Just before Chai Elul, the Mivtzoim Depot of Lubavitch Youth org. held a campaign where women and girls conquered the stations of the 3 train line. Girls chose their stop, picked up stencils, chalk, spray chalk and lots of neshek, and went on their way to brighten up their stop – and the entire world!
