Yeshiva of Flatbush Does it Again!

In what has become a tradition, a group of some 50 students, faculty and parents from The Yeshiva of Flatbush Joel Braverman High School, led by Rabbi Naftali Besser,recentlyvisited ALEH’s Jerusalem Center.
The group first received a short orientation from the ALEH staff about the center, its goals and the children. Then they split up into small groups, joining the ALEH children to take part in creative activities relating to the season. One group planted flowers; another simulated wind and rain, and a third group shaped beautiful clouds with the children and then hung them in the classroom.
No matter which activity they joined, they immediately became a part of the group – playing, singing, and bringing much joy. The visit ended with a gathering of all ALEH children and visitors, where they all joined together in song, dance, and a celebration of love and warmth.
There is no doubt that the visit uplifted the students as well as ALEH’s children.
Watching the excitement of our children and hearing from the students how thankful they are for the opportunity to be part of such an inspiring experience says it all.
As one student told an ALEH staff member: “Interacting with these special children was a life changing experience that I will never forget!”
If your group or school would like to visit ALEH’s children when you are in Israel, contact email@example.com for more information.
