It’s Not Activism, It’s Humanity

I was extremely dismayed to read the letter to the editor titled “Liberal Activism in Our Schools” last week. Not everything has to be politicized. This trip and the actions of these students were a tremendous Kiddush Hashem as it shows the Jewish People care about every individual and always strive to help. Isn’t this the ultimate expression of v’ahavta l’reacha kamocha?
I am proud to be a parent of children who attend the school that sponsored this trip. We should all hope that our children are as selfless as these teenagers have proven to be.

Additionally, the comparison to Jewish immigrants who entered this country legally is completely misguided. How many Jews perished during the Holocaust because strangers refused to help them?
