Tucson Hebrew Academy’s student government held its annual Passport to Peace event Monday, Sept. 17. Taking place around the Jewish High Holidays, it provides students an opportunity to reflect and to learn about ways they can do mitzvot and actively participate in tikkun olam (repair of the world). Representatives from both Jewish and non-Jewish nonprofit organizations were on hand to help raise awareness about their programs in Tucson and the global community. In addition, some students researched and presented about organizations whose missions were meaningful to them. Students learned about Habitat for Humanity, Ronald McDonald House, Trevor Project, Interfaith Community Services, International Rescue Committee, Replanting Trees in Israel, Youth on Their Own, Hermitage Cat Shelter and TRAK. Students were able to donate tokens that have real monetary value, to learn about giving tzedakah (charity).
