NCSY's It Takes a Village Program Makes Chicken Soup for BCD
Updated: Aug 4, 2022
NCSY Teens from the Dallas area met at Congregation Shaare Tefilla in its social hall and kitchen to cook chicken soup for patients in local area hospitals and those visiting Dallas for medical treatment. Cooking in the Shaare Tefilla kitchen under the Dallas Vaad HaKashrus, NCSY teens led by Chana Ben-Abraham with the help of NCSY Staff Natan and Sarah Verschleisser-Pittinsky cooked and filled over 200 sixteen ounce containers that will be frozen and delivered to area hospitals to help Jewish patients and their families.
NCSY is currently performing mitzvot through its "NCSY Dallas It Takes a Village Chessed initiative" over the nine days preceding Tisha B'Av.
NCSY teens did the hard work, chopping vegetables, buying the carrots, potatoes, chicken, onions, and organizing an excellent event. BCD gave them a jewish organization to do it for, and a way that people in Dallas facing challenging medical situations could be helped.
