Join ECRUSY at Kadima Shabbaton in Toronto as we follow the clues to track down Noah and all the animals. This weekend will include exciting programs including making your very own comic book page, an overnight at the synagogue to spend even more time with your friends, and a fun USY-style shabbat complete with ruach (singing & dancing). See below for the flyer, a link to register, and all the details.

|Rooming||Kadima Shabbaton will include an overnight at Beth David Synagogue on Friday night. Please bring sleeping bags and pillows with you.|
|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 firstname.lastname@example.org|
