CAJE plans Yom Limmud day of learning for teens

Marc Elliot

Central Agency for Jewish Education (CAJE) will hold Yom Limmud: A Day of Discovery for Jewish Teens on Sunday, Nov. 4. The program is for students in grades 8-12, who can join their friends for two workshops of their choosing followed by an inspirational message from keynote speaker Marc Elliot.  Teens will choose from 22 workshops, including: YouTube and the Jewish You; Tasty Treats and Israeli Eats; Views on How Jews Choose; Hold Your Tongue; Jews & Comic Books, Heroes & Villains; Signing the Back of Your Driver’s License; Work Hard & Party Hard Krav Maga.   Presenters consist of community professionals, rabbis and youth directors.

Elliot is a captivating speaker who will share his experience of being different and his lessons on tolerance. He has struggled with Tourette’s syndrome and other serious health challenges and has learned how to triumph over his handicaps, helping individuals around the world find their own path to tolerance for themselves and others.

Yom Limmud attracts over 200 Jewish teenagers from throughout the Jewish Community and is sponsored by CAJE, local BBYO, JSU, NCSY, NFTY & USY chapters, and the St. Louis Jewish Educators & Youth Professionals Councils. The program will be held at Congregation Shaare Emeth, 11645 Ladue Road, and is free with advanced registration or $6 at the door.  Complete workshop choices and registration forms can be found at www.cajestl.org or register online at http://goo.gl/c67eL.
