About Us

The Jewish Foundation of Greater Toronto’s B’nai Tzedek Teen Philanthropy Program is a tool for teens to make a difference in the world. The objectives of B’nai Tzedek are to:

  • Enable teens to have the power to make a difference by establishing a tzedakah fund in his or her own name with a minimum of $1000.
  • Empower teens to change the world through tzedakah (charity) and tikkun olam (repairing the world).
  • Educate teens about communal and international causes that need their help.
  • Develop leadership skills and a lifelong commitment to tzedakah.
  • Offer the opportunity to network with other teens with a common interest of helping others and making a difference in the world.

OUR MISSION: To give teens the power to make a difference through tzedakah, deepen their commitment to social action, and educate teens about local and international non-profit Jewish organizations.

OUR VISION: Engage Jewish teens in a lifelong relationship with tzedakah and tikkun olam (repairing the world) and help cultivate future leaders within the Jewish community.
