Eilat Tiyul and more

After a post-Sukkot stretch of weeks of learning, the past two weeks have been ones of varied and interesting experiences at Midreshet AMIT. We began the week exploring special needs in the Jewish community, with a visit to Shalva, an educational complex for the developmentally disabled in Yerushalayim, and a presentation from Rav Goldstein and Tamar Kinderlehrer, who both have special needs children in their family.

The next day, we hit the road for a day of experiential learning. In the theme of Mitzvot with which women have a special relationship, we Davened at Kever Rochel, learned about ancient bread-making and made sour dough Challah in Rosh Tzurim, heard from a Yoetzet Halacha and had a tour and shiur in the Mikveh of Alon Shevut.

Closing out the week with three days of learning, we welcomed the IST program last Tuesday. IST is a program for students from Australia who are spending two months in Israel at the end of their tenth grade. This group of nine young women from Sydney are joining us in classes for about two weeks, as they get a taste of the "Sem-life". Our partnership with World Bnei Akiva is what brought them to AMIT.

This week began with three solid days of learning, but we hit the road again early Wednesday morning for a fun filled tiyul to Eilat. It is hard to believe that a quarter of the year is over. Sunday brings the beginning of the second quarter with renewed spirit.
