In Yavneh News

Our 5th-grade students recently supported their service learning journey with a meaningful visit to Jewish Family and Children’s Services (JFCS) in Palo Alto.

JFCS’s mission aligns perfectly with our values at Yavneh Day School. Their commitment to supporting families and individuals of all ages, fostering Jewish continuity, and promoting community responsibility resonates deeply with our own educational ethos.

During their visit, Mr. Sleep’s Kitah Hay students actively engaged in various service activities. They brought donations from Yavneh, assisted in sorting food in the pantry and refrigerators, and helped bag items for client orders. Additionally, they crafted Purim gifts for families in need and assembled care packages for refugee families new to the Bay Area.

It was a hands-on experience that allowed our students to directly contribute to their community’s well-being while embodying the values of kindness, compassion, and social responsibility that we strive to instill at Yavneh. This specific trip was influenced by Ella, Kobi, Aviv, and Akiva’s chosen organization to research and support, Nova Ukraine, which sends money, clothes, and food to refugees from the war in Ukraine.

Stay tuned for more — as our 5th graders continue their service journey, positively impacting the world around them!
