וְכָל מִי שֶׁעוֹסְקִים בְּצָרְכֵי צִבּוּר בֶּאֱמוּנָה

 

Healing. Forgiveness. Bracha. Hatzlacha.

 

“How do we get them?” asked Rebbetzin Toby Teller to the hundreds of girls listening to Bnos Agudas Yisroel’s “Giving is Gaining” teleconference program.

 

“By giving our time and energy to the klal, the community,” she answered.

 

Rebbetzin Teller was just one of four top mechanchos from around the country who shared their wisdom during Bnos’ Aseres Y’mei Teshuvah Program.

 

Monday night featured Mrs. Yael Kaisman from Lakewood. Tuesday had Rebbetzin Teller from Chicago. Mrs. Shuli Benguigui from Miami spoke on Wednesday night. And Mrs. Nechama Denebo of L.A. wrapped up the program on Thursday.

 

All the speakers focused on the benefits of contributing to the klal. The girls heard that when you make yourself part of the klal, you can tap into the zechuyos, merits, of the klal.

 

They learned that even small actions and commitments could make a big difference. That’s especially true when it comes to Bnos. A high-school leader or Big Sister may influence and reach a younger girl in a way that an adult teacher cannot.

 

The message must have sunk in because many girls signed up for Bnos programs for the coming year.

 

“Thank you for all the girls who volunteered,” says Mrs. Chana Baila Hass, National Director of Bnos Agudath Israel. “But we still have lots of girls waiting for Bnos One on One Big Sisters or a Bnos leader for their chapter.”

 

“Don’t underestimate yourself,” Mrs. Hass emphasizes. “There’s something for everyone to do, and even a small job has a huge impact and zechus.”

 

Are you ready to give and gain? Do you want to be a Big Sister in Bnos One on One? Would you like to join or start a Bnos chapter in your neighborhood?

 

Call Bnos at 212-797-9000 ext. 330 or email Mrs. Hass at cbhass@agudah.org.
