Yeshiva Students Run, Learn About Health

| |

The Bnei Akiva Nechalim yeshiva has decided to take seriously the issue of health awareness among youth and decided to devote a whole month of activities to the issue.

During the course of the month the students learned about nutrition, fitness, harmful factors and addictions. Arutz Sheva visited the yeshiva on the final day of this month-long project, which was made up of a school-wide marathon run.

“This past month we’ve been studying about ‘a healthy soul in a healthy body,’” Shmulik Zilberzweig, Director of Social Education at Bnei Akiva Nechalim, told Arutz Sheva. “We started at the beginning of the month with a healthy meal for all the students. Afterwards, we held together with the Lev El Lev Association sessions on what should be eaten, what should not be eaten, what damages can be caused by smoking, etc.”

The special month ended with a marathon run, in which all the students in the yeshiva, their rabbis, the Rosh Yeshiva and the administration took part.
