The Family Day In Nitzan Center

Yad Rachel After-School Center in Nitzan chose to celebrate the Family Day with the Chef’s School dedicated to this special day. The children made pralines in different flavours of their choice. After preparing the chocolate they turned to writing a blessing and gift wrap for the sweets they created for the family.

Tu Bishvat in Yad Rachel Afterschool Centers

Not long ago we celebrated Tu Bishvat in our Afterschool Centers across the country. In Nitzan Center we’ve cooked together with the children different meals and prepered them enriching knowledge quiz on this holiday and its customs. Our centers in Tel Aviv, which operate under complex conditions of instability and technical difficulties, were able to arrange special activities for children coming from families of refugees and migrant workers.

Hanukkah Celebrations in Afterschool Centers

All our Centers celebrated Hanukkah with a scope of special festive activities. Most places have held a party together with the parents, providing unique and fun experience while discovering together symbolic meanings of the holiday, its customs and traditions, the connection between these symbols, paying attention to the emotional aspect of working with children and family members. Nitzan and Mavki’im Centers held the traditional event Mishpahanuka. Both Centers offered the children and their parents a full day of activities. The families were engaged in a very special way and shared the experience with children. The feedbacks in both Centers were very positive and exciting. These days were made possible thank to a huge effort of the teams before and of and during the activities. Here is a short video link tor you to have a taste of this unique experience: 

Healthy nutrition workshop for parents of Afterschool Center children in the South

The Yad Rachel Afterschool Centers in Yishuv Nitzan and Yishuv Mavki’im started a nutrition workshop for parents this month, provided by “Leket Israel”.

The workshop is taught by a nutritionist, and during the meetings the parents learn about healthy nutrition, receive tips and recipes for healthy meals, and even practice cooking. In our work with children and parents at Activity Centers, we touch the lives of the families and the kids and try to improve their quality of life in various aspects.
