Young Israel And Lancaster Mikvah Sponsor Hershey Park Outing

Share Button

         This past Chol Hamoed, there were many venues for family outings, many sponsored by worthwhile charities. But only one featured the famous Hershey’s Chocolate World, as well as the entire adjoining Hershey Park amusement facility, that was rented out for Jewish children and their parents to enhance the Yom Tov spirit. The event was co-coordinated by the National Council of Young Israel and the Mikvah of Lancaster County. With Jewish music playing throughout the park, over 15,000 participants joined in a day of rides, concerts and games, and delicious food to be eaten in magnificent large sukkahs.

 



The very talented Ira Heller relaxed after two concerts in the sukkah with his lovely wife, Alysia.


 

 


The Levy family from Flatbush learned everything about making chocolate at the

Chocolate World Tour. Yummmm!

 

         The National Council used this special day to give to the community, inviting over 1,500 individuals from Chai Lifeline to attend at no charge. Rabbi Yehoshua Sauer, director of Synagogue Services at the National Council, stated, “This event is a needed respite to those families who have a child who has a chronic and life threatening illness. This day allows families to have a bonding experience, as families are torn apart as one parent has to care for the child in the hospital and one takes care of the rest of the family at home. Today everybody is able to be together.”

 



Yanky and Atara Reich brought their children, Yechial Moshe and Chana Leah, but ended up bringing home a new pet monkey who they immediately named “Yoli.”

         One place that really allowed them to be together was at the simchas bais ha’shoava, where a live band played and all the participants joined in singing and dancing.

 

         The Lancaster Mikvah not only is used by the local community but by the many tourists who come to visit the beautiful Amish country.

 


Yehuda, Tzvi, Sara, Dovid, and little Binyomin were very grateful that their parents,

Akiva and Malkie Schwartz, brought them to the park.

How they were going to fit the Taz in the car was another story.

Yom Tov is about spending time with your family. And while for some families the big once-in-a-lifetime experience is great, for others something low key is the way to go.

A fascinating glimpse into the rich complexity of medieval Jewish life and its contemporary relevance had intriguingly emerged.

Dear Dr. Yael:

My heart is breaking; my husband’s friend has gotten divorced. While this type of situation is always sad, here I do believe it could have been avoided.

Despite being one of the fastest-growing Jewish communities in the U.S. – the estimated Jewish population is 70-80,000 – Las Vegas has long been overlooked by much of the Torah world.

She was followed by the shadows of the Six Million, by the ever so subtle awareness of their vanished presence.

Pesach is so liberating (if you excuse the expression). It’s the only time I can eat anywhere in the house, guilt free! Matzah in bed!

Now all the pain, fear and struggle were over and they were home. Yuli was safe and free, a hero returned to his land and people.

While it would seem from his question that he is being chuzpadik and dismissive, I wonder if its possible, if just maybe, he is a struggling, confused neshama who actually wants to come back to the fold.

I agree with the letter writer that a shadchan should respectfully and graciously accept a negative response to a shidduch offer.

Alternative assessments are an extremely important part of understanding what students know beyond the scope of tests and quizzes.
