Zukerman Sheera

A parent thank you to Young Judaea:

Thank you for giving Ellie the opportunity to give back. She is loving the volunteer work at the therapeutic horse farm. Working with the horses and helping the disabled children has been a life changing experience for her. "Mitzvah gorret mitzvah". The mitzvah of helping others, both animals and children, has in turn helped her. She said she cried when a little boy reached his arm out and leaned on her. The owner cried, the parents cried and the little boy was so proud. It was the first time the child had used his arm and Eliana was exploding with joy to be a part of this "first".

As a teacher and a parent I understand the importance of being needed and how that need drives people to do more. Nothing is more important than teaching children that what they do matters, that everything they do, and say impacts others. Hearing it said doesn't compare to the actual experience.

So thank you Young Judaea for not only the adventurous experiences, but for the "giving back experiences" you have offered my daughter.
