Youngest Students Participate in Tikkun Olam

In December, the RJWECC and WHC Kindergarten held their annual Hanukkah celebration with families, lighting the hanukkiyah, eating sufganiyot, and singing songs. In the spirit of tikkun olam, the RJWECC also partnered with Second Chance Toys, and the children cleaned, prepared, and donated their gently loved plastic toys for donation to children in need – bringing light to others and keeping plastics out of landfills.

You can read more about this effort and see some photos of our young volunteers — and their families — in action in these two articles from the Gazette and Potomac Almanac newspapers.
