Nigri Online School Students Empowered To Spread Light

The Nigri Jewish Online School launched their annual #SpreadTheLight campaign, for their students to find friends and neighbors to share menorahs with.

Over Chanukah, students of the Nigri Jewish Online School of the Shluchim Office gave out Chanukah kits, sharing the light of Chanukah to their communities around the world. One student, Ember Usher, took it to the next level.

The Nigri Jewish Online School, sister school to Nigri Shluchim Online School caters to families worldwide who don’t have access to Jewish education or prefer online learning.

Before Chanukah, the school launched their annual #SpreadTheLight campaign, mailing each student a package of Menorahs, one to keep and use and others to share with Jewish families who didn’t have a Menorah. With the situation in Eretz Yisroel, the campaign to add more light was received so enthusiastically by both students and their families. 

The students were thrilled to get their Chanukah package and were empowered to spread the light of Chanukah to their surroundings. 

One student, Ember Usher, decided to use this campaign as an opportunity to connect with someone who would enjoy a Menorah and a visit. She was put in touch with Ms. Marcia who is the only Jewish woman in her building. Both Ember and Mrs. Marcia had a great time getting to know each other, even making plans to go to a local Chanukah party together. 

“We have plans to Ms. Marcia regularly,” said Mrs. Chava Usher, Ember’s mother. “Ms. Marcia doesn’t have any family so now we get the privilege of having her join ours! Thank you for this beautiful campaign, it gave us such a unique opportunity to be able to connect.”

Another family who received the kits called the school to get more Menorahs, they reported excitedly that they had given them all out and were eager to continue spreading light.
