Purim 2021

Megillah Reading, Fun, AND MORE – Thursday, February 25

Are you musical? We will not have our regular Purim Band this year, but we’d love a few teens to perform a musical number. Please text/email Loen if you’d like to perform.

Zoomazing Family Fun! – Sunday, February 28, 9:00 a.m.

We need teens in 8th-12th grade to help run our activities! You can either attend a planning event, or work one-on-one with Loen to plan a game. If none of the games or activities listed on the sign up appeal to you, let us know and we’ll try to plan something new. Teens in 7th grade are invited to volunteer as assistants to support the activities. Volunteer for one shift or all three, depending on if you want to enjoy the zoomazing fun yourself.

Celebration for WJCS Guests – Sunday, February 28, 11:30 a.m.

This year, we will be recording a Zoom version of our usual program for WJCS’ Partners in Caring Havorah, which our friends at different residential homes will enjoy on their own schedule. Teens in 8th-12th grade are asked to sign up to participate in the “table read” Zoom play and dance party.

Community service credit will be awarded.

Youth Shabbat – March 19 – 20

We are excited for another wonderful, fun-filled Youth Shabbat, this year travel-themed and on Zoom!

Yom Hashoah Book Club – Wednesday, April 7

Join Lead Teen Educator and fellow Bet Torah teens (open to TLC and 7th graders) as we delve deeper into Holocaust learning and the themes of responsibility and forgiveness, through a discussion of Simon Wiesenthal’s The Sunflower.


All TLC programming is remote until March 2021.

RSVP and Protocol for In-Person Programs

In the interest of our mutual responsibility and partnership in caring for the health and safety of our families and community, each TLC family will:

  1. Submit Same-Day Health Questionnaire between one hour to 15 minutes before the program. (Form must be submitted by an adult, not by the teen.)
  2. If this is your family’s first in-person Kulanu or TLC program: Complete a One-Time Health Attestation (one per family, per year).

  3. Teens are expected to follow our Kulanu/TLC Health Protocols, including required face masks, social distancing, and no eating, as well as drop off and health screening procedures. Families must communicate with Loen immediately if any teen has had potential exposure or has been asked to isolate or quarantine (see details.)

Arrival Procedures

  • Drive up to the curb and wait for a staff member.
  • Wait in the car until a staff member confirms that you have completed Questionnaire. Teens can leave the car and enter the building only after confirmation.
  • If teens are driving themselves, they should park, and then walk to the front entrance. Wait outside until a staff member/volunteer has confirmed you have completed the screening.
  • Please do not arrive late.  (If you must arrive late, wait in the car and call Loen’s cell.)
