Our Signature Programs

At Everything but the Turkey, our pre-Thanksgiving volunteer program, participants put on their chef hats as they slice, dice, mix and chop ingredients for the accompaniments of the holiday meal. Jewish families in need and local homeless shelters receive over 1,800 servings of food as a result of this program.

Season of Giving is an annual tradition during the December holiday season. With over a dozen projects throughout Miami-Dade, there is one to fit your needs. Projects range from beautifying our community to visiting the sick and feeding the homeless.

Since 2005, J-Serve has porvided teens with a unique opportunity to band together through service. Students fulfill the Jewish values of gemilut chasidim (acts of loving kindness), tzedakah (just and charitable giving), and tikkun olam (responsibilty to repair the world). Every year, Jewish teens worldwide join each other to make their community and the world a better place.

Good Deeds Day is an annual celebration of good deeds. All over the world, hundreds of thousands choose to volunteer and help others, putting into practice the simple idea that every single person can do something good, be it large or small, to positively change the world. JVC plans and organizes volunteer opportunities for the community to participate in on this day.
