This summer, we are excited to bring back Tzedakah Thursdays for all of our JCC Camps. Teaching children the value of tzedakah (righteous giving) is an important part of our year-round programs. We hope you will see if you have any extra items at home or will pick up some items while you are out running errands. It is important that your child be a part of this process, so that they will know that they have done a mitzvah (a good deed) and learn the important value of helping others and making the world a better place. Each week, there will be a new collection, so be sure to look at the list of upcoming Tzedakah Thursdays below. Thank you in advance for your help! For more information about Tzedakah Thursdays or if you have questions, contact Rabbi Shari Shamah at 414-967-8229 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
