(AJNews) – Bezrat Hashem, the Edmonton Jewish community is in for a pleasant surprise this summer. From June 26th to July 17th, Edmonton will be graced by 11 Yeshivah Boys who will dedicate their time to both learning and teaching any member of the Jewish community who wishes to participate.
They will be hosting BBQs every Tuesday evening at Chabad, starting at 7:00 PM (June 27, July 4, and 11). Additionally, there will be a choir event at the Jewish Drop-in Centre on Tuesday, June 27th at 12:30 PM and another one at Canterbury Court on Wednesday, July 5th from 1:30 to 2:15 PM. They will also organize the Mishmor learning program with donuts at B.I, weekly community soccer games, and various evening and learning opportunities throughout the week for people of all ages.
“This is a wonderful opportunity for the Edmonton Jewish community,” says Edmonton Chabad Rabbi Ari Drelich. “The Yeshivah boys will be visiting people’s homes for informal learning sessions and seniors centres to bring music and song to those who are less fortunate.
“In addition to their activities in Edmonton, the Yeshivah boys will spend one weekend at Chabad of Saskatoon and another weekend at Chabad of Kelowna to help strengthen Yiddishkeit in those remote communities.
“This initiative is sponsored by Chabad of Edmonton, with generous support from both our wonderful community and many generous donors from the United States.”
Anyone interested in participating in any of the learning programs (free of charge) is welcome to call Rabbi Ari at 780-993-1818 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
“We are all eagerly anticipating this unique program, which is being held for the first time ever, and it is sure to bring much delight to our community.” adds Rabbi Ari. “Find us on Instagram #JewishEdmontonSummer.”
