Midreshet Torat Chessed, a project of Bet Elazraki Children’s Home, a world renowned Emunah children’s home for at risk children, offers its students the opportunity to combine serious Torah study with life altering chessed on a daily basis. After a morning of stimulating classes with expert educators, each student is assigned to a group of children with whom she will each afternoon throughout the year. Under the guidance and tutelage of trained social workers – with whom the students meet each week – the girls greet these children every day after school, help them with homework , and share life’s ups and downs. As they serve as role models for the children, the seminary students learn lessons that will indelibly shape their own lives.
MTC’s program is rounded out through exciting tiyulim and numerous shabbatonim in different communities across the country. As an added bonus, the students learn firsthand about life in Israel, as they work side by side with young Israeli girls their own age, who are fulfilling their own year of Sheirut Leumi, National Service- providing the students with an opportunity to learn firsthand from their Israeli peers about life in the State of Israel. As Rachel Russman, of West Rogers Park and a graduate of ICJA, describes, “the combination of learning and work with the children of Bet Elazraki was a truly life changing experience and I am able to look back on it as one of the greatest years of my life. There is no doubt that I would not be the person I am today without the lessons and experiences that MTC gave me!”
