Emek Hebrew Academy is constantly planning and coordinating chesed opportunities for our students. The 7th and 8th grade boys recently launched their chesed program, “Tzarchay Tzibur” which means “community needs.” Throughout the course of the year, each boy has a five hour chesed commitment. Their kick-off event was the Chanukah Toy Drive, for which the boys brought in unwrapped toys. The toys were categorized by age and gender, wrapped, and distributed with a hand-written card to the children of Tomchei Shabbos. Similarly, the middle school girls packed and boxed Shabbos kits for patients at Cedars Sinai. Each package contained grape juice, electronic candles, challot, a Tefilla card and hand-made beautiful Refuah Sheleimah messages for the patients. Finally, our 4th grade boys wrote letters to our troops in Afghanistan. Dr. Eli Ziv, parent of a 4th grade student, and his troop all received special cards from our Emek students thanking them for their service and wishing them a safe return. These projects as well as many similarly themed endeavors, teach our children the mitzvah of focusing on the needs of others and giving back to the community
