Happy Trails at Bruriah

On June 6th, Bruriah Junior High Coordinator Mrs. Zehava Greenwald took the Bruriah 8th graders to the Elizabeth River Trail to do volunteer work with Groundwork Elizabeth. ​It was a wonderful opportunity to integrate classroom learning with daily living as well a chance to give back to our community and environment. The experience was very valuable!

After learning Parshas Kedoshim which contains many mitzvos, the students voted on suggestions for a class project that they could undertake in connection with a mitzva לפני עור לא תתן מכשול. The top one came to Ava Weitz’s suggestion of beautifying a park. Mrs. Greenwald was in touch with Jonathan Philips from the Elizabeth Park System and arranged to help cleanup at the running trail.
