NFTY-CAR Winter Kallah

Friday, January 17, 5:00 PM - Sunday, January 19, 11:30 AM, 2020
Temple Jeremiah, Northfield, IL

Join NFTY Chicago and almost 100 teens from around town to say “Hineinu!,” “Here We Are!,” during an unforgettable weekend experience! Friends, new and old, come together to bring a deep focus to ourselves, our community, and the difference we can make in the world when we unite to achieve our goals.

Highlights of the weekend include:

  • Enjoy all that Chicago has to offer, while spending time at Millennium Park on the ice rink, sipping hot chocolate, or exploring the park
  • Celebrate Shabbat with local Jewish communities
  • Explore Chicago through a new lens as we discover all the places that we make Judaism thrive
  • Engage in social action initiatives around civic engagement and learn how teens under 18 can make a difference in an election process at home and abroad
  • Dance and sing during song session and Israeli dancing
  • Spend time with interfaith peers
  • Have a great weekend with teens from around Chicagoland

Housing for Winter Kallah is generously provided by families from the Temple Jeremiah community. They will open their homes to our NFTY teens for sleepovers of small groups. Teens will have room to roll out their sleeping bags, access to bathrooms and showers, breakfast, and transportation provided by the Jeremiah community.
