You Can Be a Philanthropist, Too. Yes, You!

Naomi Skop Richter

Sunday 5:45 PM–7:00 PM Bentley's fireside

Children & Families, College/University, Social Justice

This session, geared towards High School students, will allow participants to engage with Jewish texts about tzedakah (charity) and think about their own tzedakah priorities. Participants will have the opportunity to learn about the work of a few non-profit organizations and with funds provided by the Jewish Teen Funders Network, will make allocations with real money. Participants are encouraged to bring an optional contribution of $18 to the tzedakah pool. No contribution is needed to participate. Check out a parallel session of values exploration for Children "Values Auction with Amy Skopp Cooper!"
