There is no vacation from Torah study for the motivated girls in Emet’s Women’s Division. In fact, this summer the learning just got more creative. Emet recently debuted the first in a four-part series on “Positive Thinking.” Held in a beautiful backyard in Forest Hills, the series kicked off with an engaging and inspirational shiur by Rabbi Shalom Yona Weis. “Emet started this series because the students were asking to have consistent weekly learning during the summer,” said Ms. Adina Fendel, Women’s Director. “We try to provide opportunities to incorporate Torah study during the week, so this was a perfect way to make it relevant and relaxing.”

After the shiur, the girls enjoyed a delicious dinner and connecting with friends. The fun focal point came when attendees demonstrated their artistic abilities while painting beautiful keepsakes of the Kotel. “It was a really great night that combined learning and a fun bonding activity,” said Nayomi Matayev, who helped coordinate the event. “We can’t wait for the next session.” The second installment of the series will be accompanied by a soap-making activity.
