San Diego Jewish Academy (SDJA) students and staff recently traveled to the tornado-devastated community of Moore, Oklahoma to do volunteer work.

“Several students came to me asking what they could do to make a real and meaningful difference,” said Alan Rusonik, SDJA’s director of Judaic Studies. “The practice of Tikkun Olam (repairing the world) is very much an integral part of the school’s identity. Students learn that each individual working to do something good can lead to a community collectively making a difference in the world in which we live.”

Nine students (one 9th grader, five 10th graders and three seniors), a staff member, and Rusonik volunteered to travel to Moore for close to a week of relief work.
