Planting at MetroWest’s Alex Aidekman Jewish Community Campus in Whippany

The Jewish Federation of Greater MetroWest’s Center for Volunteerism and its Holocaust Council participated in the Daffodil Project on Sunday, October 24. The project’s goal is to build a living Holocaust remembrance by planting 1.5 million daffodils around the world in memory of the 1.5 million children who died during the Holocaust, and in support of children suffering in humanitarian crises in the world today. Locally, volunteers planted 1,000 daffodils throughout the greater MetroWest community. Participants were also welcome to plant them at home.

Students from Congregation B’nai Israel’s Blanche Bayar religious school in Millburn plant daffodils.

Debra and Seth Cohen and Carrie Jaffe chaired the program. Learn more at Jfedgmw.org/daffodil-project.
