May 2017 Youth Group News

Even though it feels like the year only just started, we’re already entering into our last month of H2I for the school year. April was a great month for our programming, with an ice cream seder preparing us for Passover, an exciting Yom Ha’Atzmaut program celebrating Israel’s independence, and a Friday Night H2I Family Shabbat dinner to end the month, made possible through a Microgrant from The Jewish Education Project, an agency committed to sparking and spreading innovations that expand the reach and increase the impact of Jewish education.

In May, we have a few final opportunities for fun together before taking our summer break! On May 7, all of our groups will be participating in Nerf Night—playing a number of games and athletic competition making use of Nerf launchers. The next weekend, though we are off for Mother’s Day on Sunday night, our 7-12 graders will be joining with their peers from across NY at METNY Regional Convention at Hudson Valley Resort. Our year will come to a close on Sunday, May 21 with our annual picnic and pizza party for our younger groups, and our Chapter Board elections and final dinner for our high schoolers.

We’re looking forward to a strong finish to what has been a great year for us at H2I!
