Jewish Teenagers Participate in a Day of Service
More than 170 Jewish teens from throughout Miami-Dade participated in J-Serve 2020, a day of service and learning on Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, hosted by Federation Jewish Volunteer Center and co-sponsored by Federation Jewish Community Relations Council, Repair the World Miami, BBYO and NAACP. The program brought together students from the Jewish and African American communities to engage with each other, exchange views on critical social issues and participate in service projects. They also heard from community leaders who spoke about the importance of honoring the legacy of Dr. King, listened to the experiences of a man who overcame homelessness and were energized by Senator Oscar Braynon II’s message about advocating for social justice and how small acts of service can transform communities.
