Upcoming youth events at Dor Tikvah


 


4/22/17 | Shabbat Shebang

A while ago a few of Rabbi Davies’s students approached him about coming over on Shabbat afternoon. What started out as an exam study session morphed into an hour of food, fun, and quite a bit of Torah discussion. It was so good that we decided to make it official. Join us for snacks and schmooz, For 5th grade and up at the Rabbi’s house!

Teen summer celebration 5/28/17

It's time to say goodbye... 

TYLT and group leaders got together for a meal by the Hirsch's to celebrate the end of the school year. After an amazing lunch, the group leaders went to work on their teamwork under pressure at "Escape in 60" and see if they can escape before the doomed ship ends up in Davy Jones' Locker... And just almost escaped on time!
