We had a large SALTY attendance at NFTY-GER New Member Kallah in September, bringing 19 SALTYites, and now we want to continue the trend and we are working hard to make sure all of our SALTYites can enjoy the greatness of NFTY-GER. New Member was a great fun for all! You can see what some GERites had to say about New Member, as well as our very own SALTY President Haley Peckman, freshman Jake Cameron, and myself, at this link: nfty.rjblog.org/2011/11/07/nfty-ger-lit-team-corner-1/
Go back in time with NFTY-GER on November 26th! Just a reminder, NFTY-GER Homecoming is on November 26th at Temple Emanu El in Edison, NJ. Homecoming is an awesome event for all members of NFTY-GER and NFTY-GER Alum who are Freshman in College. The event is a themed dance, this year’s theme is prehistoric times. The Dance will last from 7:00pm-10:00pm. This event costs $20.00 or $15.00 with two cans of food to donate, at the door.
Remember no NFTYites are allowed to drive themselves to this event and this rule also applies for GER Alumni. SALTY will be putting together a carpool, so if any adults would be able to drive, please respond to this email.
It’s Time For Another Kallah! Winter Kallah is the third NFTY-GER event of the year. This year it will held at Camp Harlam in Kunkletown, PA from the morning of Monday December 26th until the afternoon of Thursday December 29th. Join NFTY-GER for 3 days of fun, learning, social action, prayer, and creating life-long friendships. This is the longest NFTY-GER event of the year and my personal favorite! Early bird Registration ends December 12th and regular registration ends December 15th, this event fills up quickly and once the bus is full that’s it. To register please contact Jenna Wyatt for online sign-up info at at firstname.lastname@example.org.
