BUILDING KINDNESS AT THE OHEL DOV CARPENTRY SHOP IN ASHDOD

May 21, 2017

Every week, Rabbi Yaakov Hartin arrives at our school in Ashdod to teach carpentry to our older boys, giving them skills for life.

In recent weeks, the boys have been busy crafting "shtenders", wooden lecterns that hold an open book in place. The use of a shtender reduces the likelihood of neck strain and enhances one's ability to peruse a book during Torah study sessions.

The boys in the carpentry class decided that making shtenders would be just the first part of a unique project. They decided to set up a gemach, a free-loan fund, with their hand-crafted shtenders.

Now, any young man in the school who wishes to learn Torah in a comfortable way in the Beis Medrash, can apply to the student carpenter in charge of the shtender gemach and borrow a carefully-made shtender.
