Kolbo

April 15 - 17, 2016
5:00 pm - 12:00 pm

Congregation BJBE

"Kolbo" means "everything is in it" in Hebrew, and Kolbo really does have everything. We welcome our newest freshman class (current 8th graders) and say goodbye to our graduating seniors. NFTY will lead all of Congregation BJBE in Shabbat services with the clergy team, and our own programs and workshops all weekend. We'll dig deep into issues of social justice, sing until we lose our voices, and meet the friends we'll have for the rest of our lives.

Teens stay with BJBE families vetted by the congregation and the regional staff with at least two other teens.

Please note that this year, elections of the 2016-2017 Regional Board will be held at a separate elections event on April 10th. Check out our calendar for information on how to register for that as well!!
