At 6:45am, well before sunrise, Ms. Benel waited for our Upper School student volunteers, as homeless individuals were already lining up, with their worldly goods in totes, and shaky carts. At 7am sharp, as promised, our students began arriving at the NY Common Pantry, located, oddly enough, right off of Fifth Avenue and 109th Street, and that location was counterculture.

The French Culture Club was honored to welcome our very own member, Arielle L. '21 as our featured speaker. Arielle spoke most eloquently about the iconic French martyr, Joan of Arc. Students learned that Joan of Arc was born into a peasant family in Northern France, but she rose to the ranks of heroine, soldier, and leader of armies. She was guided by a "divine calling" to lead the French against the British in the Hundred Years' War....

Junior Navi classes experienced a special program led by Mr. Seth Davis, Executive Director of IsraAID, an Israel-based international non-governmental organization. IsraAID's mission is to support people affected by humanitarian crisis, and they partner with local communities around the world to provide urgent aid, assist in recovery, and reduce the risk of future disasters. The teachers wanted their students to understand Sefer Yonah, not only as an ancient Judaic text, but one whose message is relevant today, and give them the opportunity to "actualize" the prophet's message.
