Dear WJC Teen Families,
We hope everyone is having a healthy, fun, relaxing, and peaceful summer. The fall is almost here and we wanted to share with you some exciting news and plans for this year’s program. Following a busy spring of teen activities, our Teen Program has expanded for 2022-23 in terms both of staff and of new and varied opportunities for your teens.
We are happy to announce that we have hired AJ Rose McCormick (they/them) as our Teen Advisor. AJ’s responsibilities include helping to administer the Teen Program and connecting with teens and families. As a teacher in our Religious School over the past year, AJ is already a familiar presence at WJC and very popular among our younger students. Experienced in working with teens and across a range of Jewish leadership activities, AJ can’t wait to get to know your teens. See their bio below!
We are also fortunate to have an Israeli Shinshin, a young Israeli working with Westchester youth this year, who will join the WJC teens on Tuesday evenings and share his enthusiasm for Israeli life and culture.
As in past years, our teen program will meet regularly on Tuesday evenings between 6:00 and 8:00pm, with dinner served from 6:00-6:30pm, as well as at monthly Sunday activities and outings.
September Teen events will include:
