Purim Is Here!!!
We wanted to share a D'var Israel that we delivered last Shabbat at Adath Israel about
Good Deeds Day!
Purim Carnival At Adath Israel
Adath Israel's annual Purim carnival and Megilla Reading! Competitions, games, music and mostly a lot of fun!

The Maccabeats - המכבים
On Sunday we went to see a concert for an Israeli band named A-WA along with other Shinshinim. The band is a trio of three sisters who learned how to sing even before they learned to walk. The sisters have taken over the internet with their Yemenite groove that is making millions want to dance all over the world. Their music video "Habib Galabi" has close to three million views on YouTube.
The Israeli crowd was captivated by their music and now so is the Toronto crowd.
A-WA is sending a refreshing and authentic breeze of world music to the music scene in Israel and abroad.
Thank you A-Wa for bringing us a taste of home to Toronto!
יום המעשים הטובים - Good Deed's Day
Tuesday last week was Good Deeds Day in Israel. More than 300,000 Israelis went to volunteer in more than 14,000 different places and different projects!
We decided to dedicate the next two weeks to the importance of giving to others, doing good deeds to one another, and acting as caring members of our society and community.
Talking about Good Deed's Day at Associated Danilack and about the different organizations and charities in Israel is very important to us and we are glad we have the chance to do so.
We hope that all the students learned something new about Israel and how to be a better friend!

Purim Event At Associated Danilack
This week as a part of the Purim celebrations, we took part in Associated Danilack's amazing and huge Purim carnival! We dressed up as "Eifo Effi" (The Israeli Waldo)! We read from the Megillah, ran a fun carnival competition station and danced Israeli Just Dance with the students! This was an unforgettable experience for us, so different from what we know, thank you for making this day amazing! Chag Purim Sameach!
