It’s the Ohave Shalom-YI of Pawtucket Youth Challenge!
These are the rules: Each Hebrew month the bulletin board will have a new list of
“Learning Challenges” and “Mitzvah Challenges.” If you complete one Learning
Challenge and one Mitzvah Challenge for your age group, you receive 50 points. You
may then redeem your points for a prize, or carry them over to the next month and save
up for a bigger prize. Rabbi Torczyner will keep track of points and give out the prizes.
Learning Challenges will include answering questions posed on the Shul’s Weekly
Announcements Sheet, studying with a sibling or parent on Shabbos afternoon, and
memorizing Mishnayos from Pirkei Avos. Mitzvah Challenges will include helping
prepare your house for Shabbos, coming to Shul, visiting people who are ill and
performing seasonal Mitzvos, like shoveling snow for elderly people or eating breakfast
in a Succah. All Challenges will be tailored for three specific age groups: Kindergarten
and under, 1st through 6th grade, and 7th grade and up.
Some of the program’s cost is being underwritten by an anonymous donation.
If you have ideas for this project, or if you wish to help defray the cost of the prizes,
please see Rabbi Torczyner.
