SUPER SATURDAY

ESCAPE THE ROOM CHALLENGE –
Saturday, November 18th is super Saturday! First on the calendar is an Escape the Room with our high school teens and we are inviting members from a non-Jewish youth group to join us. This is the first event of an ongoing focus on social justice and our teen board is incredibly excited for this opportunity! For safety reasons, a separate email will be sent with further information regarding date, time, location, and RSVP information. We highly encourage anyone who is in 9th-12th grade to attend and learn what it’s like growing up in a different Religious culture! Please email director@jewccy.org for more information.

PARENTS NIGHT OUT –
Saturday, November 18th continues super Saturday! From 5:30-8:30pm JewCCY is hosting Parent’s Night Out! Have you been wanting a date with your significant other? Can’t find a low-cost babysitter? Looking to support the Jewish youth community? Look no further! Email director@jewccy.org about how to get your 3rd-6th grader signed up! We kindly ask a small donation for the event – no child will be turned away (even if they are younger or older than 3rd-6th grade). Further information will be sent closer to the date with all the information you need including (but not limited to) RSVP, location, time, and suggested donation amount.
