- More Details
- If you are requesting roommates for chaperones or students we will do our best to accommodate those requests, however, we cannot guarantee all requests will be matched. Roommates will be assigned in the order that forms are received so be sure to turn everything in on time.
- You can also arrange roommates directly with other congregations (without our help) to guarantee rooming and lower costs. Please indicate the congregation you are partnering with on this form
- IMPORTANT: Please write any special needs for the room including early or late arrival dates etc. in this form.
- This form will also help you calculate estimated cost for your weekend, not including transportation costs. To learn more about program pricing visit the L’Taken cost page.
3. Group Travel Form

- More Details:
- Please schedule your group’s travel in accordance with the guidelines listed on the L’Taken transportation page. If you schedule your return train or flight earlier than the suggested times, you will have to schedule transportation on your own at additional cost and may forfeit lobbying visits on Capitol Hill.
- As a reminder, our program begins at 6:00 PM on Friday night and concludes at 2 PM on Monday. For more information about the L’Taken schedule, please look at our sample schedule.
4. Health and Safety Form
- Please distribute health and safety forms to each student from your congregation.
- More Details
- If your congregation has NFTY health forms on file for your students, feel free to make copies of these and turn them in. Completed forms can be emailed as a single attachment to Sara or Ben or mailed in a single batch to the RAC.
- Chaperones must bring the original copies of the Health and Safety forms to the seminar. Your chaperones are ultimately responsible for the health and well-being of your participants, and should keep these forms on their person until all participants have returned home following L’Taken.
We are looking forward to having your group in D.C., this winter! Please contact Sara or Ben with any questions about your forms.
