Temple Emanu-El of Closter held its Kesher Olam (connection to the world) Expo last month. The annual fair connects organizations and b’nai mitzvah students with one another. The expo highlights mitzvah project opportunities that are ideal for students to volunteer with and/or fund-raise for. Students and parents meet with organization representatives to learn how they can get involved in a variety of hands-on projects. The goal is for the students to continue to volunteer long after their bnai mitzvah dates have passed.
