MTA Students Help Rebuild Communities

Last Sunday, a number of MTA juniors and seniors answered the chesed call of Bonim Builders, a division of the Jewish Federation of Northern New Jersey that helps to “renovate and perform critical repairs for low income families, seniors, and the physically disabled.” The groups of students, accompanied by YUHS executive director Shuey Jacoby, worked to take apart the kitchen of a disadvantaged older woman whose home was in desperate need of repair. The boys spent hours tearing down the ceiling, removing sheetrock and cleaning up. Upon ripping out the wall and ceiling of the pantry, the team was shocked to discover a massive (and fortunately non-active) beehive that was still dripping honey. It was a fascinating moment in a challenging but rewarding experience. All the participants were glad to be able to help out.
