On April 25, Jewish teens will again have the opportunity to give back to their community when J-Serve returns. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the event will remain a virtual experience in 2021.
J-Serve, an annual day of service open to teens in 6th-12th grade (and an amazing opportunity for teens to give back to their community while having a blast with their friends and learning about the value of service and community engagement), is a collaborative effort run by BBYO in partnership with Good Deeds Day, Jewish Teen Funders Network, Repair The World, and YSA’s Global Youth Service Day.
Since 2005, J-Serve has provided teens with a unique opportunity to band together through service as a united global network committed to fulfilling the Jewish values of Gemilut Chasidim (acts of loving kindness), Tzedakah (just and charitable giving), and Tikkun Olam (the responsibility to repair the world). Every year, Jewish teens worldwide join each other on this special day and throughout the spring to make their community and the world a better place.
By participating, teens have the opportunity to develop the foundational tools they need to serve their local community with a Jewish perspective
This year’s event, which is on April 25 from 1 p.m. – 2:15 pm, is being coordinated by the Barshop JCC’s Sarah Nussbaum-Ram, San Antonio BBYO City Director. If you or someone you know is interested in participating, contact Sarah firstname.lastname@example.org or (210) 302-6869.
