Jewish Teen Philanthropy

Stepping Up:  Jewish Teen Philanthropy at TBI

Groups of teens in synagogues, JCC’s, and Jewish organizations across Long Island are stepping up to become philanthropic leaders through an exciting new project sponsored by The Jewish Teen Funders Network (JTFN).

This program is led by Rabbi Michael Mishkin and TBI’s Youth Director, Donna Wexler.  The program meets once a month for pizza, learning, and discussions on Tuesday nights from 6:10 PM – 8:10 PM and is open to students in 9th through 12th grade.  To join you must either be registered in the Hebrew High and/or be a member of USY.  Not a member of USY?  It’s easy to join.

The teens will learn about tzedakah, non-profit organizations, and issues facing Long Island Residents in need.  They will also learn about and visit Jewish agencies on Long Island. Based on their research, the teens decide which agencies will be awarded a financial grant.

If you would like to sign up or would like more information, please contact:

Rabbi Mishkin (rabbimishkin@tbiport.org) or Donna Wexler (donna_usy@yahoo.com).
