The delegates have two primary responsibilites: selecting the recipient organizations for the Religious School’s weekly tzedakah collection (based on the suggestions of their respective classes) and publishing of a newspaper, The Prophet’s Voice. The Student Council, acting as a voice of student opinion, has the major responsibility for the selection of the tzedakah organizations.
For the 2012-2013 school year, the council announced the following as the target organizations to receive tzedakah collections: Yorkville Common Pantry, Meals on Wheels and NATAL. By this May, each organization will have been the recipient of collections over a set period of time. Council members are informed about the recipients and recognize the humanitarian endeavors performed by all of them.
