Students from SINAI at Ma’ayanot invited their Ma’ayanot friends to bring stuffed bears to residents at CareOne Teaneck. Bear Givers, a non-profit dedicated to bringing joy to those in need, donated the bears to SINAI in order to empower the students and allow them to experience the joy of giving back to the community. The SINAI students were thrilled by the opportunity to bring joy to the seniors. “I’m happy that I did this mitzvah,” said Julia, one of the SINAI students.
