Community Outreach
Community Events

Nishmat's goal of community involvement has led to the creation of wonderful yearly events that students, staff and the men, women & children of the neighborhood participate in, and look forward to.


On the first night of Channuka, Nishmat joins the residents of Pat for a community candle-lighting ceremony, singing, dancing and sufganiot (doughnuts).


Nishmat's Purim Carnival is a highlight of the year for local children. Students spend weeks preparing games, activities, and prizes to provide the young participants with an exciting and memorable experience.
