The Jewish Community Foundation Youth Philanthropy Board of Greater Phoenix
B’nai Tzedek redefines Jewish philanthropy by showing teens that they, too, can change the world through a personal and engaged relationship to lifelong giving. Participants learn about modern philanthropy and apply their knowledge by making heartfelt grants from their own long-term B’nai Tzedek charitable funds to the organizations and causes they care about. Whether it’s ending hunger, poverty, and homelessness, or supporting animal rescue, medical research, programs in Israel, sports opportunities, international aid, education, social services, music, and more, the B’nai Tzedek Youth Philanthropy Program helps teens find organizations working to address the causes that most concern them. They also learn about leadership, service, financial literacy, and long-term investing to use their funds for good — now and in the future.

We are a vital resource where Jewish ideas and ideals are instilled in our children and grandchildren for future generations. We strive to increase county-wide measurable participation in Jewish life with the goal of having the maximum number of members from our community involved in all expressions of Jewish life, and we nurture Jewish values from generation to generation.

Where there are people who seek peace, reconciliation and understanding of themselves and others, there exist the conditions for true healing. The post-Holocaust motto of “Never Again!” can be true only when the great darkness of ignorance, prejudice and hatred is lifted and dissolved by the love and the light of truth. Offering the vision of “Jerusalem” as an antidote to nihilism, prejudice and xenophobia, the Jerusalem Peace Memorial is “where dust becomes light.” As a German-based organization we feel responsible to help bring consciousness to the idea of Jerusalem in the world.
