To help mark its 75th year, Ramaz, the Modern Orthodox educational institution on Manhattan›s Upper East Side, is celebrating by giving to others less fortunate during an intergenerational, community-wide day of service.
Members of the extended Ramaz community—students in all divisions, current and former parents, alumni, grandparents, faculty, and staff—are spending from 10:00AM to 4:00PM on Sunday, March 25, partnering with the Metropolitan Council on Jewish Poverty to collect and distribute Kosher food to needy families.
The day-long series of activities for all ages will include:
painting a mural (at the Food Rescue Program site on the Lower East Side)
cooking and baking
serving to and entertaining Met Council clients (at the Met Council facility)
collecting and packaging food for the food drive
work with Met Council staff to build much-needed shelving for the food rescue site
art projects for younger kids, including seder plate decoration
meeting with Met Council staff to brainstorm and plan marketing ideas for the Food Rescue Program
Throughout its storied history, the Nursery through Grade 12 Day School centered on personal, academic, religious, and spiritual growth has lived up to core principles of its mission: a commitment to chesed (good deeds) and engagement with the broader community.
Activities will take place at the Ramaz Upper School (60 E. 78th St., between Park and Madison Avenues) unless otherwise noted.
