SKA attendees to this year’s NCSY JUMP (Jewish Unity Mentoring Program) Conference – Rachel Bodek, Kelly Friedman, Kayla Frenkel, Avigail Goldberg, Atara Greenfield, Sarah Leiderman, Hannah Lifschutz, Riki Posner, Ayelet Rosman, and Arielle Yarmish – had an exciting few days of training on Sunday, November 10, through Tuesday, November 12, in Connecticut.
The NCSY National Leadership Program empowers high school students across the country to develop leadership skills and implement programs in their schools and local communities. The girls participated in “hack-a-thon” style sessions where they created a project called “Stop, Drop, and Chop” in the hope of helping people understand the meaning behind mitzvos.
Thanks go to Rebecca Lipsky for chaperoning, as well as to faculty advisor Rebecca Aryeh for all her help. Good luck to the JUMP Team on their project!
