JAFFA, Israel –  During their recent visit to Israel, a group of 10 high school students from Greenwich High School’s Israel Club volunteered their time at The Jaffa Institute’s Food Distribution Center packing food parcels for needy families residing in Tel Aviv and Jaffa. The teens were on a Jewish enrichment program supported by the UJA of Greenwich. The non-profit Jaffa Institute provides services to thousands of severely disadvantaged children and their families in the greater Tel Aviv-Jaffa area, delivering food parcels to 350 families twice a month.
