FIND YOUR Light
A Fire Circle For Middle School Youth

GATHERING AROUND A FIRE...
Is an ancient practice our ancestors have passed down to us, as a way of sharing wisdom, telling stories, and finding light and guidance in the mystery of our times. Give your teen the gift of mentorship and community to support them in navigating their transition from childhood to adulthood during COVID-19 — perfect as a companion or alternative to b’nei mitzvah study!
