Culminating a year of learning about and engaging in tzedakah, graduates of the Jewish Federation's JTeam Teen Philanthropy program presented checks to grant recipients and shared their insights about what giving back means to them and to the entire community. JTeam Advisor and Federation board member, Linda Benish, and fellow Federation board member, Marlene Herman, addressed the teens, the teens' family members, and representatives of organizations receiving grants, attended the meaningful occasion. JTeam is one of the many ways the Jewish Federation engages young people to nurture their connection with Jewish community and values and to cultivate commitment, from a young age, to tzedakah and tikkun olam.
