SJEH And HAFTR Team Up For Book And Videotape Drive

Hebrew Academy of the Five Towns and Rockaway (HAFTR) middle school student Stephanie Greenberg organized a book and videotape drive for the children of the Pediatrics Department of St. John’s Episcopal Hospital as a part of her bat mitzvah celebration. She received hundreds of children’s videotapes and books from generous donors who deposited the toys on her front porch in Lawrence after she posted the drive on the FiveTownsShuls website at Yahoo.com. With some of her bat mitzvah gifts, she also purchased and donated two DVD/VCR players to the Hospital. In the photograph Allan Steinberg, MD, Chairman of the Department of Pediatrics, and Greenberg pose with just a few of the videotapes and books she collected.
