LONG ISLAND TEENS COOK FOOD TO FEED 100 PEOPLE FACING MEDICAL CRISES
Teens from The Chai Center’s CTeen chapter in Dix Hills (CTEEN West Suffolk County) took over the kitchen and cooked enough meals for 100 people whose families are facing major health issues – coping with a sick parent and/or child. The teens peeled, boiled and baked for several hours making chicken stir fry, potatoes, vegetables and soup – ensuring these families have a joyous feast during the upcoming Jewish High Holiday season. The food will be distributed by Bikur Cholim, a volunteer-based organization that provides support for the needs of the medically distressed.
With over 200 chapters globally, CTeen, the fastest growing Jewish teen network in the world, inspires and facilitates teens who want to give back to their community and environment. The dynamic organization is open to Jewish teens of all backgrounds. The CTeen Dix Hills chapter is based at The Chai Center (501 Vanderbilt Parkway) and run by Rabbi Dovid Weinbaum.
