YULA Torah studies instructor Rabbi Yaakov Cohen and YULA students participating in the Jefferson Awards Students in Action Day were inspired by the Thrive in Joy Nick Fagnano Foundation’s focus on turning tragedy into service.  They’ve chosen to honor their 15-year-old classmate, Tsofia Mesica, who was killed in a car accident, by committing to a year of community service at Children’s Hospital in Los Angeles, where Tsofia had been a volunteer.
