How much are our Kiruv efforts worth, and how many fruits does it bear?

Rosh Chodesh Av is the Yhorzeit of Ahron Hacohen, and symbolizes his characteristics:

הוי מתלמידיו של אהרן הכהן, אוהב שלום ורודף שלום, אוהב את הבריות ומקרבן לתורה.

Here is an interesting  excerpt from the  Midrash Tanna Devei Eliyahu, whose author is

אליהו הנביא זכור לטוב.

“Ahron Hacohen knew of himself that were he to delve singularly in Torah,   he would  aspire to the greatest realms, but instead he trudged from one door to the next and teach Jews to read Shema, daven and learn Torah” (13;3)

And not just Ahron HaKohen, but anybody following his ways….and will merit…(ibid 13;4)

Your support has helped us reach many Kiruv achievements. Here are some of them:

Moshav BarGiyora –the 24th Moshav

Moshav Bargiyora is coming alive with a new Shiur for it’s youth. It’s close  proximity to Beitar Illit  means that the wonderful Madrich comes from Beitar Illit.

Two boys come from the neighboring Kibutz Tzur Hadassa, a Moshav completely alien to Torah Umitzvot. Already in the first Shiur one boy asked many provoking questions in Emunah, and left the Shiur with a  fresh spiritual tranquility. We have awarded him with a colorful book dealing with these questions   to relieve  his uncertainties.

Luzit Ladies Shiur

Yesterday I had the profound pleasure of visiting the Luzit ladies Shiur. This is a Shiur I closed for a five month period in order to reopen it with a different Rebbitzen, who would draw a younger crowed.

The host of the Shiur this week was Mrs. Daddon, wife to former Mayor of the whole Mate Yehuda region. Fifteen ladies, whose interest in Torah a month ago was nil, were praising the Rebbitzen to me with flying colors. I spoke shortly about Ahavat and Sinat Chinam, and that a women can have Hashem in mind all day, from cooking to jogging. A real Nachat Ruach to see.

Project “Surfing the internet Responsibly”

This project is intended to imbue the teens with a healthier  standard of moral behavior, by getting them to willingly filter their smartphones from immoral or violent context. The “Netspark” company, with its dynamic filtering solutions, has entrusted us with the application and removal abilities of the filtering  app, thus making it impossible for these fine  boys  to accidently indulge in indecent programs. Thirty five boys are presently geared to the Netspark Smartphone filter  ,for which I praise my Madrichim  for their close companionship and trust with the  boys. We are aiming to have a snowball effect on the next batch of boys in the upcoming months.(2 pictures)

 

Let us all together pray that Hashem bestow upon all of us to feel His Presence in the Bet Hamikdash, and bring us all together with Mashiach Tziskenu Amen.

In the meantime we aim to add Moshavim and Shiurim to save Am Yisroel from the many perils in our surroundings.
