Parkland Survivors Join CTeen Weekend in New York

Rabbi Shaya Denburg, director of CTeen in Coral Springs, Fla., will bring a group to the convention for the first time this year. While he knew it was an important trip, it’s taken on added significance after the mass school shooting on Feb. 14 in which 17 people, most of them teens, were gunned down at a high school in nearby Parkland, Fla. Some of the teen delegates joining Denburg are students who survived the attack at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, while all the rest have many friends at the school.
