It’s hard to believe that we’ve already entered the last month of the H2I year! We had a great April, celebrating Yom Ha’Atzmaut with a program that introduced us to different aspects of Israeli culture, and our younger groups also took part in an “Anything Goes” Olympics. Our seventh-twelfth graders just wrapped up METNY 7th Grade Experience and Regional Convention, which brought together hundreds of teens from the NY Metropolitan area at the Hudson Valley Resort & Spa.
We can’t wait to finish the year strong with our May programming! On May 3, we’ll be celebrating Lag B’Omer with a trip to Queens Archery to work on our bow-and-arrow skills. Then, after a week off for Mother’s Day, we’ll wrap up the year on May 17 with our annual end-of-year picnic at Hillcrest JC. We’ll also be hosting our Chapter Elections this month to elect next year’s H2I leaders!
