On Sunday, April 2, 2017 Areyvut invites schools, synagogues, families, community organizations and individuals to fill the day with kindness. Areyvut is a non-profit organization whose mission is to empower people to infuse their lives with the core Jewish values of chesed (kindness), tzedakah (charity) and tikkun olam (social justice). We are asking organizations and individuals to commit to service programs and acts of kindness at specific times so that on April 2 we can facilitate kindness continuously for an entire 24 hour period.

Coming Soon: My Name is Israel, a DIY Exhibition on Israeli Aid
Since it was founded in 1948, Israel has sent aid to 140 countries, helping people on virtually every continent with anything from emergency medical aid to psychological counselling, educational and environmental relief. And yet very few people know about it. Now we have brought these stories together in a remarkable online exhibition, My Name is Israel, which you can use and share wherever you want. The exhibition, which launches next week, is a powerful account of some of the most moving stories of Israeli aid overseas. It follows in the footsteps of our first wildly successful exhibition, 18 Ways Israel is Changing the World, which went on exhibit in hundreds of locations around the world.

Hundreds Gather for Inaugural Service Matters: A Summit on Jewish Service
At the inaugural Service Matters: A Summit on Jewish Service last week, more than 200 people joined together, committed to elevate the place of volunteer service in American Jewish life. The Summit was hosted by Repair the World with more than 35 partners from across the fields of Jewish service, social justice, leadership development, and communal engagement. Together, participants uncovered existing breakthroughs and generated new ideas to create meaningful Jewish service experiences that address inequalities and injustices in society. Summit speakers and panelists shared personal stories about their motivations to serve; how the field can work to engage more people in service and learning; and how those service experiences can be most meaningful for participants and the local communities with which they serve. Topics for breakout sessions were crowdsourced from attendees – including some chosen in real time via online poll.

Building a Teen Movement to Repair the World – On MLK Weekend and Throughout the Year
Both BBYO and Repair the World are organizations, but they each work to fuel, build and empower a movement. BBYO is reaching 80,000 teens across 34 countries – including more than 19,000 AZA and BBG teen leaders – inspiring and training them to make a difference at home and around the world. Repair supports young American Jews acting for social change through meaningful service in their communities, reaching 100,000 Jewish young adults and enlisting 30,000 just last year in service with a Jewish lens. While BBYO’s mission is about more than service, and Repair’s is about more than teens, we’ve found a powerful opportunity in working together on a shared agenda of building a teen movement committed to making a difference in the world.

Because 10 Days Just Aren’t Enough
Birthright is an amazing, eye-opening adventure. What is also true, is that a well-designed extension program which gives participants time to reflect on their initial tour, deepening their connection to Jewish spirituality and community, will result in an even greater impact. After all the effort and resources invested in bringing the participants to Israel, it is worth our while to ensure that the experience is maximized. After being one of the original Birthright trip providers for the first nine years, Livnot U’Lehibanot began offering extension programs instead. These programs have run for the past six years, without a major sponsor, due to the determination of a team of dedicated educators and staff, with support from alumni and long-time friends of Livnot. We are grateful that the Jim Joseph Foundation has now awarded a grant to help support our one-week Northern Exposure extension, which enriches the Birthright experience.
