Get Ready for LLTI!

NFTY-SAR, we can’t wait to welcome you to LLTI this weekend! Here are some important things to know about as you prepare for the weekend:

Networks and Electives
New for this year, there will be several opportunities for participants to choose leadership electives that aren’t limited to their network/position. Also new, there will be a “network” for General Leadership, designed for those who are not a President or Vice President of their TYG. You will receive information about the electives being offered when you arrive on Friday.

Network Packets
All Network Resource Packets will be available electronically at the conclusion of the weekend. You do not need to print anything to bring with you.

Ruach SARnanza
Each TYG will have an opportunity to introduce their TYG at LLTI during a special event we call Ruach SARnanza, on Saturday evening. During this time all the members of your TYG will have the opportunity perform a 2-3 minute sketch, dance number, or any other type of appropriate performance. Please keep each sketch appropriate, without explicit language, inappropriate innuendos or anything else not in accordance with NFTY’s Brit Kehillah. You will have some time during the weekend to prepare your act. We encourage you to use props, music, or anything else to help boost your presentation. Wear your TYG shirts or other spirit items! If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask any Regional Board member!

Nametag Lanyards
We are excited to offer NEW NFTY-SAR lanyards which will be available to purchase for $1 at registration. If you are interested in purchasing a lanyard, please try to have a one-dollar bill ready to go! For those that choose not to purchase a lanyard, yarn will be available.

Dress Code
The dress code for the entire weekend is CAMP CASUAL. Jeans/shorts and t-shirts are appropriate for the entire weekend. WE STRONGLY RECOMMEND YOU WEAR CLOSE-TOED SHOES THE ENTIRE WEEKEND. Flip-flops and sandals can lead to injuries! Pack a sweatshirt and/or jacket for night time, as it may be chilly at night. Please check www.weather.com (use the zip code 30528) to check the anticipated weather. We will be outside for much of the weekend so please dress appropriately for the weather. Definitely pack rain gear!

Tzedakah Item
As LLTI, we will be collecting new and gently used fiction books for 4th and 5th graders for Camp Jenny (www.campjenny.org), the NFTY-SAR and NFTY-STR Mitzvah Corps program. Our goal is to send at least one book home with every child this year. We are also always collecting gift cards for WalMart or Amazon (in any dollar amount) to help offset our Camp Jenny program expenses. We will be collecting books and gift cards on Friday at check-in. In advance, thank you!
