Y.U. students help Honduras

Y.U.

Sixteen undergraduate students from Yeshiva University are traveling with American Jewish World Service (AJWS )to Las Bendiciones in Central Honduras in January as part of the university’s first Alternative Break, a new humanitarian mission.
Las Bendiciones is a remote village in the province of San Jeronimo with no electricity. The Yeshiva University group will stay in the village for the week and work alongside community members to build a school that should be finished within the week.
While there, students will interact with the villagers, engage in Jewish text studies, and learn about issues relevant to the developing world.
Upon their return, the 16 students will initiate follow-up projects, including fundraising, raising awareness about poverty, AIDS, fair trade, etc.

Wow-
I could just feel the cynicism oozing from this one. Yes, mr. Yeshiva orthodoxy, some people actually care about sickness and disease the world over-and want to help the best they can. Kudos to the YU students- may they go from strength to strength!

This is just another example of Richard Joel and his gang trying to impose their leftist views on the roshei yeshiva
in the hope of making them become non-entities. This was brought out in the Jewish Week article last week
