Welcome to Sababa, our peer-led 6th-8th grade youth group! We have a 10 member board this year who are working hard to create fantastic events. We'll have roughly 8 events throughout the year! Stay tuned for more information and invitations!
Thank you to all who came to our High Holy Day services and dinner in the Sukkah! Limos and Latkes was AMAZING!! Beth El represented 50% of all the participants, needing 4 limos! We raced around Berkeley taking pictures and collecting Channukah-themed items before heading to Temple Beth Abraham for a delicious dinner. Our retreat at Camp Newman was fabulous- we got to hang out at camp and see what NFTY was all about. There was a b'nei mitzvah there complete with party favors, a DJ, and lights!
Please mark your calendars for the Sababa Gala Volunteer and Movie Night on Saturday, February 7 from 6:00-10:00 pm. We will help out at the Gala before having a popcorn and movie night!
