Summer Camp in Nikolayev.

One may think that after the last school bell rang for the last time the children would say buy to their school and forget it till September. But the students of the Nikolayev Ohr Menachem School did not hurry to do so.

Sentenced to wilderness. Jewish wisdom with rav Shlomo Willhelm.

Some say that a road to hell is covered with good deeds. The heroes of the today chapter of Torah, the Jewish scouts sent to the Land of Israel come back and say that Jews will not be able to conquer the people who live in that land.

Chassids explain that those scouts did what they did with holy motivation. Jews in the desert did not work, obtained food from heaven and had no need to wash their clothes. So they were focused on Torah and spiritual growth.

Talmud tells us a story by a wise an whose name was Raba bar bar Chana. The story tells that he was once shown the people of Israel who died in the… Читать дальше »

A step further.

We all go to Torah with confident steps. Every one goes with his own step and tempo. But the children from the Lugansk Beit Menachem school rapidly advance to the heights of knowledge and Torah. Every pupil summarizes the year that has passed. The firstformers finished learning the alphabet and advanced to the next form. The pupils of the 4th form got excellent marks and advanced to the next level.
