YOUTH DEPARTMENT NOTICES
SHABBAT GROUPS: In this week's parsha,
Parshat Beshalach, the Jews are leaving Egypt, trying
to escape Pharaoh and the Egyptians. While they are on their way out, they
leave in "song" singing the "Shira".
This "Shira" is more commonly referred to
today as Az Yashir, which
we say everyday in davening. This Shabbat in Shul is the "Shabbat of Song" for multiple
reasons. Besides for the fact that the Shira is in
this parsha, the Shul
welcomes a very special guest in Edon Pinchot, a
world renowned teenage singer who will be joining us for Shabbat and gracing us
with a concert on Motzei Shabbat. This will
definitely be a Shabbat you don't want to miss! See you all there!
BNEI AKIVA THIS SHABBAT: Bnei Akiva
takes places this Shabbat in the Youth Wing at YIWH

weeks, don't hesitate to send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
TU B’SHEVAT TISH: Now that we have entered the month
of Shevat, Tu B'Shevat is
right around the corner. In this time of celebration for the new fruit, what
better way to portray our happiness than to have a Tish
full of singing, Divrei Torahs and Cholent and Kugel! If you are a
boy or girl in grades 4-8, come'on down Friday night,
February 6th, at 8:00 pm at the home of Yael & Dovi Greenberger, 638
Willow Road. You don't want to miss this! And
don't forget, there will be a ton of Tu B'Shevat fruit! See you all there!
YOUTH LEADER EVENT: Every Shabbat during the year, our
youth leaders put their best foot forward to make our youth program the success
that it is and will continue to be. As a little token of recognition and
appreciation to our leaders, we are taking them for bowling and pizza on
Sunday, February 8th. Drop-off is at 5PM in Woodmere Lanes and
