Tikkun Olam Open House (Sept. 18th)

Want to change the world? Check out these exciting teen opportunities!

You're invited to our Tikkun Olam Open House!

Join us to find out how to make a difference in the world with one of Contra Costas Midrasha's popular programs: Hamsa Fund, Project Ezrach, and Better Together! Come see what they're all about, which is the right fit for you, and how you can make a difference globally and locally.

About these Programs:

  • Hamsa Fund empowers teens to run their own philanthropic organization - raising money for an issue they pick, then funding non-profits doing work in the area they want to change.  
  • Project Ezrach (means citizen in Hebrew) enables teens to become changemakers - picking an issue to learn about, do service for, and advocate about - with a strong emphasis on community service.
  • Better Together/B'Yachad connects elders and teens for intergenerational learning - alleviating loneliness, stress, and creating meaningful relationships.

All three of CCM's Tikkun Olam (meaning 'repair the world') programs give teens a place to connect with their Jewish peers to discuss the relationship between social action and their Jewish identities and to learn the tools they need to continue making a difference in the world into the future.


When: September 18th from 4:00-7:00pm (Vegetarian dinner will be provided for the teens at 530pm)

Where: Walnut Creek (address to be emailed after registration)

Who: Jewish teens

What: Our teen leadership teams and educators have lots to share with you! You'll learn about  Hamsa Fund, Project Ezrach, & Better Together - how we make difference all while meeting other like-minded teens. We'll be doing an activity using consensus decision-making (Participants make decisions by agreement rather than by majority vote) which is why we're asking for a small donation. The donation funds will go to a non-profit of the Open House participant's choice. 

For Parents: Parents are invited to join the Open House from 6-7pm for an information session about both Tikkun Olam programs.

We hope to see you there!
