We Help to Repair the World .....
J-Serve is the annual day of service for over 10,000 Jewish teens around the world. J-Serve is a unique project that is run by teens for teens. J-Serve joins Jewish teens from across Greater Pittsburgh to learn together and serve the community. Local teens volunteer for a day to help address homelessness, hunger, the environment, inclusion of children with special needs, and much more.
J-Serve has been a fixture in Pittsburgh since 2006, and is coordinated in Pittsburgh by the Agency for Jewish Learning with co-sponsorship of the Jewish Community Center, along with community partners from local youth groups, synagogues, and other Jewish organizations.
This year, J-Serve will be held on March 22. Registration is open - we've had 100% before - let's try for it again this year! We will keep you informed if it is cancelled or postponed because of the Coronavirus.
We have been collecting microwavable Mac n'Cheese packs for Emily Britain Elementary School. The pacs go it the weekend backpacks that are sent home with the students whose families have been designated as food-insecure. Emily Britain has the highest rate of food-insecure students in the Butler School District. Please help to provide weekend food for these children by bringing your contributions to synagogue whenever you come. (We realize that everything is cancelled for a few weeks at Congregation B'nai Abraham the last two weeks of March. When we resume, there will still be a need for this food.)
