Martial Arts Therapy

On Wednesday, March 13, the Yeshivah of Flatbush had its first Martial Arts Therapy event. Martial Arts Therapy uses physical and mental exercises to help sick and disabled children overcome their weaknesses. Sensei Rabbi Gary Moskowitz, the founder of the program, led a class focused on therapy and recreation. Special needs children from various organizations participated in the martial arts class. Student volunteers from the our high school were by the side of the children as they ate dinner and performed the martial arts techniques. It was important that students from our yeshivah participated because the program revolves around socializing. Our students a bond with them and the children related to the YOF students who had similar Jewish background and values.  ~Isaac Dayan
