Teens Take a Working Vacation

Comments Off on Teens Take a Working Vacation


During Chol HaMoed Pesach, instead of a typical vacation, 81 USY teens worked in Union Beach, New Jersey, clearing land and cleaning up debris from Hurricane Sandy. At right, students move a shed on a homeowner’s property. The program was supported in part by Repair the World (www.werepair.org), Congregation Torat El in Oakhurst (which housed the students), Deli King of Linden, Streit’s Matzah, and the Jewish Federation of Monmouth County.
