There’s a myth about teenagers in the world, that they are unmotivated and self-absorbed. But if you walked into Bais Rivkah High School at any point in the past few days, this would be easily disproved.
In under a week, airplanes have been constructed, plantations have been painted, and enormous towers have been built out of broken spoons. Maamarim, discussions on deepest concepts of chassidus became visual exhibits. Chassidic concepts do not remain abstract but became alive. You won’t be seeing the trademark green uniform skirt for a while, because many girls’ uniforms are splattered with a rainbow of paint.
What is all the preparation for? Why are the students of Bais Rivkah digging into their deepest resources of creativity and understanding of Torah and Chassidus to create beautiful decorations for their school?
