As part of their graduation experience, the Grade 8 class of The Leo Baeck Day School planned a School-Wide Tzedakah Project in support of Beit Halochem, a rehabilitation centre for Israeli Veterans. As we mark the 50th anniversary of the Six Day War, the value of organizations like this one is especially prominent. The students raised $630!
For their Tzedakah Project, the Grade 8s ran a “Spring Cleaning” Day during which they offered many cleaning services, including:
- A car wash during drop-off and an opportunity to buy coffee
- A locker and/or backpack cleanup
- A shoe shine
- A screen clean for all devices
- Cleaning up (braiding) your hair
- Even hand-washing with designer soaps!
On behalf of our disabled heroes in Israel, we thank the Grade 8 class at Leo Baeck making this tzedakah project so successful.
