Tween Leadership Third Meet – December 2nd

The focus of our December Tween Leaders meeting was all about doing good and feeling good! Because it was Chanukah, the tweens danced by the candle light, planned upcoming events, and then prepared challah – half of which they got to take home, the other half which they donated!
