Shabbat The majority of our program occurs over Shabbat. No matter how much or how little exposure your teen has had with a traditional Shabbat experience in the past, our convention provides a special and unique opportunity to enjoy and participate in the enhancing of Shabbat through interactive, age-appropriate prayer, spirited song and cheering, and fun educational programs. On Shabbat, we refrain from the following: traveling, writing, handling of money, playing radios or musical instruments, and using telephones. We ask that you have your child leave their cell phone at home. If your child uses their phone during our programs or on Shabbat, it will be taken away until the end of convention.


Questions Should you have any questions before the start of convention you can contact Max Marmer, Regional Youth Director, in the Regional Office at (416) 667-1717 Ext. 106 or by e-mail at marmer@uscj.org
