Chessed

chessed 1

MMY's chessed program is intended to instill within our talmidot with the value of gmilut chassadim. It is our firm belief that the development and religious growth of our talmidot is not complete without giving to others, specifically, those less fortunate in our own community. For this reason, we dedicate one afternoon a week for our chessed program.

 

Girls are placed in various chessed assignments based on their individual interests. Many of the chessed assignments are in Baka, specifically involving our talmidot in the needs of our immediate neighborhood, in order to take an active part in building our community. During chessed, most girls work with individuals and families, enabling them to cultivate relationships as well.
