Under the direction of Rabbi Mendy and Bunie Chazan, the Leeds Chapter of CTeenUK this week saw the Dare2Care programme swing into action.

Inspired by the theme of ‘Leadership’ the girls took part in an action-packed programme which included meeting with the emergency services to whom they gave cookies; local Cllr Dan Cohen and director of Leeds UJIA – Alexa Harris. They also found out all about ‘life on campus’ from the Leeds Students’ Shaliach Mrs Chana Sorah Danow who, together with her husband Rabbi Michoel, has just marked 10 years of service to the Leeds student community. They also visited with elderly members of the community who reside at Donisthorpe Hall.

It is envisaged that through being connected with leaders of their communities, the CTeen participants will see the importance and value in taking up communal leadership roles for themselves.

Interspersed with their important meetings were visits to Xscape, bowling, and the Climbing Lab. The girls also did a pottery making session and enjoyed a late-night barbecue.

To sum it up, Elana said “It has been a fantastic week, having fun and making new friends. I can’t wait for next year!”
