RAC L'Taken Seminar in Washington DC
Head to our nation's capital to join hundreds of other Jewish teens at the Religious Action Center's L'Taken Social Justice Seminar. Explore a variety of public policy issues, discover the Jewish values surrounding these issues, and learn the skills of an effective advocate. All of this culminates in a trip to Capitol Hill where we lobby our Congressional leaders. This trip is an integral part of the Confirmation experience, but is also open to those not participating in Confirmation.

Fall Shabbaton and Winter Shabbaton
A Shabbaton is a retreat over Shabbat. These Shabbatonim are from Friday afternoon through Sunday afternoon. We will head out to the beautiful Berkshires for a meaningful Shabbat together as well as amazing teen-led programming and some fun activities. Etzim tuition covers ONE of the two Shabbatonim and provides discounts for the other one. Teens are encouraged to sign up for as many as they wish.
