Performing chesed is a timeless Torah value and an ongoing HANC tradition. In an effort to realize the principles of responsibility, honesty, and respect, and to live in the spirit of Olam Chesed Yibaneh, the Community Service component of the Student Life Program provides opportunities for HANC students to work within their own environment, and in the greater Jewish community to make an everlasting impact on the world around them.
Students visit and bring cheer to patients in local hospital as well as correspond with fellow students who are recovering from illness.
The Jewish Action Committee members are dedicated to raising money for their brothers and sisters in Israel and America. This includes Project Ezra Model Seder, Ohel Toy Drive, Sderot Soldier Project, and Shaare Zedek Hospital Campaign.
The students who join this chesed committee regularly correspond with and visit residents of Gurwin Jewish Geriatric Center.
