Oorah Nachas Files- “I Learned It At ChillZone”

With Learn n' ChillZone in full swing, read something remarkable that a camp TorahMate related last week.

 Learning with his TorahMate, a ten-year-old from a day school in Brooklyn, he was impressed with the boy’s superb command of the parshas hashovuah. He was particularly impressed because the week before, the boy had demonstrated a clear lack of knowledge about the parsha of the week. He asked his TorahMate, “Who taught you the parsha this week? Did you learn it in school?”

 

“Nah,” replied the boy. “I don’t remember anything we learn in school. We learned about the parsha in ChillZone. That’s where I know it from.”
