Tomorrow should be interesting

Most of tomorrow I'm going to be at one of my program's events outside. I'm not looking forward to the heat and humidity (when do I ever?) but the actual event should be great. We have two summer intern programs, one for at-risk Jewish high school students, the other for Jewish college students, and the college kids act as mentors to the high school kids. Tomorrow they are working together on a Mitavah project, which is helping senior citizens living in one of the Jewish Federation houses plant a small memorial garden. The seniors will share stories about the person they are memorializing, and will also receive Shabbat baskets. I think it's going to be great and hope that some of the media I contacted show up. With all the bad press about kids, it would be nice to see something good about some.

One thing about this job is that I'm learning quite a bit about Jewish traditions. It's very interesting.
