Ma’ayanot/NCSY Humanitarian Missions:
In each of the past three years Ma'ayanot has sent groups of students to participate in humanitarian missions to communities devastated by natural disasters. Three years ago students participated in a mission to help victims of the Red River floods in Minnesota, and in each of the last two years students participated in missions to New Orleans to provide assistance to communities still recovering from Hurricane Katrina. Such missions are valuable in that they afford our students the opportunity to apply the values of chesed and community service in a context that allows them to meet people whose lives are very different from their own. These missions, along with periodic grade chesed trips, supplement our Community Service Program, which requires each student to complete eight service projects throughout the academic year.
