Doubling B’nai Tzedek’s grants

Rebecca Asher | Posted: Wednesday, October 21, 2015 10:00 am

Giving tzedakah is a cornerstone of Jewish values. When tzedakah is given with intention, we call it philanthropy. Most people participate in some form of philanthropy during their adult lives. The Jewish Community Foundation (JCF) is one resource for adults to get involved with philanthropy through their donor-advised funds. The JCF also offers B’nai Tzedek Funds, which are charitable endowment funds that teens can establish after their bar or bat mitzvah.

Just like the JCF has an adult board that focuses on making grants to Jewish and non-Jewish organizations in the community, there is an equivalent teen board that engages high school students, who have chosen to establish B’nai Tzedek funds, in the process of grant-making.
