Ma'ase Olam is offering two amazing Masa programs for you in Israel!
Ma'ase Olam is revolutionary in its outlook on the need for balance in service work and learning. It is a fresh perspective and a fresh experience for young adults who want to see the real Israel, not the bubble that most programmers try to show you. Ma'ase Olam-NIF is a 10-month service learning program for American and Israeli college graduates. Participants will volunteer in formal and informal educational frameworks together with being placed in groups of 3 or more New Israel Fund (NIF)-approved social change non-profit organization in Israel’s social and geographic periphery communities. Staff from SHATIL, NIF’s empowerment and training center, will coordinate and supervise service work. The application process for post college candidates is done jointly by NIF and Ma'ase Olam staff.
Israel Teaching Fellows: Do you want to be a part of an amazing and important new program run by Ma'ase Olam, MASA Israel and the Ministry of Education in the beautiful and central city of Rehovot, Israel? Ma'ase Olam–Israel Teaching Fellows (ITF) combines components of the Ma'ase Olam program (a joint 10-month service-learning program for American and Israeli young adults) with the exciting challenges of teaching English in Rehovot schools. Ma'ase Olam-ITF takes place in Rehovot, an academic research hub in central Israel (12 miles south of Tel Aviv) and home to the famous Weizmann Institute and Faculty of Agriculture. With a population of 114,000, Rehovot offers a diverse mixture of students and faculty, new immigrants and disadvantaged communities, making it an ideal site for meaningful social justice work.

Join the debate at Next@19th on a hot topic - Gender Identity as it relates to the dynamic of families and culture. Based on a current case, Is it healthy or fair to keep the gender of your child a secret, either from the child itself or from society? Or is it a way of giving the child the opportunity to define his or herself? Share your thoughts - don't miss this great opportunity to explore gender and cultural boundaries and expectations!
Next@19th's New Sanhedrin is a modern system of argument based on the principles of the original Sanhedrin of the early Rabbis. Programs address today's most challenging issues such as circumcision, tattoos and body modification, gender and LGBT issues. All of South Florida's diverse community is invited to come and vote with their feet, moving from side to side as the arguments progress.

The hottest Mommy & Me is Splat Too!, a hands on, hands in sensory experience with colors for kids ages 12 months and older (and their moms, dads or favorite caregivers) at Lehrman Community Day School. Squishy and creative and run by Lehrman's experienced Mommy & Me teacher, Miss Jennifer, the class is a six week adventure through the world of colors. Children explore the five senses through play, getting down and gooey, making life a little messy through touch, taste, vision, sound and just fun. Moms and their kids enjoy activities, stories and nutritious snacks. Splat Too! was opened after the first Splat! series filled up and created demand for a second session. Splat Too! begins June 30 and runs Thursdays at 10:15. For costs and more information come visit the school website lehrmanschool.org or call Erica Albert, 305-866-2771, ext. 25.

With the start of a new year approaching, Aventura Turnberry Jewish Center is hosting a myriad of events and services this fall. Rabbi Jonathan Berkun expressed his enthusiasm for the Jewish new year, exclaiming: “As Rosh Hashanah approaches, there is a feeling of electricity in the air. Everyone is eagerly anticipating the sound of the shofar (ram’s horn) and the wake-up call it inspires, namely that it is time to lead better, more purposeful and more meaningful lives. I am looking forward to personally greeting the congregation and to ushering in this season of new beginnings together.”
FRIDAY NIGHT LIVE KICK-OFF – AUGUST 26 The kick-off of the popular Friday Night Live service will take place on August 26, 6:30-8:30pm. This lively service, with Rabbi Berkun on guitar and Cantor Muchnick on keyboard, is the perfect way to begin Shabbat. There will be a complimentary dinner and children’s activities following services.
HIGH HOLIDAYS On September 24, ATJC will usher in the High Holy Days with a moving Slichot service at 7:45pm featuring the ATJC Professional choir.
Erev Rosh Hashana services begin at 7:00pm on September 28. Services resume September 29 from 8:00am-12:00pm with family services at 10:00am, and on September 30 at 8:00am. Tashlich and Friday Night Live services including an outdoor picnic dinner, will take place at 5:00pm at the Waterways Marina once again this year.
The celebration of the High Holy Days continues with Kol Nidre services October 7 at 6:45pm. On October 8 Yom Kippur services are from 9:00am-2:30pm with family services from 10:00am-11:30am and Nehila from 6:00pm-6:45pm.
SUKKOT & MORE The start of Sukkot will be marked with an Extreme Sukkah Makeover for children and families October 9 from 9:00am-12:00pm. On October 14, Friday Night Live services will be followed by Supper in the Sukkah at 6:30pm. On October 18, the ATJC Brotherhood and Ya Ya Sisterhood will host Sushi and Sake in the Sukkah at the home of Rabbis Berkun. All of these wonderful fall events will be wrapped up on October 20 with Shmini Atzeret services at 8:30am and a Simchat Torah celebration starting at 6:30pm.
