On Ramp

As this blog gets going, I’d like to pass along a tip of the hat to an organization that’s doing a whole bunch of mitzvahs all around the D.C. area. They’re called Yachad, and I was in Gaithersburg, Md., last week to see one of their volunteer teams finish off a ramp that they’d built for a family with a young, physically disabled girl. The team — of both parents and kids — built the entire ramp in a week. The full Flickr set of their handiwork is available here.
