Community Service

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.

Becoming a bar mitzvah means taking on responsibility in making the world a better place. Doing community service has allowed me to begin putting my values into action. As I began exploring …

Benjamin Sternhell When I first heard about all the things I had to do for this bar mitzvah, the only part I thought I’d enjoy was community service.

Gabe Zimmerman As part of my Bar Mitzvah I had to perform a number of hours of community service. I think that performing community service interlocks with this Bar Mitzvah because this Bar Mitzvah focuses on learning about yourself and your connection to the world. Also it reminds me that one of the basic tenets of secular Judaism is social …

Jonah Lieberman Flint For my community service I did two different things. First, I went to work for three days at the International Center for Photography. At the ICP I helped with the early stages of an exhibition that is planned to mount images by the photographer Roman Vishniac. This community service was focused on supporting Jewish culture. Roman Vishniac …

Ryan Kramer Last year, I was asked to help out assisting the teacher for the younger classes at TCC’s KidSchool. This kind of community service is called Talmud Torah. It intrigued me, because I had never thought of being a teaching assistant before. When TCC came to me and asked if I wanted to do this, I figured that I’d …
