Last Monday, Rabbi Richter’s entire shiur went on an inspirational chesed trip to pack for Kosher Troops, an organization which delivers kosher food to Jewish American soldiers who are on bases both at home and abroad. Working together, the talmidim packed boxes of Shavuos food for over 250 soldiers! This included mini cheese cakes, Bamba, Cheese Its, and Entenmann’s cheese danishes. Also included was a letter explaining the yom tov of Shavuos is and what Kosher Troops does. The talmidim were inspired by the story of how a girl’s bat mitzvah project sparked what is now a large organization with many volunteers who want to help Jewish soldiers.
