Calendar of Events
In Holon, Netanya, Beit Shemesh and all over the country Makom BaLev teens have a variety of activities to make the Holiday of Lights even brighter.
On the first day of Chanukah, the OU Israel Center and Machon HaMikdash treated a group of children to a very special Chanukah event. First they explained the meaning of Chanukah with an interactive presentation. Then they guided the children in actually rebuilding the Beit HaMikdash—stone by stone.
About 800 runners represented Team Yachad Yerushalayim in “Running in Color” in Tel Aviv.
Celebrate Chanukah with Yachad Israel. Light candles, play dreidel games, decorate sufganiyot.
In addition to all the fun times during Chanukah the OU Israel Center is offering shiurim every morning.
If you’re an Israeli soldier with limited exposure to Jewish history, to Torah, and to religious Jews, it may sometimes be difficult to understand what you’re fighting for and who you represent. Which is why OU Israel’s Mashiv HaRuach program brought a group of 250 soldiers to spend the day in Gush Etzion.
On Purim night, OU Israel’s Lev Yehudi program hosted an evening of grogger making, megillah reading and entertainment. Children came in costume and made noisemakers to drown out the name “Haman” as they listened to the scroll being read. Batman, Superman, Princesses, Butterflies, Minnie Mouse, Cats, Soldiers and more (and their parents) were in attendance.
During Operation Cast Lead many soldiers saw, or found, God in the many miracles they witnessed, and sought protection from a force greater than themselves. Requests for tefillin poured in to the IDF Rabbinate. The OU, through their Mashiv HaRuach program helped fill the need. On January 18, 2009 200 pair of tefillin were delivered to soldiers serving in Israel’s Operation Cast Lead.
