Nishmat believes that an ideal life of each student should include learning Torah and doing Chessed. Because of that Chessed is an integral part of our program. Each Nishmat student has a two-hour slot each week dedicated to a Chessed project on or off campus. Projects include running a Bat Mitzvah program for girls, helping elderly neighbors with Shabbat preparation, and Bikur Cholim. Nishmat has a full-time Chessed coordinator who trains and accompanies students throughout the year, making sure that each student has the appropriate Chessed project.
There is also a bridal gown Gemach located on our campus, and all leftover catered food is packaged and delivered to a food pantry nearby. Students help bring both of these initiatives to life throughout the year. Before every Jewish holiday students make small community events for children in the neighborhood. These Chessed projects and others inspire and energize our students and contribute to the community around us.
