The weekly learning sessions were so enjoyable and so much effort was put into them. I enjoyed all the snacks, videos and raffles. It was a great opportunity to catch up with old schools friends. It was great to be part of something so special. To top it all off, the banquet was incredible, the décor was beautiful, the food was delicious and the atmosphere was so special. Hearing about the Russian girls's lives made me feel so grateful for what I have. I'm already looking (forward) to next year.

Dear Esther,

It has taken me a few days after the beautiful dinner to be able to express our thanks to you.
We are so grateful that Hasmonean was a part of this phenomenal project. As this was the first year that we are doing this, we were unsure of what to response would be. We had a good representation, but more importantly than that, the girls hat participated, benefitted unbelievably. They learnt so much. It starts with the learning of the mishnayos, but by the end is a feeling of being something so much bigger than one individual learning. The dinner compounded that. When our girls saw the other schools and even more when they saw the Russian girls, they realized the enormity of what they were part of.
Esther, you had a vision, you saw it through, and the fruits that it is bearing are just amazing.
We look forward to taking part again next year.
May H-m bless you with koach to keep up this amazing work.

With much admiration and gratitude,
Debbie Paster (on behalf of Hasmonean)

Dear Esther, (March 2020)

We'd just like to thank you so much for all your selfless work over the past few months (and years) with your outstanding Darkei Avos initiative. We can see Eliora has benefited so much from being part of your fantastic program, whether it has been giving her the confidence to learn, so far, two פרקים בעל פה or socially from your weekly testings and activities at Hendon Adass.
Most importantly you have enable Eliora to learn and internalize the messages of פרקי אבות which, אי"ה will remain with her and she'll use though out her life.
We thank you and please also pass on our gratitude to your amazing team, whether it was these brilliant volunteers who gave up their time weekly to come and test the girls, those who worked behind the scenes or those who organized the magnificent banquet that Eliora enjoyed so much and came home on such a high from. We really appreciate all the hard work, many hours, effort and dedication that you have put into making Darkei Avos an organization anyone would be proud to be part of.

Dear Esther,

We relocated from Israel this summer, and were looking for after school activities for our daughter Shira to participate, in order for her to feel a part of the community, do something valuable, and be in good company while doing so.
The Darkei Avos program was just what we were looking for, and we wanted to thank you for being behind this beautiful initiative.
It was a very powerful experience for Shira to be a part of such an amazing thing, see girls from different schools all active and united for a positive purpose, passionate about something else then themselves and their phones, having values and having fun altogether.
The final even was so impressive and so fun she was "high" all night and decided right then she is going to win it next year with two perakim by heart..! So thank you from the bottom of our hearts, and I hope to write to you again next year.

I can't thank you enough for the most meaningful and uplifting few months you have given to Ayelet culminating in the seuda last night which in Ayelet's words felt like being at a wedding and a fun concert at the same time.
To watch girls arranging to get together on shabbos afternoons and the like to learn their Pirkei Avos with such excitement and absolutely no parental pressure was amazing!
Kol hakavod to you and your team for producing such a professionally run project. It is not lost on the girls or their parents when the graphics are on such a high standard and the entire programme is run smoothly and efficiently. At no point did Ayelet feel pressured to perform - she wanted to achieve and looks forward to carrying on next year.
