All teens and their parents are welcome to join Rav Steven, Rabba Sara Hurwitz, and Menachem at the shul to discuss plans for this year's Teen Tefila. A number of individuals have shared their perspectives and we would like to open up the conversation to create more of a communal forum to hear from and share with one another on this important topic. Please spread the word. We look forward to seeing you then.
