On Friday, Rosh Chodesh Tammuz, all Crown Heights Girls Schools Grades 4th-8th were invited to participate in a special program to mark Gimmel Tammuz.
The program was organized by the Bais Rivkah Seminary Beis, who said the reason they did so was twofold.
“In addition to lighting up as many neshamos as possible through mivtza neshek, the seminary hopes to share with the girls the beauty, privilege, and impact one has when they do the Rebbe’s shlichus,” they said.
The girls met at the Jewish Children’s Museum, where they were divided into groups for Mivtziom. They gathered for a briefing to help the girls tap into how great it is to do Mivtzoim.
They then set out on the Subway, traveling to various locations around Brooklyn. The girls participated in Chalk Shabbat – writing the Shabbos candle lighting time on the street with chalk, and also gave out Neshek kits to passersby.
They returned two hours later, inspired and excited by the day’s events, and ready to mark Gimmel Tammuz.
