JKHA Students Stack up Brachos

For the past week, middle school students took part in an unusual kind of fundraiser. The first ever bracha-thon challenged students to raise brachot instead of money, encouraging them to think more about the brachot they make throughout the day. In a little more than a week sixth through eighth graders recorded 16,479 brachot that they recited throughout the day, as they watched the mercury in our bracha-meter rise daily. Whether it was students who committed to making 100 brachot a day, students who focused on the daily bracha, students who could be heard saying brachot loudly in the hallway, or students who chose to quietly commit to new brachot at home, there was something for everyone in the bracha-thon. This initiative was surely a “blessing” for JKHA students who were invigorated with a new passion to recognize Hashem all throughout their day.
