What is J-Serve?
J-Serve is the annual day of service for Jewish youth throughout the world. It is a day when Jewish teens join their peers in other faith communities, other cities and other countries to give their time to serve their communities. More than 11,000 teens in more than 90 communities and 16 countries rolled up their sleeves to make their world a better place during J-Serve 2014.
This year on April 19th, the Portland Mitzvah Network, BB Camp, BBYO, and Tivnu: Building Justice are hosting this day of giving back in Portland. Jewish teens in grades 6-12 are invited to fulfill the Jewish values of gemilut chasidim, acts of loving kindness, tzedakah, just and charitable giving, and tikkun olam, the responsibility to repair the world.
Teens will volunteer at Tryon Creek Watershed Council preserving the beauty of Portland's natural resources.
