Temple Avodah Hebrew School of Oceanside, NY raises awareness and funds for ALEH
May 30, 2011
Students at Temple Avodah Hebrew School in Oceanside, NY recently ran a tzedaka fair, where students teamed up based on a charity they felt connected to. Each team then proceeded to raise awareness and funding for “their” charity’s activities.
Katherine Coffey and her friends chose ALEH as their charity, “because we love your mission to help disabled children in Israel.”
Katherine sent us an email asking for information to share at the event, which was attended by parents, faculty and community members. The team set up a beautiful display – they showed ALEH videos, explained our mission and were true advocates for ALEH’s very special children.
The group not only raised money and awareness for ALEH but also sent an important message to us all: To love someone is to see him or her the way G-D created them. We need to look beyond the disabilities to the child within, and it is our responsibility to help those who cannot help themselves.
