After learning about several mitzvot bein adam l’chaveiro, the Cahal Yeshiva of South Shore’s sixth and seventh grade classes put their lessons into action with a visit to the residents of the Nautilus Hotel, an assisted-living facility in Atlantic Beach. Rabbi Chananya Grinberg, Rabbi Justin Lepolstat, and Rabbi Moshe Salhanick accompanied the boys and helped to create a memorable experience for both the class and residents. The boys had the opportunity to introduce themselves and share their backgrounds.
With great energy, the rebbeim and class danced and sang songs to help the residents enjoy a sense of simcha for the yom tov season. The residents clapped and sang along, expressing how happy they were to have the students entertaining them.
The highlight of the event was when the boys were able to connect with the residents in one-to-one conversations. Many of the residents shared their own stories, and the students listened attentively and asked questions. Much appreciation goes to Ms. Melody Kassover, the Nautilus activities director, who coordinated the event. The experience was mutually heartwarming and positive for everyone
