Aseret Yemei Teshuva Chesed Project
Midreshet Shalhevet (MSH) students are very aware that it is especially important to give Tzedaka during Aseret Yemei Teshuva. Organized by senior and G.O. president, Sarah Austin, the students have been collecting supplies for the past few weeks, to donate to women's shelters as a chesed helping homeless women in our community. Special thanks to the Oppenheim family for their very generous donation. All the planning concluded in a much anticipated event on erev Yom Kippur. Rabbi Pesach Chait gave a dvar Torah on the importance of Tzedaka. After the dvar Torah, the girls packed bags of the supplies they had collected. All in all, the girls brought in, and packed, enough to donate to more than 250 homeless women!
