The Yeshiva views participation in chesed activities as an integral part of the development of a ben Torah. We, therefore, strongly encourage students to take advantage of such endeavours during their free time. In addition to various organizations that we volunteer with, the Yeshiva runs a number of their own chesed programs, including their very own “Shuk Shleppers” who are on alert at the local outdoor market to help the many elderly visitors with their shopping. The Yeshiva also has its very own chesed band (“The Shtark Side of the Moon”) that performs for numerous venues and occasions to brighten the days of so many,and a Bikkur Cholim Crew who spend their Thursdays entertaining the patients at various local hospitals. Additionally, the Yeshiva runs their very own carnivals and events for children. Character development and love of chesed is such an important goal for Yeshiva life, that in most years more than half of the Camp HASC (Hebrew Academy for Special Children) boys’ division staff consists of current students or alumni. One of the highlights of the summer at Camp HASC is a Shabbat with our Rosh Yeshiva, HaRav Bina shlit”a.
The Machane Yehuda “shuk” is one of the busiest attractions in Jerusalem, where at any moment tons of people are scouring and purchasing at the many stalls. For those in need, alert Netiv students sporting bright green T-shirts scatter about the market to give a hand.
Unfortunately many hospital visits are often-times challenging and can really demean spirit. Every week a group of YNA students go to Shaare Tzedek Hospital to put smiles on children as well as adults faces that have not smiled in a while. While children receive toys and hear joyous singing, adults love to sing along and forget about what they are in the hospital for.
