On Tisha B’av Sunday, Aug 14, 2016 from 12:45PM to 3:45PM for children in Kindergarten thru 5th Grade, Ohr Torah will host its fifth annual Tisha B’av Youth Program! We will start with lunch followed by a special video presentation for children from the Chafetz Chaim Heritage Foundation and continue with Arts & Crafts Projects for Shabbat, Rosh Hashana and Shalosh Regalim! In addition, our children will be taught interactively the “inyana d’yoma”, the topics of the day. This event is geared to be educational and informative while keeping our children very busy so that their parents get a much needed break on this long fast. As I am anticipating a large turnout, please let me know by email the names and ages of the children that will be in attendance. May we be Zocheh to have next years program in Yerushalayim with a rebuilt Beit Hamikdash! Cost is just $20 per child, two for $35 or three for $50 ($50 max per family)!
