AMIT Eitan students create Purim magic
Ninth-grade students from AMIT Eitan Jr. and Sr. High School for Boys worked hard in recent weeks to ensure that every child in Ma’ale Adumim would have a costume for Purim this year, demonstrating the AMIT core tenet of living Jewish values and embracing Klal Yisrael.
As in previous years, the students produced a huge Purim event for the city’s disadvantaged kids, many of whom cannot afford to buy new costumes for the holiday.
The AMIT students held a drive to collect costumes, enlisted vendors to donate goods or services, created signs and decorations, and planned activities for the big day.
Finally, last Thursday, they held a party at their school, which included bouncy castles, frozen-drink machines, cotton candy and popcorn, a face-painting station, clowns, and balloons—all of which was donated for the cause.
There was also a stand full of costumes, where each child got to choose one for the upcoming Purim holiday.
Daniel Be’eri, the school’s principal, said this event teaches the students an important life lesson about contributing to their community.
