A Grand Adventure

Tomorrow, I lose my daughter for a few days. She’s off with the rest of our synagogue’s confirmation class for the Religious Action Center’s L’Taken Social Justice Seminar (I guess this means according to Glenn Beck she’s equivalent to a radical muslim). This activity is an intensive four-day study kallah in Washington, DC that focuses on Jewish values and social justice. Reform congregations from across all the U.S. are participating in the event. The kids will get to intensely study various issues and then attempt to present their positions to their congresscritters, as well as touring the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum, participating in a Havdalah service at the Jefferson Memorial, and visiting Georgetown, the Smithsonian, and the White House. They are going to be busy — here’s a sample schedule.
