L’Taken Social Justice Seminar


Shaping the Future for Our Next Generation

Are you ready to change the world? RAC’s L’Taken Seminar in Washington DC is designed to both expose you to a variety of public policy issues and explore the Jewish values that inform advocacy around them.

During the weekend, you will gain the knowledge and tools to write a compelling, persuasive, and passionate speech on a topic of your choice to present when you visit the offices of our MA Senators and Representatives on the final day of the program. Hill visits with Congress are a unique experience and can have a significant impact on the course of legislation. After meeting with our students, Members of Congress have chosen to co-sponsor, offer amendments to and vote for pieces of legislation that participants discussed.

This trip isn’t all work, though! There’s plenty of time to play as we visit the Smithsonian, tour the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum and sample the vibrancy of Georgetown and other D.C. neighborhoods!

We want to make this trip a reality to all teens who are interested in joining us. Between available scholarship funds and options for payment plans, we can get the job done.

Registration opens on October 24th.
