Rak Noar (grades 7-8) offers a meaningful relationship with Judaism through broad based programming of social, educational, and social action activities. Through Rak Noar, pre-teens can find their identities as Jews and experience a sense of belonging. Rak Noar teens meet for monthly programs and outings, usually starting with lunch and youth-group-style mixers and community building activities. Rak Noar also participates in a regional JYG (Junior Youth Group) retreat each spring, held at our regional camp, GUCI. For more information please contact advisor Michael Weiss at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Here are the upcoming Rak Noar programs for the 2017 Winter/Spring Semester:
