Updated: Apr 28


Educator: Yuval Arad

Place: Misgav


This is what my last few days have looked like: My phone hasn’t stopped ringing since 8:00am, “What do you even have to do?” Everyone asks me. “A ton,” I say, “There are my busiest days ever:”

  1. Planning alternative activities

  2. Making sure that all of the participants have someone to talk to

  3. Taking care of the participants in home isolation

  4. Giving kids air to breath and a place to express their fears and frustrations

  5. Giving hope

  6. Making a routine despite the uncertainty

  7. Providing educational tools in places I’ve never educated

  8. Being together, even though everyone is in their own home


The “secret strength of the movement” is discovered precisely in times like these But it looks like these times will last an especially long time

And we will need to learn and teach patience as well.
