Masada College families rallied together to support one of our own, the Reinhardt family, who are traveling to Fiji later this month to provide much-needed audiological assistance to pediatric cases in Savusavu. Families generously donated stationery items, and students in the ELC and Junior School gave up their lunchtime to make care packs that will be taken to Fiji and distributed to the children. Thank you Masada families for your generosity, thank you, children, for this beautiful mitzvah, and to the Reinhardt family, Behatslacha and Tsetchem Leshalom – may you go in peace and succeed!
