Iris Teen Tzedakah Program Description:
The Iris program is a 1 year program open to high school freshman and sophomores. The program focuses on philanthropy, Jewish education and leadership. Iris Advisors will explore how our Jewish community responds to Jewish and other people in need locally, globally, and in Israel.
You, along with every Iris Advisor, will contribute a minimum of $250 of your own money into a "pool". Those funds will be matched by the Herb & Milly Iris Youth and Family Philanthropy Endowment. Your cohort will oversee a philanthropic fund and decide how to allocate the money to programs and needs that interest you. Over the course of the year you will take part in important meetings with Jewish community leaders, philanthropists and experts who will teach you about our community and the values and traditions of Jewish giving.
The cohorts meet on average once a month at The Jewish Federation of Metrowest NJ- 901 Route 10 Whippany, NJ- for two hours on weeknights.
This program will ultimately give you a truly valuable gift - the power to make a difference!
