As the academic year comes to a close, our kids are getting ready for summer. Whether they plan to go off to camp, travel to Israel, participate in a service learning program away from home, or even stick around locally, this is a season filled with adventure, learning and transition. While they may physically leave your congregational building, the sense of community you have built with them all year long transitions with them. Here are some suggestions to help your congregation and youth professional team celebrate the many directions our teens’ Jewish journeys take them in the summer months and make your relationships with them even sweeter.
As youth professionals, our relationships with our young people transcend synagogue walls. One of the biggest joys of our jobs is getting to know our kids, seeing them grow up, and sharing their milestones. Summertime can be the best time to elevate your connection and remind your teens that they have a place in your community, no matter where they may be.
