YOUTH & TEENS

Teen Connect is the BBYO type experience made just for grade 7 and 8 students offering social and meaningful experiences that will serve as a gateway to continued involvement in Jewish life. Teen Connect offers teens a variety of experiences to help bridge the gap between middle school and high school. The purpose is to provide middle school students with a positive experience in which they can get together with camp, school, and synagogue friends, as well as meet new friends. Teen Connect allows middle school students to begin experiencing the privileges and obligations of being a member of the Jewish and general communities. A heavy focus is on the social aspect of programing, allowing for connections to be made which in turn will foster a stronger Jewish future. Teen Connect is a pipeline program that leads directly into BBYO.

Jewish Calendar 101 September - December 2022 | Elul - Tevet 5782-5783* * Holidays begin at sundown on the evening before and conclude at sundown on the noted day.

High Holidays September 26-October 18 | 1-23 Tishrei 5783

This holiday is also known as the Ten Days of Awe, where first we celebrate Rosh HaShanah (September 26-27 | 1-2 Tishrei) – the head of the new year – and greet each other: Shana Tova Umetuka (Have a good and sweet year). It is customary to bake round challah, as a metaphor of the cycle of life, and dip pieces in honey. Ten days later, we observe Yom Kippur (October 5 | 10 Tishrei) – the Day of Atonement – a day of spiritual cleansing where we fast and attend synagogue for an entire day of solemn prayer. Between these two dates, there are 10 days where Jews are called to reflect on their shortcomings and transgressions; a period of introspection. During these days it is customary to go to a body of water (preferably with fish), symbolically cast our sins into the water, and leave our past shortcomings behind us, thereby starting the new year with a clean slate. This ritual is called Tashlich.

Sukkot

October 10-16 | 15-21 Tishrei

Named after the booths or huts (sukkot in Hebrew) where Jews are supposed to dwell during this week-long celebration. According to rabbinic tradition, these flimsy sukkot represent the huts in which the Israelites dwelt during their 40 years of wandering in the desert after escaping from slavery in Egypt. The festival of Sukkot is one of the three great pilgrimage festivals of the Jewish year.

Shmini Atzeret / Simchat Torah October 17-18 | 22-23 Tishrei

Shmini Atzeret celebrates the last day of Sukkot, while Simchat Torah observes the finishing of the reading of the Torah – the Five Books of Moses – and the immediate beginning of the reading from the first book called Bereshit (Genesis). In this manner, the annual cycle of Torah readings and studying remains unbroken. During this holiday, we dance and joyfully parade with the Torah scrolls in the synagogue.

Chanukah

December 19-26 | 25 Kislev-2 Tevet

During Chanukah, we celebrate Juddah and the Maccabees defeating the Greco-Syrian army in 165 BCE. When the Maccabees regained control of the Temple they only found enough oil to light the menorah for one day, yet it miraculously lasted for eight days. This is why we now light a Chanukiyah (a candelabra with nine branches instead of seven) for eight days. Customs include exchanging gifts, playing dreidel (spin tops), winning or giving gelt (chocolate coins), and eating fried foods such as latkes (potato pancakes), sufganiyot (donuts), and any other fried foods. It is also referred to as the festival of light during the shortest days of the year and the winter solstice.

FREE FOR Aqua Fitness MEMBERS We offer a large selection of aqua fitness classes FREE to our members. The general public may pay a drop-in fee (see page 9) to attend the class. Experience a fitness class in the pool! Water has a thousand times more resistance to that of air so it can provide an awesome workout. It is suitable for everyone as all movements use the body’s own resistance. Our aqua fitness classes are 50 minutes in length and are led by a team of highlyqualified instructors. The components of all fitness classes include: a warm up, cardiovascular conditioning, muscle and core strengthening, and stretching. There is an average of 16 aqua fitness classes that run weekly. They vary in intensity and fitness level so as to meet the needs and abilities of all our adult and older members. Aqua Zen A shallow water aquafit experience that encourages peace and vitality through a variety of movements that inspires harmony within the mind, body and spirit. This holistic, wellness-based class focuses on mindfulness and range of motion while improving balance and body awareness. Find your zen while receiving all of the tranquility that the water has to offer. As You Choose Participants are free to choose to work out in the deep water wearing a flotation belt or in the shallow water with their feet on the floor. With careful attention and preparation, the instructor is able to teach to all participants.

Shallow Water Workout Activate your aqua urge for exercise! This class is held in the pool’s shallow end in chest-deep water so your feet are always touching the floor. Shallow water workouts improve agility, coordination, flexibility and cardiovascular endurance. Equipment may be used to develop strength and balance. Tether Deep Water Workout Aquafit enthusiasts will benefit from this fun cardiovascular workout in the deep water! There is a strong focus on core stability while performing deep water moves which will result in increased intensity. Participants will find themselves tethered to a lane rope with a bungee cord attached to a belt. Great for beginner to advanced!

Easy Going This class is geared toward adults who are looking for a gentler approach to fitness. The warm up and strength training are done while seated. Because weight-bearing exercise is so important, walking, posture (against a wall) and balance (holding on to a dance bar) will be done standing. Keep Going This class is for adults with a chronic condition who are looking for a little more challenge, but still want a low impact class that is easy on the joints. The entire class is done standing and offers various formats to keep it interesting. Get Going Features walking, seated and standing movement for the cardio component. Strength, balance and flexibility training are done seated or standing behind a chair. Join us for a functional fitness class to help with the various activities of everyday living. Tuesdays and Fridays feature extra focus on balance and strength training.

Gentle Chair Yoga* This class is perfect for participants looking for a softer approach. Enjoy moving in and out of poses slowly with a focus on breathing, strengthening, and stretching exercises.
