website builder Areyvut is pleased to once again offer H.O.P.E. (Helping Organizations Provide Essentials), a Jewish Teen Philanthropy program to 7th graders at Yeshivat Noam in Paramus, NJ.

Participants 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.

Since 2007, Areyvut’s Jewish Teen Philanthropy programs have engaged almost 200 participants, allocated $46,600 to over 25 non-profits.

We are thrilled to once again partner with Yeshivat Noam on this exciting program and are confident it will be a meaningful and exciting program for all those involved.

Session #1: Introduction to H.O.P.E. & Philanthropy

During this initial session, participants will be asked to participate in group exercises to foster a feeling of unity and team building.  Facilitators will introduce the group to philanthropy and discuss how it can be compared and contrasted with community service and tzedakah. The group will also touch upon the notion of giving “Jewishly,” what that concept entails and how it pertains to them.

To explore bringing philanthropy and/or other Areyvut programs to your school, synagogue or community please contact Daniel Rothner at or (201) 244-6702.
