Sharing the Holiday Spirit


Twenty teenagers in suburban Connecticut joined the Mitzvah Corps last week,a unique new program inviting Jewish high school students to create and distribute holiday packages to local families. Students baked, packaged and personally delivered some 200 cheesecakes in honor of Shavuot. “Mitzvah Corps” empowers our teenagers to share their knowledge and enthusaism and affect the community in a positive way,” says Mrs. Yehudis Wolvovsky, program director at Chabad:East of the River in Glastonbury, Connecticut and coordinator of the event.
