Parent and children learning event

6 08 2012

When the Hochhausers moved to Ariel from Beit Shemesh a few years ago, Elie took it upon himself to organize Shabbat afternoon learning for parents and kids. (הורים וילדים). After learning is completed Elie asks the kids questions from the parsha and gives out treats and tickets. Every couple of months Elie organizes a Friday morning event; there is some learning, snacks, an activity and the kids can “cash in” their tickets for prizes.

This past Friday was one of those days. We went to a Ma’ayan (little pool) near Har Bracha. There were over 40 people, a mix of Anglos and Israeli’s who participated. The morning started off with a short play, yours truly managed to stumble through my one line, some singing and then it was off to the pool.

The Play

Once the kids, and some parents, were through splashing and playing in the water, it was time for snacks and prizes.

One of the things that we really liked when checking out Ariel is that it was, and still is, a growing city. There is still a lot of room for new projects and ideas. All it takes is someone

to come and take the initiative to get something started, whether it’s Shabbat afternoon learning or a women’s basketball game. It’s easy to make an impact and help the community grow.

Kol Hakavod to Elie for organizing the learning every Shabbat, may we continue to have more and more people every Shabbat
