Earlier this month, three- and four-year-old students at the Temple Sholom’s Selma Maisel Nursery School in Greenwich concluded their year by learning firsthand about tzedaka.  The children brought in from home all the items usually needed by day campers and used them to fill summer camp backpacks for children in need. The Starfish Connection, a non-profit organization that narrows the achievement gap by providing economically disadvantaged students with much-needed resources, then made a special visit to the school to pick up the backpacks, thank the children for their donations, and let them know that tzedaka can begin at any age.
