Oorah Kicks off 2012 Auction With 8 Nights 8 Flights Raffle Who wouldn’t love to win a free ticket to Israel? Here’s the good news: Oorah’s annual 8 Nights 8 Flights raffle is now open for FREE entry as part of the official 2012 auction kickoff. Oorah’s auction, which still offers all of its 33 fabulous prizes for only $5 each (at most), is one of the main fundraisers for the organization’s extensive kiruv work.
Based in Lakewood, Oorah reconnects thousands of Jewish families with Torah and mitzvos through dozens of programs geared for every age. From subsidizing yeshiva tuition (without which hundreds of Jewish students would be in public schools) to running TheZone camp which scores of campers call home over the summer, to coordinating the thousands of TorahMates across the US and Canada, Oorah has become one big, happy, extended family.
The newest of Oorah’s programs is the Learn ‘n ChillZone, a place where, as the name suggests, teens get together for a few hours of shmoozing, followed by some learning. The inaugural week proved to be a smashing success. A staff member who volunteered in the Staten Island location of Learn ‘n ChillZone relates that they had begun the evening by hanging out and eating. They were nervous about breaking up the relaxed atmosphere to start learning, but the girls responded enthusiastically. So much so, that when they ended the learning groups to begin dancing together, she didn’t believe the reaction of one group. Read all about it on the Oorah blog!
Entering 8 Nights 8 Flights is absolutely FREE. Simply fill out a form at Oorah.org/8nights. And for every friend you refer, you get another free entry. Your name remains in the raffle for the entire eight days of Chanukah – that means you get a new chance to win every day!
Drawings will take place each day at 12 noon, and at 11 p.m. on Motzei Shabbos Chanukah. But hurry – don’t miss it! Enter NOW to win! [Oorah is a sponsor on TLS].
