During an early morning meeting, representatives from MSLTI gathered to allocate the nearly $650 of Tzedakah funds collected by Davis Academy Middle School and 1st grade students (whose grade level Tzedakah theme is that of "water") for hurricane relief. After meaningful discussion the students, with guidance from Rabbi Micah and Mrs. Shafron, selected the organization NECHAMA. As NECHAMA's mission states, "Our work is rooted in the Jewish value of Tikkun Olam. We offer help to all people affected by disaster on the basis of need regardless of religious affiliation." It was this part of NECHAMA's mission that most resonated with our MSLTI decision-makers.
