JFS is doing their 34th annual Passover Food Basket Distribution where they deliver bags and boxes to those in need in our community. Last year 130 deliveries to individuals and families either in nursing homes or living independently in the community were made.
Slater Torah Academy students have been contributing handmade items towards these baskets for the past couple of years.
This year, together with their art teacher, Ms. Denise Brown, the students decorated beautiful cloth Matzah covers, making almost 70 covers to send to people in need.
One of our school's core values is about instilling values. The students put a lot of effort into these covers even though they were not going to be able to keep them. This enthusiasm by our students in the Mitzvah of Tzedakah is part of what makes our school such a special place.
