KESHER Leadership Training Seminar 2009 at McGill University!
Now in its fifth year, LTS is designed to motivate, educate, and connect established and up-in-coming campus leaders.  LTS gives your college-age congregants the tools they need to build and strengthen their Reform Jewish communities on campus. Students will find many opportunities to gain leadership and personal development skills; there will be workshops on such topics as programming, outreach, Israel, social action, religion, culture, and more!  Apart from its formal components, LTS is a valuable networking opportunity and a great way to meet Reform Jewish students from all over North America.

We hope that your college-age congregants will join us March 6th-8th, 2009 in Montreal for LTS '09!
