DRS High School dedicated a week to appreciating the beauty of the mitzvah of tzitzit. Tthe school scheduled various activities and programs surrounding this most important mitzvah. On Monday, Rabbi Aaron Feigenbaum, mara d’asra of the IPM Minyan, delivered a captivating and energetic lecture to the student body about seeing the tzitzit as the “uniform of the Jewish people.”
On Tuesday, each shiur took time to go through various sources in the Gemara and Shulchan Aruch discussing this commandment. DRS menahel Rabbi Yisroel Kaminetsky also led a “tztizit making workshop” for the rebbeim in his office, which would come in handy later in the week when every student in DRS received a pair of tzitzit and were taught to make their own pair. The school also held a “Shiur vs. Shiur Tug-of-String” Competition in the gym on Wednesday to foster more achdut between classmates.
