BCHSJS visits Yad Leah volunteer center

Last week, students from the Bergen County High School of Jewish Studies went to the Yad Leah Volunteer Center in Passaic. To prepare for the visit, a clothing drive was held at school and 20 large bags of new and gently used clothing were collected. During the visit, Jessica Sosland Katz, a BCHSJS alumnae who heads Yad Leah, spoke to the group about the importance of the clothing as a basic need, as well as a way to enhance the self-esteem of the person receiving the clothing. The group then sorted, folded, and packed the clothing into boxes to be sent to families in need in Israel.
