West Hartford students raise tzedaka to help animals

Students in Congregation Beth Israel’s Youth Engagement Program (religious school) recently presented two checks for $350 each to the Connecticut Humane Society in Newington and The Children’s Museum Wildlife Sanctuary in West Hartford. The West Hartford synagogue’s Pre-K-grade 10 students raised the tzedakah money with the help of their families. Previous recipients of Youth Engagement Program tzedaka have included Jonathan’s Dream Reimagined, Hebrew Health Care, Jewish Family Services, Mazon, and the Jewish National Fund.
