School for Philanthropy – Love Thy Neighbor as Thyself

“The moment I give to my fellow man, I become part of his world; I become a partner with the Almighty”.

The current edition of Jewish Partnership Online focuses on the “Kolot” project, connecting youth from Chicago and Kiryat Gat-Lachish-Shafir to the world of Jewish philanthropy as they learn how to raise and distribute charitable funds. Join host Gil Troy, Professor of History at McGill University, to see how this Jewish Agency Jewish United Fund/Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Chicago Partnership 2000 project is building a core young leadership group in Chicago and Israel.

For some “hands-on” charity activity, you might like to Make a Tzedakah Box with your Child or check out eJewishPhilanthropy’s Resource Guide. Cap things off with some charitable humor – Lawyer’s Charity, and an Hasidic account – Half Way to Ending Poverty.

Are you doing something creative or special to help your fellow man? Please share with us!
