Zimria - Shinshinim Toronto 2016


This week we had the opportunity to volunteer at Reena with all the other Shinshinim.

Reena promotes dignity, individuality, independence, personal growth and community inclusion for people with developmental disabilities within a framework of Jewish culture and values .

We all had the opportunity to go into the Reena's classrooms and see how this institution works. At the end of our visit we all made bags for Save a Child's Heart and sang Israeli songs together

On Monday we were invited to speak at a Na'amat Canada meeting.

Na'amat Canada is a worldwide women’s movement whose ideological roots lie with the founding women of the State of Israel and their vision for social justice and equality.

The women listened to us talk about our process in getting into this year of service, the Shinshinim program , our feelings about going into the IDF and much more.

Thank you so much to Na'amat for hosting us and sharing your thoughts and feeling on our Shnat Sherut and on Israel!

Omer's Butterflies

Following our last program about Good Deed’s Day at AHS Danilack, we decided to talk about another Israeli project called-Omer’s Butterflies.

Omer Shemesh was a young Israeli woman who decided to go on a big trip to Nepal after her army service. Her bus tragically tipped over a cliff and unfortunately she died in this accident.

Omer loved butterflies and even had a butterfly tattoo on her back with the saying “Butterflies are forever”.

After her death, her friends started painting butterflies all around the world in her memory.

Omer was also known for small acts of kindness she did for others. Her parents felt that Omer was a gift from God and that they needed to share this gift with the rest of the world. They began an organization called Omer's Butterflies. They created bracelets with the saying “butterflies are forever” on it and gave it to people. The idea behind these bracelets is that the person with the bracelet will do something good for someone else and give him their bracelet. By doing so, the hope is that acts of kindness would be passed on to others.

This week in our Judaic classes, we talked about qualities we think the “ideal” person possesses. We learned about Omer and her way of doing good for others . We also learned about Omer’s Butterflies project and our hope is that each one of the students will take this project and apply it their own personal lives and spread the butterflies.
