Over the past few weeks, the tzedek tzevet has been running amazing peulot for our high schoolers, and the Madatz program has begun with lots of fun (and also glitter).

This coming Monday July 6th we formally kick off Techno Tavor!

Our first Kvutsah times will be full of games and lovely reconnecting with our friends.

Help Create the Look of "Generations"
This summer’s theme is Generations.

In the spirit of connecting the range of generations across the Tavor community, the design for the cover of this summer’s tochnit (educational programming book) will be a collective, intergenerational collage. The collage will be made up of designs submitted by you , the Tavor community, that answer the question, 

“What do ‘Generations’ mean to you?”

All are welcome to submit, regardless of “artistic ability,” and creations from children and adults of all ages are welcome.

Please submit your own design, a design with your kvutzah (age group), and/or a design that you create in collaboration with someone from another generation. Then, encourage people from different generations to do so as well! 

To submit, or if you have any questions, email your design to frieda.greenthal@gmail.com with the subject “Tochnit Design,” and please include your age/generation.

I look forward to receiving your submissions and promoting intergenerational connections within our community in the form of collaborative art!
