Dozens of bochurim attended Released Time’s Regroup and Introduction Lunch to learn more about the program that teaches public school kids about Yiddishkeit and what it means to be Jewish.

The event took place Tuesday at Eshel Hall, where the bochurim heard about the program’s history, vision for the future and how they can be a part of it.

The Released Time Program (or Jewish Hour) under the N.C.F.J.E has been running for the past 80 years. Each Wednesday, groups of 770 bochurim head out to public schools throughout NYC to teach the Jewish children during the last hour of the school day.

“Our goal is to bring Yiddishkeit into their homes, send them to Jewish schools, and most of all to love being Jewish,” said Rabbi Shazak Zirkind, Released Time’s director.
