SCFL Visits Rockleigh Jewish Home for Annual Mishloach Manot Project

(Courtsey of Congregation Bet Yosef) The children of Congregation Bet Yosef, the Sephardic Congregation of Fort Lee, and the Rockleigh Jewish Home residents have been developing a very strong bond. On Sunday, March 17, the children and parents got together to assemble mishloach manot and deliver them to the residents for a third consecutive year. The sight of small hands and feet working diligently (with very little assistance from their parents) to put all the goodies together was moving. Many parents felt that this was an effective way to teach their children about chesed and how important it is to share with others. Upon arrival at the home, the group was guided to the recreation room where the children sang Purim songs to the residents. The residents responded by clapping and joining in singing. This was followed by the children distributing mishloach manot around the home. The residents’ were so appreciative not only for the gifts but for the fact that the children were spending time with them. The smiles and thank-you greetings the children got were something that they will cherish for a long time!

A special thank you goes to the parents who organized this event and the Rockleigh Jewish Home for giving them the opportunity to come. For more information about the congregation, please visit their website at www.scflee.com.
