"Major Scheinfeld, can you come with us to visit veterans at the VA NY Harbor Healthcare facility?" At first students and the Major played games with the Vets including poker, pool, chess, foosball. There was some singing too, as a few students accompanied a Veteran, as she strummed on her guitar. Then there were conversations with stories of loss and fear, always with pride, and humor too. The Veterans shared ...

The Upper School students listened in awe as the Major Moshe Scheinfeld, Ramaz '83, spoke about "Serving and Sacrifice," a simply worded phrase with an overwhelming message in commemoration of Memorial Day. Sacrifice, he explained, is the harsh reality that comes with Serving our nation, preserving our freedoms, and guarding our way of life...

Teen Scene is a new program that started this year. Teenagers, regardless of their "abilities," have very particular needs, unlike their younger or older friends or relatives. Teen Scene is done in partnership with Friendship Circle and meets every Thursday, as a club of sort. We bake cookies, do craft projects that address an American or Jewish holiday, but the Ikkar is we Talk Teen Talk. "How was your day today" begins every session, and no holds barred. Tough exams are noted, unfair grades, a disagreement with a friend, a happy moment, or a scary one too...

Kol hakavod to students and faculty members who participated in Sunday's Friendship Walk & Carnival for Friendship Circle and showed their support for children with special needs. They walked the walk, but most important, did the mile TOGETHER with their special friends at the carnival and beyond. Laughter and cheers were heard throughout the day's events. Rabbi Albo and his family deserve a special Hakarat Hatov. Lying flat down on the hard cement with the trust that the bikes would jump high over him, a test of emunah for sure!! But it was the spirit of doing good that the Rabbi and all participants added. Taking the time to offer friendship is what the Circle is all about. M'chayil L'chayil!

RamCorps students worked at The Bronx Choice Pantry. As Choice Pantry volunteers they helped provide free grocery packages for food-insecure families. The word choice took on new meaning as they chose products that complemented their cultural preferences and to "choose" underscores independence. Our students gained a new appreciation for the precious freedom to choose at the Pantry...
