When more than 600 first through fifth grade students from Donna Klein Jewish Academy (DKJA), Hillel Day School and Torah Academy gathered on February 22nd to learn about and practice the Jewish responsibility to take care of the people around us, it was only one component of this year’s comprehensive hands-on Chesed Day project. They learned together in Zinman Hall before decorating caps and making cuddly lap blankets for children with serious illnesses, with guidance from Middle School students. When the DKJA and Weinbaum Yeshiva High School students who began the project deliver decorated boxes full of the children’s work to recipient organizations, they’ll complete a “chesed circle” of nearly 1,000 students who will carry their lessons far into the future.
