Richard Speiglman's Fundraiser:

JYCA: A New Generation of Justice

THE STORY:

When our older daughter Anna was 15, I joined the Jewish Youth for Community Action (JYCA) board.  The board includes parents and youth participants as well as program alumni.   It was an honor – and, yes, a pleasure – to remain on the board for eight years.  By then, like Anna, our younger daughter Mollie had graduated from the JYCA program. 

JYCA is a program created and led by youth to work towards progressive social change.  It seeks to educate, empower, and inspire political, social, environmental and cultural awareness in young activists, guided by Jewish values of social justice.  By building a community based on trust, respect, and cooperative processes, JYCA creates a safe environment for examination of self and world issues.

It turns out that for many kids, including ours, JYCA membership provides an important alternative focus during high school.  But it’s more than an alternative focus, it’s also a core focus that builds important ideas, forms quality relationships, and develops leadership skills.

This fall I re-joined the board at the request of its current chair, Mollie, and it’s again a pleasure to support the program.  One way of doing that is to ask you to make a contribution to JYCA through its crowdsourcing platform.

On her fundraising page, Mollie put it very clearly:

Please join me in supporting JYCA. With a small budget, a little bit goes a long way - and a large contribution makes a huge impact. 

I agree.  Thanks for whatever backing you might provide.  Kehilla Community Synagogue provides JYCA’s fiscal sponsorship, so your donation is tax deductible.  Should you prefer to send a check rather than utilize the crowdrise web, please forward a check to Jewish Youth for Community Action, 1300 Grand Avenue, Piedmont, CA 94610.

Shana tova!

Richard
