The group spent their day learning about Mitzvah and Tikun Olam work with mitzvah hero, Danny Siegel. They began their day at Leket, an organization that donates food to families and food banks around Israel. Everyone had the opportunity to pick vegetables which will be transported to organizations serving those in need. After having lunch, they went to learn about the center for seeing-eye dogs. Then they returned to base learning from Danny Siegel about other mitzvah heroes as well as other volunteer opportunities in their home communities. In the evening, following dinner, the group watched “A hero in Heaven,”a short film documentary has been produced to honor the memory of Michael Levin (z”l); Michael Levin was a lone Israeli soldier who emigrated from the United States and was killed in combat in 2006. The group then had a chance to discuss the film.
