Foundation Grant Helps Both Day School Students Grow Together

Students at Columbus Jewish Day School and Columbus Torah Academy worked together since last August to create and renovate gardens on their school grounds.  Now they are sharing the harvest with those in need — thanks to a fabulous “Yarok Together” grant from the Foundation’s Jewish Education and Literacy Endowment.  As noted by CTA Headmaster Rabbi Samuel Levine, “As a result of the amazing work by our students, Yarok’s CTA Coordinator Diana D’Angelo-Wolff and CJDS Project Director Gina Freeman were invited to present their work at the Jewish Outdoor, Food & Environmental Education Network meeting later this month.”  So far the community service project has delivered 1000 pounds of fresh organic produce to 440 people.
