Rabbi Eli Broner, Youth Director


Dear Beth Jacob Youth Children,

It was so exciting to see many of you at our drive through ice cream party. I have already heard from a few of you about the postcards that you sent to our seniors to bring a smile to their faces, what a mitzvah. Below we have assembled some fun activities and learning for you at home. I know you would rather be in groups but in the meantime enjoy these materials and we will see you soon. 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.

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 9 entries for a chance to win a $20 Amazon Gift card and $2.25 towards either a Munchies, Pizza World, or Jeffs gift card. 

Thank you to those who submitted their completed missions this past week. The winner of our raffle for a $20 Amazon gift card is Avi Broner. Looking forward to seeing who will win next week.

We hope to see you at our Family Pre-Shabbat Kumsitz this Friday from 4:30pm-5:00pm.

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

Wishing you a fun and meaningful Shabbat,

Rabbi Broner and Rabbi Muchnick
