Yosef Chaim’s Project Chesed

Shira Yehudit Djilmand

In our Talmud Torah, winter means Project Chesed. Every year around this time the principal calls us all into the dining room to talk to us.

Now that shemittah is over, we can once again experiment with growing plants. If you live in Eretz Yisrael, the next time you go shopping for fruits and vegetables, take a look at the packaging of the leafy vegetables. Do you see anywhere written מצע מנותק? This means the vegetable was grown using a special method called hydroponics.

 

A First Time for Everything

C. B. Lieber

Do you want to make an arts and crafts project? Just grab a pencil and some markers. Easy enough, right? Want to listen to some music while you work? Turn on the CD player. Pencils, markers, CDs… Did you ever stop and wonder who invented these objects we take for granted?
