Go Yarok! Go Green! Go Together!
Today’s word of the day is Yarok. It is the modern Hebrew word for green, which is also related to yerek, or vegetation. That’s why the collaborative environmental program at both local Jewish community day schools is dubbed Yarok Together. The Foundation Board just approved another Yarok Together grant to assure that CTA and CJDS students will continue their terrific collaborative efforts growing and delivering produce to Jewish and community agencies. So far they have put in 300 hours of community service and delivered 650 pounds of produce to 440 people.
