Engage teens with learning the Jewish values of tikkun olam, mitzvah, and tzedakah, combined with practical experience, to lead to their development of a personal, life-long giving relationship to the Jewish community.
Give teens the opportunity to be philanthropists by providing them with an opportunity to make a difference in causes they care about through tzedakah. Participants will contribute the investment growth of their personal fund to nonprofit organizations that they will have the opportunity to learn about and support through volunteering and social action opportunities.
Cultivate future leaders in the Jewish community as teens have the chance to network with peers, share social issues they care about, learn about investing and basic financial literacy, and develop leadership skills.
Start a B’nai Tzedek Fund to support causes you care about and become an invested member of the Jewish community.
1. Donate a minimum of $250.
2. Tampa Jewish Federation will provide a matching gift of $250.
3. You now have a $500 B'nai Tzedek fund in your own name.
