Young Judaea Tucson hosts spring convention

Young Judaea, the national Zionist youth group of Hadassah, will hold its West Merchav Spring Convention for grades 3-8 at the Triangle Y Camp in Oracle, Ariz., April 1-3.

Hosted by the Tucson Young Judaea youth group, it will feature a chocolate Seder, games, hiking, Shabbat services, songs and cheers, and kosher meals.

Children do not have to be members of Young Judaea “or have ever attended any of our meetings” to participate, says Hilary Lyons, Young Judaea Tucson administrator, who adds that the convention will include Jewish youth from all over the western region including Phoenix, Denver and San Diego.

The cost is $150; registration is due March 25. Contact Lyons at 275-7240 or education@chaverim.net. Young Judaea is sponsored locally by Congregations Bet Shalom, Chaverim and Or Chadash.
