Adar is a great month anywhere, but at Sharfman’s it’s really AWESOME! Just as we finished our first class of the morning, Rabbi Sharfman came in and told us that a bus was waiting for us downstairs. We got on the bus without any idea of where we were headed or why. We just knew that it was Adar and this was Sharfman’s.
Soon the bus dropped us off at the Malcha Mall. There, our Mechanchet divided us up into small teams, each led by a Madricha, Rakezet or Tutor. We were told that we were on a Treasure Hunt and the objects of our search were our Shana Betters. Sounds easy, doesn’t it?
Well, it’s amazing what a change of outfit, a borrowed sheitel or hat and a pair of sunglasses can do to change a person’s appearance.
Of course, there are always some people who nobody notices, like the customer in the restaurant, or the shopping Mom 🙂
In a way, the game was a practical lesson in what we learned in our Megillah class! If you want to see what’s really going on, don’t get stuck on outside appearances.
Thanks to Sharfman’s, our faculty and the Shana Betters for a fantastic time 🙂
