NFTY-SOCAL Winter Kallah

Friday, January 18 - Monday, January 21, 2019

NFTY CWR & NFTY SOCAL are excited to present Winter Kallah at Camp JCA Shalom in Malibu, CA. Join us as we bring together NFTY CA, for the first time, in celebration of the power of community. The weekend will be filled to brim with NFTY fun!

Friday night programming will be hosted in collaboration with the NFTY SOCAL & NFTY CWR regional boards, along with teen leaders from both regions. On Saturday, NFTY CA, in partnership with URJ Camp Newman, URJ Sci-Tech West, URJ Sports West, and the Jewish Center for Justice will participate in the Los Angeles Women's March. Jewish Center for Justice will partner with teens to lead Women’s March prep on Friday evening, which may include but is not limited to poster making, and the historical and political context of the march. Saturday will culminate with participation in the Los Angeles Women’s March, free time upon arrival back to JCA Shalom, and Saturday night’s “Little FUN”. Sunday will be a full day of social and educational NFTY programming, ending in “BIG FUN.” Teens will depart from JCA Shalom on Monday, following closing circle.
