Girls Israel Volunteer Experience

A gutten erev shabbos, NCSY GIVErs and Parents!

We cannot wait for tomorrow! See below for reminders that were sent out earlier this week and get ready for what is sure to be an amazingly uplifting shabbos for everyone!

Airport Pickups:
Unless you have contacted Rachel with your flight information, it is fair to assume that we will not be picking you up from the airport. If you did contact us with appropriate flight information, make sure to have Alexa’s phone number with you (404-783-2596) in case of emergency or if you’re running late.

Transportation To and From Reunion:

There will be bussing from Teaneck, both to and from reunion. The bus will pick up from Mayanot High school at 1:30 PM. The same drop off points will be used on Motzai Shabbos, with the plan to leave Woodmere at approximately 10:30 pm. The fee for the bus will be $20 roundtrip.

Anyone who did not sign up for bussing will be responsible to find their own transportation both TO and FROM the reunion. We recommend carpooling with other girls in your neighborhood.

Friday Drop Off:
We will be meeting at the shul on Friday afternoon between 1:30-2:30 PM for check-in and light refreshments. GIVErs will then receive housing information, go to hosts to get ready, and then meet back at the shul for candle lighting, etc. The shul’s address is 409 Edward Avenue, Woodmere, NY, 11598.
 (NOTE: Pickup on Motzai Shabbos will also be at the shul.)


We will be spending shabbos in the Woodmere community. Please abide by the NCSY GIVE dress code for the entirety of the weekend.


Motzai Shabbos:

Motzai Shabbos we will have a wonderful Melave Malka, full of music, dancing, and of course, chessed! Please bring a toy to donate to our channukah toy drive! 


Gifts for Shabbos Hosts: 
We will be providing gifts for those families hosting girls for the weekend. Therefore, do not feel obligated to bring your own gift.

Reunion Fee:

If you have not yet paid your reunion fee by clicking this link, please bring a check with you to the reunion for $80. The check should be made out to NCSY and will be collected at registration. (If you are taking the Teaneck bus, you can include the $20 bus fee in the same check as the reunion fee.)


Reunion Schedule:
Below you will find the schedule for the weekend. Times are subject to change.


As always, be in touch with any questions. Email is the best way to reach me. If you have any changes or complications that arise regarding your attendance, please be in touch. 


 Wishing you a wonderful week ahead and will be in touch later in the week with final pre-reunion updates and details!
