Our club wanted to build on our previously successful annual “World Wide Wrap” by working with our USY chapter and USY region to create a major tefillin event. We also coordinated the wrap with our first “Build-A-Pair” program.
The events were a big success, with over 400 people attending the events. Most rewarding was the involvement of our youth programs.
World Wide Wrap-
We had our wrap during the Sunday morning services. Services were run by the USY’ers and included some fun wrap-related programs (songs/skits). Men’s Club members and other adult attendees then went to a separate room for breakfast and a discussion of our “twin” in Spain.
Developed as a weekday afternoon parent/child program with our shul’s Religious School (“daled” students- 6th grade). Flyers were sent home advertising this as a parent/child project. Dinner was provided for attendees (students and their parents).
