The bus will be arriving at Oorah’s Lakewood office any minute to carry our campers off to TheZone for a fun-filled summer!
This Sunday, Fiveish will be making a special live appearance at the Bnos Yaakov Child Health and Safety Fair! The 13th annual fair will be taking place on June 24, from 11:00 AM – 5:00 PM, at the Clifton Avenue Grade School in Lakewood. Join Fiveish for a fun and educational afternoon!
All our Oorah friends are invited to join us at our inaugural TorahMates retreat, a time to stimulate mind, body and soul in the comfort of TheZone’s beautiful resort grounds. This getaway is a chance to leave the stresses of your daily life behind and focus on what’s really important to you. It’s an opportunity you don’t want to miss!
The TorahMates Retreat features inspiring lectures, personalized TorahMates study sessions, full access to TheZone’s entertainment amenities and gourmet meals.
We will be holding two separate events, one for adult women only and another for men only.
Women’s Retreat: Sunday, July 1st- Tuesday July 3rd.
Men’s Retreat: Wednesday, July 4th- Sunday, July 8th.
For more information, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (866) 4-SABBATH.
A new Torah Mates partnership was just formed:
Mr. M.H. from Canada signed up for a learning partner online. His grandfather, who was the gabbai in Sighet (Satmar), was killed in the Holocaust. We set him up with a chasid living in Williamsburg!
Turns out that M.H.’s Hebrew name is Chaim Zvi, ¬†named after the Sigheter Rav, the Atzei Chaim, R’ Chaim Zvi Teitelbaum, the son of the Kedushas Yom Tov. The Torah Mate we set him up with, Yoel, is named after R’ Yoel Teitelbaum, the Atzei Chaim’s brother!
Dear Mrs. Sonenschein and all of the Oorah Rebbetzins and staff,
I just want to say thank you for all of your time and hard work. The opportunity that you created this Shabbos for all of us is really the greatest chessed. I myself and I am sure all of the singles feel a deep hakaras hatov to all of you for being so committed to helping us build our own bayis ne’eman b’Yisroel.
A parent sending her children back to TheZone for another summer:
“Last year my son had Yoel L. as a counselor and that would be WONDERFUL if 1 of my 2 boys can have him again this year!! We were in contact with him all year round and I love this boy. He was a counselor, a dad, a friend and really made a difference in my son’s life.”
It’s been a while since we brought our readers an update on the construction going on in the Oorah office. Well, we finally have some good news on that front. We are excited to let you know that the new cafeteria area has been opened!
Both male and female employees can now enjoy lunch in the expanded eating areas in the trailers. The women’s dining area is where the daycare used to be. The daycare is now in the area that was formerly the men’s offices. A convenient walkway has been set up between the main office building and the trailers, going through the mail-room.
Getting confused? So are we! It’s a new maze to learn until we get used to the renovated office configuration.
“We had to throw away our Fiveish because our basement got flooded and we saw our garbage truck driving around town with Fiveish displayed…”
