J-Serve

Thank you for participating in J-Serve 2021. If you are looking for a volunteer opportunity, we need volunteers for our PL Library Book Mitzvah on Sunday, May 23 from 2:30-5:30. Volunteer here.

J-Serve 2021

Re-imagined to meet the challenges of the Covid-19 pandemic, our regional J-Serve offers 7 sessions over 3 Sundays as opportunities for teens to learn about different community causes and take action to make a difference. If you are a Jewish teen interested in service and supporting the needs of those in our communities, register for as many sessions as you like. Community service hours will be granted for attendees.

 

About the local leaders

Our regional J-Serve is a collaborative partnership between teen leaders across Houston, Austin, and San Antonio, supported by professional multi-generational leaders from BBYO, Kehillah High, URJ Greene Family Camp, the Evelyn Rubenstein JCC, and the Jewish Federation of Greater Houston.

About J-Serve

Every year, Jewish teens around the world join each other throughout the spring to make their community and the world a better place. This year, teens can redefine what service looks like, making a direct impact on the issues that affect our communities in new and exciting ways.

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. 

The international initiative is generously underwritten by The Charles and Lynn Schusterman Family Foundation in partnership with Good Deeds Day, Jewish Teen Funders Network, Repair The World, Shalom Corps, and YSA’s Global Youth Service Day.
