Bergen County High School of Jewish Studies students Benjamin Kosiborod, David Stack, and Walter Stack visited the Jewish Home at Rockleigh earlier this month to present an end-of-the-year leadership project. The students told residents about the ways in which Jewish teens and young adults are getting involved in the international Jewish community to promote tikkun olam and continue the legacy and traditions of the Jewish people for generations to come. The teens talked about local and national programs and organizations, including the Jewish Federation of Northern New Jersey, BCHSJS USY, and BBYO, that provide opportunities to get involved in the community. They also discussed Taglit Birthright Israel, which sponsors trips to Israel for teens and young adults. The students also sang traditional Hebrew, Yiddish, and American songs and socialized with the residents.
