Community Service at DKJA    

Throughout the year, our program enables students in grades K-12 – and their families –  to contribute to the welfare of others through public service activities. Among these projects are the following: 

  • The Caring Kitchen, where students and their family members prepare and serve meals to low income families. 
  • The Teen Connect companionship program in partnership with the Ruth Rales Jewish Family Service of South Palm Beach County, which forges relationships and bonds between teens and the elderly in the community.
  • Interactive initiatives to enrich the lives of children at Dixie Manor, the Milagro Center, Kids in Distress and S.O.S. Children’s Village.
  • Partnership programs with community schools, such as Pine Grove Elementary.
  • Beautification projects that benefit organizations such as the Florence Fuller Child Development Center.

Students of all ages are taught the importance of making a difference in others’ lives, and to learn to seek this kind of satisfaction throughout their own lives. Community service is an essential component of our philosophy.

Later this year, Donna Klein Jewish Academy students will participate in

  • Habitat for Humanity projects to assist underprivileged families
  • The school’s  Annual Family Mitzvah Day, during which more than 600 students, parents, teachers and staff members gather as “an extended family” to assist approximately 25 community organizations on this day of giving from the heart
  • Youth Activity Center after-school program for children, providing help with homework and computers, arts and crafts and many more recreational activities
  • Countless other endeavors to make their world a better place!
