HERITAGE FLORIDA JEWISH NEWS, MARCH 13, 2009 HDS shares Mitzvah Day with Kinneret Max Klein helps out in the Kinneret Co-Op Grocery. Students from the seventh grade at Hebrew Day School spent a morning at Kinneret Apartments as part of the school's community Mitzvah Day on Feb. 20. The 14 students arrived at Kinneret at 10 a.m. and were quickly put to work. "It is a pleasure for us to come to Kinneret and help out like this. We work very hard to teach our students that the real joy in life is helping oth- ers. We hope that message stays with them for a lifetime," said Jennifer Boggs, a seventh grade teacher at HDS. The students were placed in several areas. Students who worked in the resident- operated Co-Op Grocery kept busy stocking shelves and bagging and deliver- ing groceries to reSidents' apartments. In the library, students concentrated on organizing the romance sec- tion by sorting through the books and alphabetizing the books by authors. Students who worked in the Delaney Dining Room cleaned every table and every chair. And, some lucky students coordi- nated a Wii bowling game in the Jessie Render Social Hall. All the students gathered in the dining room for a quick snack before they headed back to school. "These kids came to work, and in a very short time, make a major differ- ence in many areas here at Kinneret," said Leslie Collin, director of development and community affairs for the Kinneret Council on Aging.
