With the 2015–2016 school year kicking off, it’s easy to become overwhelmed, exhausted and want to seek an outlet from the endless pressures of daily life.

To help Jewish girls with that need for an outlet, Tidewater has a new and exciting program called Chill Zone.

A girls’ program taking place throughout the world, Chill Zone has successfully enhanced nearly 50 different Jewish communities. The ultimate goals of hosting this program in Tidewater are to bring Jewish girls within the community together to have fun and to grow in a meaningful way. This is accomplished by creating an atmosphere in which every girl feels special and feels a part of something great.

Chill Zone takes place in Dominion Tower every Thursday night, for one hour.

Chill Zone is completely subsidized by a greater organization, Oorah, which initially founded it and now works to see it thrive in various communities.

Each week generally consists of brief learning, pizza, dancing and different projects. Open to all Jewish girls in the area between the ages of 11 and 16, participants will be divided by age during the program.

Chill Zone is a great opportunity for girls to form special bonds with others of all different ages and interests. For more information, contact Jenny Lefcoe jlefcoe96@gmail.com.
