What Makes Messima Special?
From a member of Workshop 67:
"My Messima is leading groups of tenth and eleventh graders in HaNoar Haoved VeHalomed, Habonim Dror's sister movement in Israel, at Ken Shoham, the movement youth center in Shoham. I lead the groups (kvutzot) with another person from Workshop, and an Israeli our age. With our kvutzot we use informal educational methods to teach about social justice, youth empowerment, Zionism, and more. Some mornings, we also come to schools to run activities and informal lessons. My favorite part of being in the ken is getting to sit with the kids in the kvutzot I lead and talking with them about how leading their activities went. Sometimes we all stay until an hour after everything's ended just to hang out. Messima has been such an amazing experience and I've learned a lot about what it means to be a madricha from the relationships I've developed with my partners and my chanichimot, and I'm going to miss them so much."
