SUKKOT AT THE SILVERLAKE JCC
We had an awesome time running the SIJCC's Sukkot Family Day. We taught about the Jewish value of being welcoming by exploring immigration stories, including our own family's stories. Kids were inspired by the Tenement Museum's Your Story, Our Story online exhibit and created their own collection on the website. The activity ended with an "action fair" - we sent postcards to our representatives and made protest signs to hang up in the community sukkah.
SPACE ADVENTURE STRIKE CAMP
In January 2019 we co-hosted Strike Camp with our partners from the Silverlake Independent JCC. It was a whirlwind of a week - 5 days of outer space themed adventure & Gilboa fun, all in the midst (and in support) of the Los Angeles Teachers Union strike. See the full adventure HERE!
PJ LIBRARY HIKES JEWISH HOLIDAYS, AND MORE!
We've had so much fun spending time with PJ Library families in LA. We turned a Rosh Hashanah hike into a birthday party for the world, celebrated the life and legacy of Ruth Bader Ginsburg at Skirball, and ran all over Griffith Park tracking down clues in a fun Passover scavenger hunt!
IKAR HOLIDAYS + SHABBATON
We love spending time teaching about different holidays at IKAR. You can find us at Rosh Hashanah, Tu B'Shvat, Purim, and at the annual Shabbaton.
LIMMUD BAY AREA
Since 2012 we've been running Camp Limmud at Limmud Bay Area, a weekend-long Jewish learning conference in Sonoma. Our learning focus this year was the environment and what Jewish values, wisdom, and tradition tell us about how to care for our planet.
ARTS DAYS &
Throughout the year, Gilboa visits the Sholem community to lead a monthly art activity and educational programs in classes. Sholem kids and their friends are also invited to join a special camp session.
PASSOVER AT TEMPLE BETH AM
Temple Beth Am's Global Freedom Forum focused on learning about the experiences of refugees and better understanding today's refugee crisis. While the adults heard from speakers, Gilboa ran a parallel activity for the kids where we learned about the same topics through art and drama.
