September Update

Hey OV! I hope everyone has had a great start to their school year. Personally, Sukkot was the best part of this month. I loved seeing all of the decorated sukkahs, especially with homemade art. This past weekend, I attended ‘S’mores in the Sukkah’, which was a TYG (temple youth group) event in Indianapolis for IFTY and JFTY. These are Indianapolis Hebrew Congregation’s middle and high school youth groups. While the age gap is large between these two groups, the event was very united. I got to know a lot of the middle schoolers better, helping me relate their interests to regional OV events… and I am so excited for the first regional event of the year on October 2nd! The entire region of OV will be joining together for an online Havdalah. Make sure to contact your youth group advisor, as individual cities will also be hosting an in-person event on October 2nd. I encourage you all to sign up, and I look forward to having a great event!
