Teen Benefit Committee


The annual Teen Benefit, raising money for American Jewish World Service, is planned and run by the teenagers of the Teen Benefit Committee at Emanu-El.
All teens, regardless of if they are members of Emanu-El, are invited to attend.











Want an “in” to the biggest party of the year?

Then be a part of a project that’s making a difference across the globe! Created by Emanu-El teens, the Teen Benefit is completely planned, produced and attended by teens. Last year’s event raised $25,000 for American Jewish World Service (AJWS), and over the last four years, the teens have raised $80,000. All high school students are eligible to become part of the planning committee.

Committee members are required to attend all meetings, work on their designated responsibilities, present ideas to the committee, sell tickets and contribute enthusiastically at all times. Community service hours may be available. The Teen Benefit Committee works hard throughout the year, and monthly group dinners and a successful spring event make it all worthwhile.



This year’s event will be held
Saturday, April 26, 2014, at 9 PM.


Location: Metropolitan Pavilion,
125 West 18th Street


Money raised will go toward
AJWS’ efforts to relieve world hunger.




All Temple members are encouraged to support this worthwhile cause with the purchase of raffle tickets. This year’s prizes include a spa day at Red Door, an iPad Mini and a five-class pass at SoulCycle. To purchase entry tickets or raffle tickets, or simply to make a donation, log on to the Teen Benefit website. Winners do not need to be present at the event.

In addition, the committee is seeking in-kind donations for both the raffle and for the event in general. Companies that donate will be recognized by having their logo featured on the benefit website and on the step-and-repeat (the backdrop where the teens take photos). Individual congregants who donate can be listed (if they wish) in our article about the benefit that will be in the June Bulletin. If you can make an in-kind donation, please contact Missy Bell, our program director of Youth Learning and Engagement.
