Community Service

Alanna Olken As far as my community service activities go, the occasions are many. Since before I could stand, I have participated in marches and walks, first in a stroller, then in a wagon, then on roller blades, then on a scooter. I’ve been strolled, rolled, and walked through the Aids Walk, The Breast Cancer Walk, and numerous Labor Union …

Jason Cheskis When I started planning my community service project, I wanted to work with animals. I contacted several vets and shelters, but I wasn’t old enough to work with animals. This made me think further, and I came up with an idea that involves Children’s Village. In 1851, Children’s Village was founded. It is a residential school for boys …

I’d much rather do hard work that helps people than have to write a talk or a research paper. I’d already done lots of different kinds of community service or social action …

Benjamin Weitz Community service is when you try to help others with their needs. Social action is when you express your opinion and try to change something. In both you are trying to make a difference in the world, to make something better. But community service more directly affects people’s lives. I did both for my Bar Mitzvah work. I …

Danielle Nourok A part of my Bat Mitzvah process was to do community service. I had to do thirteen hours, each hour representing a year of my life. My first choice was to work with animals because I thought it would be fun, but most shelters wouldn’t let me volunteer because of my age. Instead, I found a place called …

Kyra Zimmerman For my community service, I did several different activities. I wanted to find activities that would help those in need generally, but would also be of personal importance to people in my life. All the different activities were meaningful to me and will effect me forever. My first activity involved an animal shelter. Sabrina who is my bat …

Abigail Cheskis For my bat mitzvah I have done many community service activities. The main activity I did was making blankets out of fleece for children at a shelter run by Westhab. Westhab was founded in 1981 with the purpose of providing homes to homeless people in Westchester County. By now they have moved 4,000 families into permanent homes. This …
