We’re bringing together youth groups from every major world religion to do the things we love to do.  We’ll laugh, we’ll sing, we’ll play, we’ll eat, and we’ll serve by preparing backpacks for Centro Legal de la Raza full of survival supplies which will be distributed to immigrants released from detention centers oftentimes with nothing more than what fits in their pockets.   

Here is a list of items most needed:

Backpacks or travel luggage
Hygiene kits
New underwear and socks
Shoes women’s sizes 7-8
A more detailed list of donation items can be found here.
CRuSTY Katan (1st-5th Grade) is the name for our elementary school Youth Group. We provide social programs that help to build relationships between peers and foster Jewish identity. These youth group experiences give our kids the opportunity to continue to build their cohort of friends as they journey through life towards b'nai mitvah and beyond. 

CRuSTY Jr. (6th-8th Grade) is Congregation Rodef Sholom's Junior Youth Group. We aim to provide our members with engaging and memorable activities that build Jewish identity and life long relationships.
