Times Series: JCoss students pick up their Yoni Jesner Awards JCoss students pick up their Yoni Jesner Awards

A group of students have been honoured for their volunteering efforts in the Jewish community.

Pupils from JCoss, Hasmonean High School and Langdon Brady Club were among the winners at the Yoni Jesner Awards.

The award scheme, coordinated by the Jewish Volunteering Network (JVN), encourages young people to take part in 50 hours of volunteering work.

At the awards ceremony, guests were invited to participate in at least one “microvolunteering” activity including making an origami crane for Cranes for Cancer charity, and writing a postcard to Israeli soldiers whose lives have been affected by their experience of conflict.

JVN director Leonie Lewis said: “Microvolunteering demonstrates that even very small acts that only take a few minutes can make a huge difference to the lives of others. This fits so well with the core values of the Yoni Jesner Awards and the JVN.”
