Yeshiva Goes to the Coast
Bochurim of the Lubavitch Yeshiva in Pretoria, South Africa, spent 10 days in a resort town. Shiurim were given via Skype.
The Lubavitch Yeshiva in Pretoria, South Africa, moved for 10 days to the coast, to Chabad of the North Coast in the resort town of Umhlanga, on the coast of KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa.
The Incentive Award Program, which allows the Bochrim to earn points, for attendance, punctuality and participation produced the desired effect, and the Bochrim were rewarded with the opportunity to have Seder for 10 days, over Pesach Sheni and Lag BaOmer at the Coast.
Rabbi Dovid Schurder and the Shluchim accompanied the Bochrim, and Rabbi Yosef Yitzchok Kesselman gave his daily Shiurim with Skype Video.
In addition to Seder, outings included indoor rock climbing, a visit to the Natal Sharks Board, the Durbam Holocaust Museum, a lesson in surf riding and bowling with the local Jewish Community.
Plans for Shovuous are to go to Plettenberg Bay on the South Coast to assist the local Jewish Community with Minyonim over Yom Tov.
