Yeshivat Noam, a Paramus based Jewish day school, will be receiving our Communal Leadership Award. Since its inception, Yeshivat Noam has been a community leader in educating their youth about communal involvement and engagement. They host the only Jewish teen philanthropy program at a yeshiva day school in New Jersey and is one of only ten such programs in the country. The impact of Yeshivat Noam’s good works can be felt far and wide whether from their yearly grade wide chesed initiatives, annual Chesed Fair or parent-child programs. Yeshivat Noam truly exemplifies the core Jewish values of chesed, tzedakah and tikkun olam.
Anna, Julia and Noah Greenblatt will be presented with our Young Leadership Award. These distinguished honorees are 7th grade students from Teaneck, NJ who attend the Rosenbaum Yeshiva of North Jersey. Several years ago they started Triplets for a Cause, a program that addresses needs of individuals and organizations locally and internationally. To date Anna, Julia and Noah have impacted others from all walks of life including: Jewish children with special needs, Darfur refugees now living in Israel, those who are impoverished and so many more. It is clear that the Greenblatts engage, motivate and inspire others to help those in need while at the same time playing an active role in the community.
We hope you will take this opportunity to show your support for our honorees by making a donation in their honor to Areyvut.
