The chabura goes through an array of topics, primarily focussing on Parshas Hashavua, Tisha Bi’av and Shemonah Esrei. The material is thought provoking and engaging, and enhances each kid’s understanding of the Parsha, Tisha B’av and davening.
Each member of the chabura was asked the following question: “What aspect of high school/8th grade are you most looking forward to?
These were their responses:
Kalman- “graduating middle school.”
Zach- “the excitement of going to a new school.”
Avraham – “getting closer to becoming a dentist.”
Reuven- “the new rebbiem and learning opportunities.”
