Teen Benefit Committee


Temple Emanu-El’s Teen Benefit Committee raises funds for American Jewish World Service through an annual event organized and executed by our teens.
























Over the last six years, events planned by the Teen Benefit Committee have raised more than $120,000 for American Jewish World Service. All Emanu-El high school students are eligible to become part of the planning committee.



In 2015, proceeds benefited AJWS’ emergency relief campaign for Ebola and earthquake relief in Nepal. Learn more about our 2016 event »

Committee members attend monthly meetings, work on their designated responsibilities (such as choosing a venue and soliciting donations), present ideas to the committee and sell tickets. The Teen Benefit Committee works hard throughout the year, and monthly group dinners and a successful spring event make it all worthwhile.

The first meeting to plan the 2016 Teen Benefit will be on Sunday, September 20, 2015, at 4 PM. Join us and help plan a fabulous, meaningful event! You are welcome to bring friends, including those who are not members of Emanu-El, to join the committee.

Persons or companies interested in making an in-kind donation to support the Teen Benefit should contact Missy Bell, program director of Youth Learning and Engagement: mbell@emanuelnyc.org or (212) 507-9529. Donors will be recognized!
