About J-Serve International
J-Serve Is The International Day Of Jewish Youth Service.
J-Serve provides teens with the opportunity to fulfill the Jewish values of gemilut chasidim, acts of loving kindness, tzedakah, just and charitable giving, and tikkum olam, the responsibility to repair the world. Across the globe, teens will join each other to make their community and the world a better place. Since 2005, J-Serve has been a part of Youth Service America's Global Youth Service Day weekend.
J-Serve is in partnership with GOOD DEEDS DAY, REPAIR THE WORLD, GLOBAL YOUTH SERVICE DAY, and BBYO, and is underwritten by the Charles and Lynn Schusterman Family Foundation and the Joseph and Rebecca Meyerhoff Awards Committee.
About J-Serve Toronto
J-Serve Toronto takes place each April and often coincides with Canada's National Volunteer Week. J-Serve Toronto 2017 marks the eighth year in which Toronto-area teens will have the opportunity to participate in the international initiative, thanks to funding by UJA Federation of Greater Toronto and BBYO.
On April 2, 2017, more than five hundred Jewish teens (in Grades 6-12) will unite for an afternoon of community service and improvement projects that tackle issues and causes like poverty, hunger, homelessness, genocide, human rights, health, bullying and inclusion.
