North Shore Teen Initiative (NSTI) in partnership with Cohen Hillel Academy (CHA) invite parents and teens to an evening of laughter and learning through role-playing with the talented cast of Urban Improv. This free event takes place Thursday, October 7, 2010, 7 – 9 P.M. at Cohen Hillel Academy at 6 Community Road, Marblehead, MA.
Urban Improv’s mission is to challenge young people to meet the major issues in their lives head-on. By participating in role-playing with parents, teens develop problem-solving, cooperation, communication and leadership skills. Urban Improv uses structured theater improvisation to teach conflict resolution, decision-making, impulse control and violence prevention.
“We want to get our teens and parents thinking critically about why communication within families is important and how it can be achieved,” said NSTI Executive Director Adam Smith.
This program is based on best practices research and has been proven effective in improving communication and reducing youth violence. Professional actors/educators lead interactive workshops that offer students and parents the opportunity to explore their own solutions to challenging, real-life situations.
If you’ve never experienced the power of Urban Improv, here is your opportunity! www.urbanimprov.org

Addressed to Emma Gamble and Olivia Huth, on the occasion of their B’not Mitzvah.

And, Emma, you have mentioned the ancient custom of “Ushpizin,” inviting special guests into our sukkah, beginning with our religious ancestors and then moving on to others who are heroes in your life. So, what’s left to talk about? I recently received a brochure from a communal organization in New York City called CLAL. “Clal” is the Hebrew word for “inclusive,” and it is their mission to teach to the Jewish world as well as the outside world about the plurality and the diversity of opinions that are a part of our religious heritage. In their own words, they are a “think tank, and a leadership training institute, as well as a resource center that makes Jewish wisdom accessible to a wider audience.” It is their hope “to build bridges … Continue reading
Shabbat Chol haMoed Sukkot 5771 The soul searching is now complete. The gates are closed and the book has been sealed. It is as if we have synced ourselves with God and we hope that the process has run smoother than it does when syncing our phones with our computers. I pray that I will not receive an error message! Now that Sukkot has arrived, we are invited to “step out of ourselves,” as Gary Rosenblatt writes in his column for Jewish World Review, step out of the security that was provided by our homes and our sanctuaries, and to “step into” the fragility of another kind, the instability of what it means to reconnect with nature under a roof made of branches and flimsy cloth held up by shaky posts. OK, the metal girders are more supportive than the PVC piping I used in previous years, as well as the two by fours that became warped by Sukkots past!
