Valley Torah’s Chessed Committee is off to a quick start. This committee is comprised of individuals who are committed to lend a hand wherever it may be needed. In the past two weeks alone, students have volunteered to help with classroom set up at Yeshiva Ketana of Los Angeles, packed boxes for Hurricane Harvey victims and participated in making shiva minyanim. The committee is completely student driven and is being chaired by junior, Jacob Schochet, and sophomore, Yonah Hami. All students are encouraged to join this committee and have the opportunity to participate in this amazing mitzvah.

Fifty years ago during the historic Six Day War, Israel gained control over Jerusalem in a stunning victory and, for the first time in centuries, Jews and people of all faiths were granted the opportunity to freely live and pray in Jerusalem. Recently, Charlie Rosenberg (VTHS Class of 2018) traveled with his parents to Washington D.C. to celebrate this monumental event at the U.S. Capitol with Senators and Congresspeople.
The event was organized by the Religious Zionists of America and was attended by leaders of 25 different Jewish organizations. A group of about 30 bipartisan pro-Israel Senators and Congresspeople spoke at the event, which took place at the U.S. Capitol. The attending politicians included many of the most influential members of Congress: Rep. Ed Royce (R-CA), Sen. Ben Cardin (D-MD), Sen. John Barrasso (R-WY), Rep. Steny Hoyer (D-MD), Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL), Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV), Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-NY), Rep. Eliot Engel (D-NY) and Rep. Brad Schneider (D-IL).
Charlie met with many important politicians. You can read Charlie’s article and see more pictures and the blog he edits.
