Whoopi Goldberg, a star on ABC’s “The View,” confessed that she hadn’t been “as participatory as I should have been” with Chabad’s Children of Chernobyl (CCOC) mission to rescue children from Russia and Ukraine stricken by the nuclear explosion of 1986. She hadn’t been heard from since she served as guest auctioneer at a 1996 dinner.

That didn’t inhibit the group from presenting her with its Children at Heart Award at its fundraiser on Nov. 22 at Chelsea Pier 60.
