Elinor Gabay, the Homes Activities Director always comes up with
the most innovative ways to motivate the girls to learn and grow emotionally
and spiritually. This season she developed yet another clever and challenging
contest to bring the girls to a higher level of cultivating their minds and
enriching their souls.
Anyone visiting the girls at the Home on a Shabbat afternoon
will find them relaxing on couches and lounge chairs, seated in circles – in
groups of all ages, studying the weekly Torah portion. Wow..very impressive, is
the first thought you'd have. And, rightfully so. But, knowing kids, there
needs to be something waiting for them
besides this quest for knowledge. At the onset of Elinor's thrust to
engage the girls in this Torah contest, the goal was to interest them in each
week's portion by offering prizes to the first, second and third place winners.
Actually, every participant is a winner.
Gifts includes necklaces, bracelets,
small prayerbooks, and toiletry baskets.
