Learn 4 Summer

Yonit Krebs

Hey, I'm Yonit Krebs. I'm a 15 year old sophomore at St. Louis Park High School--a suburb of Minneapolis, Minnesota.

NSCY has been a big part of my life ever since I started public high school after attending a Jewish day school for 9 years. I eagerly await the next shabbaton, dinner and learn, or Jewish Student Union meeting. I am now Vice-President of my school's JSU and am actively involved in Minneapolis' NCSY chapter.

With your help, I will be spending this summer on an awesome NCSY summer program, JOLT (Jewish Overseas Leadership Training). JOLT begins with a week in Poland, learning about the Jewish past in Europe, including a visit to Auschwitz. After Poland, JOLT participants head to Austria and run a camp for unaffiliated Jewish children. Then JOLT travels to Israel, where we will spend Tisha B'av and learn more about what it means to be a Jewish leader.

Through JOLT, I hope to further my connection to Israel and to learn Jewish leadership skills to bring back with me to Minnesota.

For this reason, I have chosen to learn the book of Shoftim/Judges, which deals with the concept of leadership--the central theme and mission of JOLT.

Thank you for your help!
