Middle School students have been busy learning about and preparing for the Yomim Noraim. During their Halacha classes, boys and girls have learned about the additional Tefilot, the mitzvot of Teshuva and Shofar, and what can and can’t be done on Yom Kippur. MS girls had a Simanim seder during Navi class, and the boys practiced blowing a Shofar. On Wednesday, OCA students had the privilege of hearing words of inspiration from Rabbi Duvy Rubin, Rav of Kehillas Ohr Yisrael. Rabbi Rubin spoke about the power of Tefila, using stories about Rav Shimshon Pincus, the late Rav of Ofakim, to illustrate that Tefila is real and we should take advantage of the dialogue we can have with Hakadosh Baruch Hu.
