SAR High School Students Give Back at Chesed Night

SAR’s recent Chesed Night proved that the possibilities to do good are endless at SAR High School. Chesed in SAR takes on many different forms. No matter which clubs students choose to participate in, there is room for everyone and everything when it comes to chesed at the hive.

Chesed opportunities include the KCI Food Pantry, advisory trips to Manhattan Children’s Center and POTS, and numerous chesed clubs like DOROT, Community Connections and Music Vs., which works with the elderly, Breakfast Run, Hearts & Homes for refugees, and Learn to Be.

We have had the opportunity as this year’s Chesed Council co-presidents to expand chesed opportunities and make them more accessible for the SAR community to do chesed in their daily lives. We wanted the chesed to be both enjoyable and meaningful.

We hosted Chesed Night in order to highlight different organizations: Yachad, BeLev Achad and Zaka. We both felt connected and grateful to these organizations and wanted to give back.

We wanted Chesed Night to be fun but also meaningful and therefore had many different chesed activities people could partake in. Some of the stations featured were: kickball and circle time with Yachad members, Pesach packing for fallen soldiers’ family members where we wrote individualized notes to the families to go along with a bottle of wine, Cookies for a Cause where we baked and sold brownies and cookies, a pre-Pesach car wash, packing in the KCI Food Pantry, packing necessities to be distributed on the next Breakfast Run and more.

It was incredible to see how the SAR community showed up on a Thursday night with one goal: to do as much chesed as possible. We’re super proud and grateful to everyone who contributed to this truly meaningful event.
