“Rob, is that your son in the Congregation Beth Emeth Rosh Hashanah greeting video?” a friend asked. Sure enough. There he was.
“Levi, how did you get in the Beth Emeth video?” I asked.
“Oh, I have a few friends in CBEYG (Congregation Beth Emeth Youth Group), so I joined. Is that ok?”
“As I told you last year when you joined USY, you may join any and all Jewish youth groups,” I replied. “And, since you’re in all these groups, let your friends in Mifgash, Torah High, NCSY, USY, CBEYG, and JSU know:
1. We have a group of teenagers visiting from Eshkol next week, and we will be celebrating with a community-wide bonfire for teens on Saturday night, October 22, at the Niskayuna Fire House.
2. We have a teen mission to Israel scheduled for February 15-26, with subsidies and scholarships available.”
Levi has been thinking of studying engineering, like his mother. Personally, I think that he might have some aptitude for my line of work.
