Chesed Club

Chesed Club


Chesed Club is a community service program for teens in grades 8 through 12 intended as a way for kids to get involved and make a difference in this world. Chesed Club meets 10 Sundays during the year. As a group, Chesed members identify and learn about an organization that needs help, explore the mitzvot we do when we offer to help, and then get out there and help! Visiting the elderly, cooking for the hungry, bringing food and clothes to the homeless are just some of the positive activities Chesed Club does.
