Recently, we boarded our charter bus and were accompanied by Mrs. Nissel, our Aim Bayit and Chessed Coordinator and Madrichot to go on a special trip to Seeach Sod, an amazing organization that provides an educational framework for religious children with special needs. They have various programs that are geared to enhance the quality of life for these children, and at the same time help them integrate themselves into mainstream society.
We were all blown away by the beautiful facility and by the unique care and attention that is given towards religious children with special needs.
We were taken around by Rebbetzin Bergstein, who shared her inspiring story with us. She struggled to find any sort of facility like this for her own daughter about 20 years ago, which helped the girls appreciate what is now available for these children.
All of us were then split up into groups and did an art project with the various classrooms they were assigned to. The children loved the energy and special RUACH that us Sharfman’s students brought with them…
The art projects were transformed into a lot of singing and dancing!!! You wouldn’t believe how many smiles were brought to the faces of these children. This was the perfect chessed opportunity to help us focus that much more on our growth throughout the year. We thank the school for arranging this special educational and chessed-related trip and look forward to going on more and more tiyulim and special trips throughout the year!
