This is one of the most extraordinary experiences for those tough Teen years as a young Jewish adult. Post Bar Mitzvah, many Jewish teens drop out of Jewish life. This not only keeps them engaged, but lets them lead it to reach beyond their comfort zones to help those near and far in need. A fabulous experience! This review should also be considered for the Jewish Choice Awards contest.

I've watched the teens emerge from this experience with a greater sense of their responsibility to help others, to give back, to give tzedakkah (charity) in a strategic way for the rest of their lives. So important!
