JDCC - LA Teen Havurah

On February 19th, we went miniature golfing despite the heavy rains. We all played games until the rain finally stopped, we got our clubs and balls and started to play on the first round. As Erick was walking down down the stairs, he slipped on the first step and went down 7 steps on his rear end causing shock to his upper back. The Teens, Rebecca Schoor, Tall Dagan, Jacob Shamberg, and Matt Simmons went with him to the hospital to have x-rays taken. They all handled it cooly!

The next event is March 23rd where they will watch the Mr. CSUN (California State University, Northridge) Pageant.

We will be sending questionnaires to the young members to see what kind of activities they will like to see in the near future. If you have any comments or suggestions regarding the Havurah program, please drop us a line!
