The Religious School of Congregation Emanu-El has a long tradition of supporting the work of organizations working for social justice through weekly tzedakah donations made by its students.
Donation organizations are selected by our
Religious School Student Council representatives.
In 2015-2016, our recipients were:
- New York Common Pantry
Students raised nearly $1,500 for New York City’s largest, nonsectarian, neighborhood-based provider of emergency food.
- International Rescue Committee
For our second collection, students raised $989.88, which will benefit the organization’s refugee relief efforts.
For our final collection of the year, students helped support Jewish women suffering from breast and ovarian cancer with more than $600 in funds.
Recipients from previous years include:
