Yeshiva girls took their own shoes off to help others

  • YouthYeshivaNetball1
Our Under 10 netball girls showed incredible Kiddush Hashem in the netball playoffs this week, taking the powerful Torah mitzvot "vehalachta bidrachav" -- to walk in the ways of Hashem - to a new level.

During the playoffs, a competing school was advised by the coach of the opposing team that they could not play in school shoes. The girls proceeded to play barefoot. Once again, the opposing team objected and said that this was against the rules, and the team must therefore forfeit the match.

Upon hearing this, our Under 10 girls sprang into action, offering their sports shoes to the team. The team graciously accepted the offer, and played their game.

We cannot describe the immense nachas and pride we feel from this selfless act from our pupils. Kol hakavod girls - this is what we are about at Yeshiva College - and thank you for walking in His ways so beautifully.

After the match, the girls asked their parents to help donate sports shoes. A collection has begun, and is rapidly growing in number.
