Jewish Academy of Orlando students participate in Mitzvah Shabbat
On Friday, Nov. 11, Veterans Day, the students of the Jewish Academy of Orlando participated in its bi-monthly Mitzvah Shabbat. For this edition of Mitzvah Shabbat, the students honored our military veterans. Prior to Mitzvah Shabbat, the students and their families collected personal hygiene products for current military personnel. The students collected toothbrushes, toothpaste, deodorant, soap, shampoo and lip balm and packaged them for our soldiers.
In addition, former Jewish Academy student, Private First Class David Bloom, who recently completed his service, came to our Shabbat program and shared with the students why he chose to serve our country.
The students also watched a video honoring all of the Jewish Academy family members that have served our country's Armed Forces.
At the Jewish Academy, our students participate in Mitzvot and Gimilut Hasadim (acts of loving kindness) as part of our everyday curriculum. Our students are taught and empowered to do Tikkun Olam (repairing our world) and to make our world and our community a better place.
