I have seen the way that the organization can change a student's life by merely participating in their after-school programs. JSU fills a void in the Jewish community; for so long, we have rightfully focused on funding day schools but have completely ignored the teens that for whatever reason wind up in the public school system. For the unaffiliated kids, JSU is a great engagement tool for them to become involved. And, for the already affiliated, JSU provides a home away from home at their school.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
