Planting for our Future

We had another exciting week at Midreshet! Last Thursday, on Tu' B'shvat, we joined the JNF and planted trees in the Ben Shemen forest. After we planted the trees, Bracha spoke to us about the special tefilah that is said on Tu b'shvat. When we plant, it is for the future just as this year we are all 'planting' seeds for our future. Afterwards we were treated by Midreshet to 'Green's' delicious muffins. Yum!

Saturday night we joined fifteen other seminaries as we competed in the annual Kedma choir competition.  We worked really hard and won third place! Well done Midreshet!!

Tuesday night we had the privilege of hearing Lavi Greenspan speak. Lavi became blind at the age of 26, yet his emunah in Hashem is stronger than ever. It was a very emotional evening and we were very inspired by him.
After the speech, back in the dorms our madrichot treated us all to a sushi making party. It was amazing fun and yummy too.

On Wednesday Naomie Bouaziz, Vanessa Shnay, Megan Wasserstrom, Oona Welman, Sarah Fakiro and Malka Russell were invited to a private meeting with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and many WIZO presidents from all over America. Naomie shared their experience with us: "We were invited to this special event because we volunteer every Wednesday at Wizo centers in Jerusalem. After Binyamin Netanyahu spoke to us, his advisor Dr. J. Schachter answered our questions. We were then invited to a party with hundreds of Wizo presidents from all over the world. We spoke to many women and heard how dedicated they are to Israel and to what they do. Overall, it was an amazing and inspiring day and evening that we will never forget.  We feel so lucky to have been given the opportunity to go."

Unfortunately, Rav Eitan Mayer's father passed away suddenly this past week on Motsei Shabbat. Many Midreshet girls attended the funeral. Many of us also visited the shiva house and left feeling inspired by the stories we heard about Ben Mayer z"l.
