Areyvut in the Community
Daniel Rothner, Founder & Director, and Michal Greenbaum, Programming Coordinator, met with Yeshivat Noam 5th grade girls and 6th grade boys and their parents on February 25th in Bergen County, NJ. This introductory session was the first of three sessions Areyvut will be leading. This workshop provided background to parents and students about Mitzvah Projects and discussed the remaining two programs, which include a Bnai Mitzvah fair as well as Individual Bnai Mitzvah Consultations. Cheli Arussy, a 16 year old student and second place winner in the 2006 Areyvut Bnai Mitzvah Essay Contest shared the impact her Mitzvah Project had on her. The students are eager to begin planning their Mitzvah Projects.
