At Frisch, students develop into passionate members of the Jewish community whose concerns for social welfare extend beyond school.
The goal of the Chessed Society is to enhance the lives of others. Chessed Society’s projects include: food drives, toy drives, YACHAD and Friendship Circle Events.
Chessed Days allow students to take the Jewish values that they learn in the classroom and actualize them in the community. Each student in the school has three opportunities throughout the year to participate in a grade-wide Chessed Day during which students engage in various community service projects which include: meeting with residents of nursing homes, volunteering at local food pantries, preparing and serving food in soup kitchens, cleaning Jewish cemeteries (Chessed Shel Emet), building Sukkot for senior citizens and working with individuals with developmental disabilities. The goal of each Chessed day is to expose each student to various acts of chessed in order to foster future involvement in such organizations and other communal service initiatives. Collaboration for a common cause also contributes to the social cohesion among our students which enriches the warm environment at Frisch.
Kahal is the school’s student-run Tzedakah organization which raises tens of thousands of dollars for causes selected by our students, which are meaningful to the Frisch community.
Kookies is a student run group which bakes cookies and sells them in beautifully packaged platters for Shabbat. Student leaders research and select worthy causes as beneficiaries of the sales. Students plan, advertise, bake, package, and sell the wildly popular cookies. Bake sales take place multiple times throughout the school year.
