The B’nai Tzedek program introduces B’nai Mitzvah-age youth to charitable giving by allowing them to open their own philanthropic funds at the Foundation. The program teaches about the needs in the Jewish community and the organizations that help meet those needs. It empowers teens to make a positive difference in the world.
Using a portion of his/her B’nai Mitzvah gifts, your child makes a minimum donation of $125 to open a fund and the Foundation donates $375 for a total donation of $500.
- Every B’nai Tzedek participant earns investment income for his/her fund
- Every year participants can grant 10% of the fund to a Jewish organization either locally or in Israel
- Anyone can add to the fund at any time
