Schechter's Social Action Committee is a parent committee designed to bring our community together through meaningful and exciting programs. We strive to raise awareness about important causes - locally and globally - and to teach our students that they each can truly make a difference. Our goal is to provide a framework for families to get involved in short term and long term projects. For more information, or to get involved, please contact Lisa Gordon or Sylvia Haber.

JF&CS attempts to assign you to locations that are convenient to your hometown, but not in your hometown. They view this as a friendly delivery program, rather than a visiting program. Please do help a client if they need it, but they will understand you are not likely staying long. The length of your stay is totally up to you.
