Introducing Youth to Tzedakah Mission Statements

This material was developed as the culmination of the inaugural Western Massachusetts B’nai Tzedek Shabbaton in December 2003. Various activities and workshops on Shabbat, Saturday evening, and early Sunday morning flowed into the mission statement workshop. By the time participants got to this point, they had opportunities to talk with peers in a general way about priorities and thoughts about tikkun olam and their own identities, they had experienced two workshops on aspects of philanthropy and the “Torah of Money”, and they had participated in an extended simulation of philanthropists meeting organizational leaders.
