An Awesome Day in Brooklyn

 

The Torah Champs experienced the best of Jewish Brooklyn. The full day trip was packed with hands on experiential learning, delicious food, and thrilling amusement rides. Torah Champs, with over 100 participants: 4th and 5th grade boys and girls attending Yeshivat Noam, Yavneh Academy, RYNJ, BPY, Breuers and Chabad Palisades Academy, creates community around meaningful Torah learning.  The trip was designed to celebrate the accomplishments of the children who have learned, in depth and in detail, the first 23 Mitzvot of the Taryag Mitzvot, the foundational Mitzvot which apply to every Jew.

 

We started our day with a guided tour of the Jewish Children's Museum. The participants were immersed in the creative hands-on exhibits which brought the learning to life. The students were privileged to meet Rabbi Zalman Glick, the editor in chief of the Yahadus book which they have been learning from. He answered the students questions and he gave them the opportunity to display their deep and broad knowledge of the material. As a gift, he gave all the participants a beautiful Siddur with an easy to understand translation.
