The 2016-2017 Season marks the second year of incorporating monthly themes into our programming. The themes are selected by the Program Planning Committee and the Youth RE Committee, and are shared across both age groups for continuity within families and throughout the entire membership. It is our hope that the themes help us select and create more specific and appropriate programs, and also provide us with a lens through which we focus our view of the topics we explore throughout the year.
