Quai James Is Setting An Example For How To Move On After Making A Mistake. The 25-Year-Old From Yonkers Who Posted A Viral Video Mocking And Berating A Young Hasidic Boy, Along With A Subsequent, Equally Viral Apology, Spent Some Time Volunteering At Masbia, A Jewish Soup Kitchen.
Five hundred people lined up to collect emergency food packages.
“I myself reported the original clip to Twitter,” said Alexander Rapaport, Masbia executive director. “But I have something to learn from Quai, and that is how to sincerely apologize. I am really humbled by him.

I have something to learn from Quai. How to sincerely apologize and take it back to an even better place than it was before.”
James said he was also learning a lot by saying sorry and giving back.
“I had a wonderful experience today and would not mind helping out other places,” he said.
