsin have held MCRC shabbat services, each year focusing on a different topic. This year is unique in that teens from area Reform congregations, as well as members of BBYO and NFTY, are organizing the event. About 100 teens are expected to attend.
“This year the teens will be working together to plan and lead a service and oneg around the theme ‘What Can You Do?’”, said Brian Avner, director of education at Congregation Sinai. “Throughout the service teens will share facts and information about how young people can make a difference.”
No more “bystanderism”
