PHOTOS: Pirchei Agudas Yisroel of Chicago Day of Tefilla, Learning and Fun
With Chicago schools closed on President’s Day (February 15th), due to an in-service day for all of the city’s Rabbeim, Pirchei Agudas Yisroel of Chicago organized a special day-long program of tefilla, learning and fun! At three locations throughout the city, over 250 Pirchim participated in the tefilla b’tzibbur, and enjoyed a nourishing breakfast and then a supervised hour of shtark learning. Afterwards, they spent an exciting few hours at Enchanted Castle, a local indoors amusement park.
Nochi Stein, Director of Pirchei Agudas Yisroel of Chicago, thanked the three supervising community volunteers, Rabbis Dubovick, Weisswasser and Kadin, and acknowledged program sponsors Rabbi and Mrs. Makhlouf Suissa and Rabbi and Mrs. Yosef Knopf. He said, “Pirchei Agudas Yisroel is completely committed to helping our local Pirchim grow as bnei Torah. We are very pleased – as are the Pirchim’s parents – that we could create a program that fills a day like President’s Day, when there is no school, with so much meaningful tefilla and learning.”
