Chesed Program

Although textual learning is extremely important, the love and practice of Chesed (kindness) characterizes the ethical life of the Jewish people. "Derech" believes that its chesed program will expand the student's horizons and help him understand the need to give to others. Some examples of organized activities include working with Russian immigrants, helping the elderly, acting as role models for young orphans, etc.
