NFTY-CAR Leadership Training and Elections

Saturday, April 9, 2016 and Sunday, April 10, 2016 
2:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Temple Beth-El, Northbrook, IL

Join us for one or both days of NFTY's choose-your-own adventure leadership weekend. On Saturday, Jewish teens from across the Chicagoland Area are invited to a one-day leadership summit open to any self-identifying Jewish teen leader or aspiring leader. Through a keynote address, innovative workshops led by experts, and intentional networking sessions, teen leaders will leave with a balance of high level leadership theory and practical applications for their day-to-day leadership.

On Sunday, join us for the election of the 2016-2017 regional board, and make sure we have leaders that represent your ideas and goals for NFTY.

Please note that there is not an overnight component to this event - teens come only from 2-7pm each day.
