This year Shiva Assar B’Tammuz has been dedicated to help us all think about how we can do good for others, on a personal, camp, and national level. Here are some of the video clips that Chanichim have seen today.
Eidah Hey had some regular peulot today but we took pictures of them at "Moshevet Achim Gam Yachad", a peulah in which they drew life size self portraits and talked about the things that we all have in common and how we can work together to make the world a better place.
We took pictures of Eidah Aleph at a special peulah called "The Ripple Effect". Chanichim saw video clips (some of them are featured at the top of the page) about individuals who have made a difference and how it has affected them and the people they helped.
Eidah Bet saw the short movie "Validation" which is about a cheerful parking attendant who validates the customers themselves, delivering compliments about their appearances and the inner qualities behind them. After they saw the movie, the chanichim discussed it and talked about how it could apply to their lives.
We took pictures of Eidah Gimmel at "The Ripple Effect", a special peulah in which chanichim saw video clips about individuals who have made a difference in someone's life. There was discussion after each clip about how we can start to make a difference in the next three weeks.
Eidah Daled saw the movie "Above and Beyond" which is about five American pilots who started the Israeli Air Force and were instrumental in establishing the State of Israel.
