    On the first day of Shavuos, Released Time instructors headed out to Public Schools to conduct their weekly, Wednesday, hour of Jewish education. On foot, they reached public schools till the far ends of Brooklyn and Queens, distances of over 10 miles. The walk for some was 3 hours each way.

    When reaching the schools the children then joined the walk till the shull. While walking, a child asked one of the bochurim; “Why are we walking today and not driving like we always do?” When the bochur responded, “Because today is Shavuos and we don’t drive,” the child said, “So, next year I’m not even going to go to school on Shavuos!”

    For the children this was especially unique. Not only were they walking, but now, as each group of instructors came with a full minyon, they had the opportunity of experiencing a Torah reading and hearing the Aseres Hadibros being read from a Torah scroll.

    The children then enjoyed special Shavuos foods such as ice cream, blintzes, and chocolate milk.

    700 children and parents and other relatives and Friends participated in this special Released Time.

    One parent attending the program was so inspired that she shared with the bochurim that, as a result of her child attending the weekly program, for the past few months her child insisted on wearing Tzitzis every day.

    In lieu of returning home, many bochurim remained at the Shulls and Chabad houses to help out with their local Shavuos programs.

    Released Time Program would like to take this opportunity to express appreciation to all the instructors for their devotion and hard work. Likewise they would like to thank Yossi & Batsheva Popack for sponsorship of these events leiluy neshmas Harav Shmuel Aizik popack Harav Reb Avrom Halevi Popack and would like to offer a big yasher koach to the shuls and Chabad Houses for graciously assisting with their facilities and Siferei Torah and for continually being a home where the children from Public School come to learn and experience Yiddishkait.
