Program Description: 

B’nai Tzedek funds are started with a minimum donation of $125 from the teen. Their congregation then matches this and that $250 is matched again by the KJCFF, bringing the starting fund balance to $500. During the year, teens learn about what it means to be a philanthropist and that one does not need to be rich to make a difference. Joining with other teens, they start to identify areas of particular concern and start to develop their own unique way of getting involved in the work of tikkun olam, "repairing the world."
