An alternative break is about service and learning, a different way to spend time off from school. We reach out to local community partners in soup kitchens, homeless shelters, nursing homes and other local agencies to help those in need. In addition to local opportunities, we travel to other locations to help terminally ill children and their families. These project embody the spirit of community and couples with our core Jewish values of Tikkun Olam/Repairing the World, Chessed/Kindness and Tzedakah/Charity.
