Learning Festival – 8th grade “Hesed” ‘Speed-Dating’


As part of the Middle School Learning Festival, 8th grade students presented to 5th, 6th and 7th graders about the various community service (hesed) projects that they have been involved in over their middle school years. Set up in a “speed-dating” style, the younger students rotated from 8th grader to 8th grader every 3 minutes after hearing from the 8th grader about their community service activity, why they got involved with it, and how meaningful an experience it has been. Our students got a taste of many projects and causes with which they can involve themselves as young kids, and in the future as adults too.
