Tzedakah

Generosity is one of the hallmarks of Jewish life. Tzedakah, Gemilut Chasadim (acts of loving kindness), and Tikkun Olam (repairing the world) are core Jewish values. Though often described as charity, tzedakah literally means righteousness or justice. Each class will collect tzedakah money each session. During the school year, students will help decide which organizations will receive the funds collected by their class. In addition to collecting money for tzedakah, each class will be responsible for a Tikkun Olam project.
