Under the direction of Allison Meshwork and Nicky Rosen, the Thornhill Woods Shul is proud to announce the formation of “Leebe: The Thornhill Woods Children’s Chesed Project” (in memory of Leiby Kletzky).
At the very core, our aim is to help youngsters recognize and embrace their own abilites to contribute to society in meanigful ways through acts of kindess and goodness. Having children involved in chesed will help them to build their own self worth and become more sensitive to the needs of others, all while fulfilling our collective mission of being “a light unto the nations”. Rasing thoughtful and kind children to be caring and giving adults begins at a young age through enjoyable opportunities to help others, and that is what Leebe offers our youth. (See full schedule below)
Leebe was started in an effort to honour the late Leiby Kletzky. Leebe is our attempt to bring more light into the world through the next generation.
The group will meet bi-monthly to start and will take part in creative fundraisers, various collections for needy organizations and groups and much more!
See below for a list of Chesed events that have been planned.
