Students at the RASG Hebrew Academy in Miami Beach started off the school year with a great mitzvah project with a fun-filled theme. The school’s annual food drive was dedicated to the Miami Dolphins football team and dubbed “The Fins Frenzy and Food Drive Day.”

Student brought nonperishable food items to school on September 10. They were allowed to wear Miami Dolphins shirts or team colors in lieu of the regular school uniform shirt. Students enjoyed displaying their fins gear as they collected several boxes of food that were donated to the Kosher Food Bank.

The tenth grade-art classes made rainbow-loom friendship bracelets for children living at JAFCO (Jewish Adoption and Foster Care Options) in the Dolphins’ colors of aqua and orange. JAFCO and the Kosher Food Bank were given the bracelets and food items during the school’s annual Chesed Fair, which took place on Thursday, September 12.

The Chesed Fair is an opportunity for students in grades 6-12 to meet with approximately two dozen organizations and sign up as volunteers. Participating organizations included the Kosher Food Bank, JAFCO, Sharsheret, Friends of Israel Defense Forces, the Greater Miami Jewish Federation, Friendship Circle, Chai Lifeline and Emunah.

The Fins Frenzy Day at the Hebrew Academy takes place annually as a part of a South Florida competition sponsored by the Miami Dolphins. For the past several years the Hebrew Academy has been a proud recipient of a monetary prize.

RASG Hebrew Academy is located at 2400 Pine Tree Drive in Miami Beach. For more information on the school or its many activities call 305-532-6421.
