Areyvut is pleased to offer A Teen Philanthropy Experience, a Jewish teen philanthropy program to 8th-11th grade students at Temple Shaaray Tefila of Northern Westchester.

Philanthropy and tzedakah are core Jewish values. Participants will learn what philanthropy means and the difference between philanthropy and tzedakah. Participants will each contribute $100 and work as a board to determine community needs, develop a mission and ultimately allocate those funds. They will impact each other, the community and learn and develop skills that encourage them to give thoughtfully throughout their lives.

We are thrilled to partner with the Temple Shaaray Tefila on this unique program and are confident it will be a meaningful and exciting program for all those involved.

Areyvut will be facilitating this program on Wednesday evenings from 6:00-7:30 at the synagogue.

Program dates: November 20, December 18, January 15, February 26, March 5 and April 2.

This course is part of the Westchester Jewish Teen Learning Initiative (WJTLI), coordinated by The Jewish Education Project with generous funding from UJA-Federation of New York and Neshamot.
