Shaare Tefillah Parent-Child Learning with Yeshivat He’atid

This past Saturday night, Shaare Tefillah had its first Parent-Child Learning event of the season. Nearly 50 children, mostly from pre-K through third grade, attended and learned so beautifully with their parents or grandparents! Shaare Tefillah invited Rabbi Gralla, the rosh yeshiva of Yeshivat He’Atid, to speak. Rabbi Gralla told a fascinating story about Rabbi Riskin that emphasized the importance of connecting and learning from all human beings, no matter what their appearance on the outside. As Pirkei Avot teaches: Eizehu chacham? Ha’lomed mikol adam.

Clown Training at Rockleigh Nursing Home to Celebrate Bar Mitzvah

Eitan Hiller has a pretty amazing hobby. He dresses up as a clown and tries to get seniors to smile. Working with Areyvut, an organization that trains “Mitzvah Clowns,” Hiller has been coming to the Jewish Home at Rockleigh for quite some time.

When his bar mitzvah rolled around, Hiller wanted to do something special. He invited his fellow seventh graders at Yeshivat Noam to join a crash course on clowning at the nursing home.

Dozens of his friends showed up and the entire skilled nursing facility was abuzz with the legions of clowns roaming the halls, replete with balloon animals, red noses and floppy bouquets.

For more information on mitzvah clowning, contact Areyvut at [email protected], and to organize a mitzvah project or volunteer at the Jewish Home contact [email protected]
