Eighth Grade Tzedek League
“Justice, justice shall you pursue.” — Deuteronomy 16:20
Our Eighth Grade Tzedek League trains students to be leaders in making change. In addition to providing a more frequent and deeper volunteer experience at the organization of their choice, this program teaches students about different methods of working toward social justice, including fundraising, advocacy, education and community organizing. Tzedek League meets two or three times per month, including a volunteer session and a Sunday Summit where the students learn about other methods of pursuing justice and plan the ways they intend to help the organization that they chose.
