Event Info Letter

Dear All,

Winter Shabbaton is next week and we want to make sure you have all the information you need.

In an effort to keep everything running smoothly, we ask that you will arrive at Green Road Synagogue* (2437 S Green Rd, Beachwood) on time. The Bus will be leaving Thursday afternoon at 4:15 p.m. so please arrive no later than 4:00 p.m. to allow us enough time to get everyone registered and set. The bus will return Sunday at approximately 1:30 p.m.

Lodging information:

Hosting homes. Please make sure your teens are mindful that many hosting homes will be kosher for Pesach, and that they should not bring any chometz (leavened foods) into the homes.

Skiing activity will be held at Mount Holly Ski Resort (there is an alternative option to skiing).

We strongly advise NOT to bring valuable possessions.

Feel free to use this packing list:

Ø  Shabbat appropriate outfits

Ø  Pjs

Ø  Casual + Shabbat shoes

Ø  Casual outfits including ski appropriate attire

Ø  Warm Jacket

Ø  Toiletries

Ø  Snacks (All meals will be provided by NCSY)

We would also like to stress that NCSY has a zero tolerance policy for substance abuse.  We take precautions to preempt and at events have a very high staff to student ratio to supervise and punish any misconduct, as students’ safety is our highest priority.  Should rules be violated, students are suspended from the event and parents are required to provide transportation home. 

As always, our staff is available to answer any question or concern you might have.

Looking forward to seeing all of you Thursday!
