Recently the young parents of ENG (ESRA New Generation) met on a Friday morning at the Ayanot agricultural boarding school near Beit Oved for a special outing. Parents and children chatted over a breakfast picnic and were then taken on a tour of the fields in a tractor, picked oranges, fed farm animals, and made their own cheese and pitas.
A few weeks ago, the ENG members met again for a parents and toddlers musical story-time.
Nomi has coordinated a program of activities, workshops, picnics and lectures for the ENG group. Some meetings have been joint ESRA Rishon and ENG meetings, like a lecture on Social Media and a Games Night, and some have been exclusively for the younger group.
ENG is a young(er) branch of ESRA in Rishon LeZion, coordinated by Nomi Sharan-Gazit and Janet Kiesari, the chairperson of ESRA Rishon. Nomi and Janet have set out to reach every English speaker in Rishon between the ages of 25-50. They invite every English speaker they come across to join the slowly growing community of younger English speakers in Rishon and participate in many kinds of activities designed especially for them.
