Youth Programming
Dear Beth Jacob Youth Children,

We hope that you are enjoying your summer vacation. Summer is a time to take a breath of fresh air and relax from a year full of studying and hard work. While you are taking a break from school we never want to take a break from Torah, Tefillah, And Gemilut Chasadim(good deeds). It is our hope that this packet will help you continue fulfilling these items in your life.  Click here  for a printable version of the material and make sure to print out before Shabbat so that you can do these activities on Shabbat.

This Shabbat we are starting an exciting parent child tefillah. If you haven't signed up yet, we are already at capacity this week. We hope that you consider joining us next week for SPARK 2.0. Make sure to register early so you can secure a spot.

We will be holding a raffle each Tuesday for anyone who has completed any or all of these activities. You will get one entry for each item you complete. You will also get 0.25 cents credit towards awesome gift cards at some local restaurants.
So, if you complete all these activities, you will get 5 entries for a chance to win a $20 Amazon Gift card and $1.25 towards either a Munchies, Pizza World, or Jeffs gift card. 

After Shabbat send this checklist to  by Sunday night, and you will get credit for completing your mission.  Click here  for checklist.
