J-SERVE – Jewish Teens Serving the World
J-Serve is the International Day of Jewish Teen Service. Taking place each spring, it is a day when you can do some good, be an altruist.
The goal of J-Serve is to highlight the importance of service in the lives of teens and in the Jewish community by creating service projects in which Jewish communities can mobilize across denominational and organizational lines to make a difference in their communities and the world. J-Serve and its partners are committed to the idea that service is an important part of a life-long continuum that engages, maintains, and strengthens teen involvement in Jewish life.
Each year, teens volunteer to be on the J-Serve Committee Planning Team and to be J-Serve Committee Ambassadors to help execute the J-Serve projects.
Every winter, spring, and summer JTEEN-GMW offers a variety of hands-on service opportunities incorporating Jewish service learning for teens 12-18. Projects take place all over Greater MetroWest (Union, Essex, Morris, Northern Somerset or Sussex Counties) to make sure that there are convenient offerings for everyone.
Attend three or more service events and you become a Mitzvah Maniac! Your dedication will be awarded with a special surprise prize!
