“Youth are not vessels to be filled, but rather fires to be lit.”
This axiom from the Roman philosopher Plutarch is the punchline of this 45 second video clip from a Ted Talk by Peter Benson.
Summer is the perfect time to help our youth find ways to light these fires. Theater, art, dance and sports are just a few of the things that can help our youth find their passions in life, and summer camps and programs enable them to explore things they really care about.
On Friday night June 23, we will welcome a group of children from a Theater company called SPARK. These children will augment our worship with songs from Fiddler on the Roof. Join us for an amazing evening inspired by the passions of these talented students followed by a special oneg in their honor.
Please save the date and bring friends. This will be a very special event.
