*NEW* Shabbat Showdown!
a Rel/ed IGB 2012 project created by Jake Wasserman
Hey USY, this year is the year of Rel/Ed. It’s finally time that the idea of Religion/Education leaves the convention and comes to your home! This year, my IGB project is to do the Shabbat Showdown- a fun, interactive, and competitive way to get all of USY involved in Religion/Education. Every other week, a video will be sent out with questions about that week’s Torah portion. Everyone in USY, no matter what region, from the time the video is sent out that Friday afternoon, can send their answers in to firstname.lastname@example.org to help accumulate points for their region! The region with the most answers sent in by IC will win scholarship prizes for their region for the annual Heschel Kinnus. Send in those answers!
