In Hashavua Article, Yavneh News

This year in Kitah Hay – 5th Grade, we have already embarked on our path of service in the context of Jewish learning. Through learning the teachings of the 12th Century Spanish philosopher Maimonides, we came to understand the hierarchy of the mitzvah (commandment) of tzedakah (righteous giving), from contributing items of material significance to creating lifelong opportunities for those in need.  In the fall, we orchestrated a schoolwide donation drive for local animal shelters, providing hundreds of pets in need with basic necessities.

Now, we are embarking on a new pathway–five of them, in fact. Our class has split itself into five groups, each dedicated to researching and addressing a cause through charitable actions.   Each of these groups will have a week in the spotlight, sometimes paired together, where they will reach out to you and mobilize the Yavneh community onto their particular path of service. Listed below are the five causes that will be spotlighted for the next three weeks starting Monday.

1. Raising Seed Donations

2. Supporting the LGBTQ+ Community 

3.  Boosting Immigration Rights & Access 

4. Providing Mental Health Resources & Support 

5.  Supporting People Coping with Disabilities 

We hope you will find it in your heart to donate or spread awareness of these causes in any way you like.   Todah Rabbah on behalf of all of Kitah Hay!
