Linking Northern and Central NJ, Bronx, Manhattan, Westchester and CT

BCHSJS students participated on Sunday in “The Exodus Games,” a pre-Passover program. Included was a lesson and project on modern day slavery, a mitzvah art-activity to enhance the seders of the group-home residents of the Jewish Association for Developmental Disabilities (J-ADD), relay races based on the ten plagues, charoset food prep, and re-enacting scenes from Exodus. A fun-filled, educational experience was had by all!

Students at the Bergen County High School of Jewish Studies participated in a mitzvah program this past Sunday with the residents of the Jewish Association for Developmental Disabilities (J-ADD) in Teaneck. BCHSJS students and J-ADD residents spent time socializing and creating Passover crafts together. The visit to the J-ADD home had a significant impact on the BCHSJS students. Eden Hirsch, a 10th grader said “The trip really changed my perspective on how I view things. I didn’t realize that an hour of my busy schedule could make someone else’s day.” Abby Reicher, an 8th grade student at BCHSJS shared, “The smiles of the men and women we visited filled my heart with joy. I had a blast helping them and working with them. It was a great experience that I hope to do again!”

Bergen County High School of Jewish Studies is a supplementary Hebrew high school for grades 8-12 that meets on Sundays at The Moriah School in Englewood. Visit their website www.bchsjs.org for further details.
