Over the last few weeks, several groups of MTA seniors have been traveling to Riverdale to volunteer at the Hebrew Home nursing facility. Each group was initially given a tour of the home and its Derfner Judaica Museum, containing a large collection of art—much of which has been created by the home’s own residents.

During each subsequent visit, students were divided into groups and everyone sat down with small groups of residents throughout the home, holding friendly and meaningful discussions. Some students even sang for the grateful members of the home. The residents were happy to be given the opportunity to converse and connect with the MTA students.

The Gan Miriam annual food drive was very successful, thanks to the children and their families who donated nonperishable food.

Linden, a driver for City Harvest, came to pick up the donations. He thanked the children for the amazing job they did and explained to the children how the food is distributed through the food pantry and to soup kitchens. He took the children down to his truck to show them all the boxes of food he had already collected. He said it was a wonderful time and the children were very proud.

Gan Miriam has begun the Chanukah toy drive for Chai Lifeline. The goal is to make it as successful as the food drive. If anyone wishes to add a donation to the Chanukah toy...
