Title: That Crazy Month of Av: Powerful Program Opportunities For You
Date: January 23 at 1 pm eastern, 12 pm central, 11 am mountain, 10 am pacific
Trainers: Matt Abrams Gerber, Jodi Sperling and Myra Meskin
Target: Day Camp Staff
Description: When Tisha B’Av falls during the camp season, camps often struggle with how to commemorate the day. How can a day marked by sadness, fasting, and destruction appropriately be a part of a camp, and what should observance in camp look like? Learn about Tisha B’Av and how to create meaningful and educational programs for all ages. Did you know there’s another holiday in Av that makes for a great and fun camp program? The second half of the call will introduce Tu B’Av, the Jewish holiday of love, and we’ll brainstorm together to generate a list of Tu B’Av activities to implement this summer!
