Dbayeh Center Summer Camp (July, 2023)
Sabra Center Students visiting Tyre farm (July 15th)
Our Sabra Center students embarked on a journey to the JCC Farm in Tyre, where they immersed themselves in the fascinating realm of beekeeping and the art of crafting golden honey.
The visit to the farm was an eye-opening experience for the students. Our young explorers had the chance to witness the bees’ tireless dedication and learn about the vital role they play in our ecosystem.
Then they delved into the world of crop cultivation, gaining insights into the various vegetables and fruits grown on the farm, understanding the perfect timing for planting and harvesting, and how to work in harmony with nature’s rhythm.
The visit was a journey of inspiration; witnessing the bees’ continuous and diligent work taught our students valuable lessons about resilience and dedication. It was an experience that left them buzzing with enthusiasm and reverence for the wonders of nature.
Sabra Center Students commemorate the Nakba – May 15th
The Palestinians in all the areas of their diaspora remember and commemorate May 15 as the day they lost their country and the Israelis declared Palestine as their ancestral country of Israel.
This day is known as the Nakba Day meaning the catastrophe. It is the day hundreds of thousands of Palestinians were forced out of their homes, villages and towns and became refugees in different parts of the world. It is the day to remember a lost country and the right to return to it.
Dr. Elias Haddad, an expert in orthopedics and joints, spearheaded an awareness campaign focused on raising awareness about osteoporosis prevention and treatment. 37 women from the community had the opportunity to benefit from a free osteoporosis test, courtesy of the generous sponsorship from Yamed Pharmaceutical & Europharm. The test provided valuable insights into the participants’ bone health and helped identify potential risks or early signs of osteoporosis. The participants also received medical samples of vitamin D and calcium.
The awareness campaign, led by Dr. Elias Haddad, served as a platform for educating the community about osteoporosis and empowering individuals with the knowledge and resources to take proactive steps in preventing and treating this condition.
The nursery and young students from the Sabra Center embarked on an exciting excursion to the “Animal City” Zoo, located in the Nahr El Kalb area. This delightful outing allowed the children to immerse themselves in the captivating world of animals, both domestic and wild, as well as birds and reptiles. They relished the opportunity to observe and interact with the diverse array of creatures at the zoo, making it a memorable day for all.
As part of their continuous efforts to raise awareness, JCC Dbayeh, in collaboration with Justice Without Frontiers, conducted a session on domestic violence and bullying. This session aimed to educate participants about these important issues.
The event included a health awareness session led by physiotherapist Cesar Haddad, where women in attendance were provided with valuable information about common skeletal problems and effective treatment approaches.
The Sabra Center went all out to express their gratitude towards their hardworking teachers and staff on Teachers’ Day, by hosting a jubilant brunch. This was a momentous occasion to appreciate and honor the dedication and invaluable role of the teachers in shaping the lives of the young generation.
The celebration began with stirring speeches by the Center Director, Mrs. Taha, and then by the JCC Director, Mrs. Haddad, who recognized the teachers for their unwavering commitment and dedication to their profession.
The brunch was a heartwarming event that acknowledged and celebrated their hard work and reminded them of the significance of their role in shaping the future of the young generation.
