and who will be chopped !

This event will be free to paid Kadima members, and $10 to non-members. Dinner will be served.
We appreciate your RSVP by TOMORROW, Wednesday, October 24 at noon so we can plan in advance.
Help us prepare for the Midnight Run!
Sunday, November 11, 5:30-8:30 p.m.
Teens in 6th grade and up are invited to drop in and help us get ready for our annual Midnight Run , making sandwiches and packing up supplies.
Please note that since the point of this event is to help the hungry, we are not serving dinner to the teen volunteers, but they are invited to bring their own vegetarian dinner or snacks.
Donate Supplies for the Run!
Families of teens in 6th and 7th grade are asked to donate toiletries, including small sizes of toothpaste, toothbrushes, soap, shampoo, deodorant, brushes, combs, and tissues.

We also need clean used clothing and other supplies. Please view the list of items needed:
What is Kadima?
Kadima is Conservative Judaism's international youth group for 6th-8th graders. Kadimaniks are invited to events with our local Emek (Hudson Valley) Division--which includes Bronx, Orange, Putnam, Rockland, and Westchester counties and some of Connecticut--and the METNY Region--which includes Emek as well as NYC and Long Island. Plus, each summer, 7th and 8th graders can travel down the east and west coasts of North America with USY on Wheels. ( Learn more about summer trips.)

Bet Torah has a chapter of Kadima as part of our Youth Program. At Bet Torah, events are usually for 6th and 7th graders, since 8th graders are in TLC. Bet Torah Kadima events are open to all Jewish teens, not just Bet Torah congregants.
How do I sign up for Bet Torah's Kadima chapter?
Teens in 8th grade should sign up for youth group as part of TLC Registration .
