YBA Students: Champions of Chesed!

YBA Students: Champions of Chesed!

This past June YBA Givat Shmuel received a call: Could the Yeshiva help a young man from a needy family with his Bar Mitzvah? Without missing a beat, the entire 10th grade-135 young men- began planning. With logistical support from the school, the 10th graders raised funds and organized catering, decorations, music and invitations. Dressed as waiters, they served the young man and his guests, and joined them for joyous dancing. Rabbi Shraga Fruchter, Rosh Yeshiva of Givat Shmuel stated: "Joy was bursting out of the Bar Mitzvah boy, his friends, his family and his hosts. This was a moment of Jewish and Israeli embrace. It makes us happy to see the education in Chesed and responsibility being put into action, and it warms the heart to see students giving of their own time for Chesed and Tikkun Olam."
