The program has consisted of recreational, social, educa- tional, musical, and religious Aufelgers activities listed as follows: Formal and informal Dancing, Dance Instruction, Ping-Pong, Basketball, Baseball, Voice Re- cording, Instrumental recording', Group Singing, Tishah B'ab, Movies, Chess, Checkers, Jig-saw p u z z 1 e s, Anagrams, Solitaire Bridge, Picnicking, Bus Rides, Sketching, Swimming, P i a n o, Guitar, Quizzes, Contests, Tour- naments Sightseeing, Boat Ride.

Newport News will be the host city. An orchestra dance will be held at the Hague Club on Aug. 14. Two more inter- city affairs will be held later with Norfolk and Portsmouth taking turns as the host city. In the planning stage now among the Directors of New- port News, Portsmouth and Norfolk is the inter-city train- ing course for those young men and women who have demonstrated capacities for leadership. Tentative plans have been made for seminars, workshops, and lectures con- ducted by outstanding author- iites in the recreational and group work field. Simultaneously with the ac- tivities above- outlined has been the slow but firm con- struction of an overall Jewish Youth Council to coordinate and enrich the programs of Norfolk's Jewish Youth groups. Knowledge of and interest in the Youth Division and its activities h a v e spread con- siderably during the past 3 months. Norfolk's youth as well as their parents have re- acted most favorably to these activities and are looking for- ward to an intensified Jewish Center Youth program in the fall and winter. Dates to watch for now are August 3rd (inter-city pro- gram); August 14th (orehes- trae dance) ; and a date to be set for a meeting of the Board of Directors of the Jewish Youth Council.
