CANCELED: Purim Carnival
In light of the evolving situation with the coronavirus and out of an abundance of caution, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the Purim Carnival.
This year, the proceeds of the Purim Carnival were to be split between the BJ Teens Scholarship Fund and Everytown for Gun Safety.
The BJ Teens Scholarship Fund makes it possible for teens in our program to participate in our domestic and international service and learning trips, that some would not have the funds to participate in otherwise. The decision to raise money for Everytown for Gun Safety is part of a year of learning and advocacy related to gun violence and gun control, an issue-focus chosen by the BJ teens themselves.
Those who have purchased tickets will be contacted directly. We hope that you will consider donating the cost of your admission to the BJ Teens Scholarship Fund and the fundraiser for Everytown for Gun Safety.
If you have any questions, please contact Laura Schultze.
Note: The decision to cancel the carnival was based on the unique activities which require a high level of touching shared objects and surfaces. Currently, our plan is for all other programs, services, and classes to take place as usual. Click here to read our more detailed coronavirus update for families.
