Chesed

Chesed at North Shore Hebrew Academy is near and dear to the hearts of all of our students. From blood drives and clothing drives to volunteering in a soup kitchen at Hanukkah or organizing a run to support a classmate, our students love to be involved in doing whatever they can to help the community. They learn about themselves, mature and develop a stronger sense of responsibility, and get a clearer picture of how they can affect others and in turn the world.

NSHA HS 5777 Pre-Chanuka Chesed & Spirit Day
 
In honor of Chanuka, Monday December 19, 2016, was a day dedicated to Chesed. Ms. Lisa Septimus put together a very meaningful program devoted to various activities including a Chesed project for each grade and the always exciting North Shore's Got Talent competition as the culmination of this wonderful day.  
 
This year each grade focused on a particular area of Chesed and put together a hands-on project. The 9th grade theme was Inclusion and had a Sports Day and lunch with Individualized Vocational Development Unit (IVDU), Yachad's special needs high school.
 
 
The 10th grade's program highlighted Health and Wellness and collected toys for Chai Lifeline and had a gift wrapping and card writing event. (photo at left)
 
 
 
 
 
The 11th grade worked on behalf of Israel by collecting used iPads and other electronics to donate to families in Sderot for Chanukah and then made videos for the families receiving the gifts. Not to be outdone, the 12th grade centered their efforts on Poverty by collecting different varieties of hygiene products and packed toiletry gift bags to be distributed at a holiday meal for those in need.
 
In the afternoon, the whole school congregated in the Shul and enjoyed phenomenal performances by North Shore's Got Talent (our in-school talent competition) where the acts also were chosen according to the theme of Chesed. At lunch we were treated to Sufganiyot and an ice cream bar! Yum!
 
 
The talented and inspiring Jewish performer Eitan Katz came to play at our Chanukah Chagigah. There was an extraordinary amount of Ruach among our 9th and 10th graders who shared the event with Yachad / IVDU.
 
 
 
The spirited day continued at our faculty vs. JV basketball game. Some of those Rabbis really surprised us with their bball skills!  Finally, we all enjoyed the Chanuka giveaways in the lobby. Teachers got bags and students got hoodies, and everyone left feeling great!
