First Yachad Event of the Year!

On Wednesday evening October 17, over one hundred students and more than forty Yachad and Ohel members celebrated the first Yachad event of the year. The YOF Yachad programs are all a fun way to get to know and interact with people who have mental and physical challenges. With everyone gathered in the Beit Midrash, Jennifer Weitzman, a Yachad commissioner, explained that the goal of the program was "to introduce Yachad to everyone and show them how uplifting the experience is."  Yachad events bring unity and show that everyone has their differences but we can all be as one, together. Students paired up with Yachad members to play a Brachot game, jeopardy style. Next, the gym was filled with music and dancing that lifted our spirits. We concluded the night by enjoying dinner together and hanging out. It was an amazing experience. ~Jeanette Eliezer
