It’s #MeetTheFellowsMonday! Over the course of the year, the #JTIBoston #PeerLeadershipFellows will say hello and share a bit about themselves and the work they’re doing to help our community be a more connected and inclusive place for #JewishBostonTeens.
November 18, 2019: Meet Leah, a sophomore at Gann Academy. She is involved in the school’s literary magazine, newspaper, and more. She enjoys hiking, writing, reading, spending time with her friends, and playing on her school’s soccer and softball teams. Leah is a member of Temple Beth Shalom and loves participating in her temple’s youth group!
“I became a #JTIBoston #PeerLeadershipFellow because I have always felt connected to and at home in my Jewish community, and I would love to help other #JewishBostonTeens feel the same way.” – Leah Koritz, Metrowest Cohort 3
The #JTIBoston #PeerLeadershipFellows were all over the map with their BBYO & NFTY NE friends! Sounds like BBYO Fall Convention and URJ Youth Northeast Homecoming were awesome! Looking for more? Visit JewishBostonTeens.com to see how you can get connected!
