Opening the Dor is a new program that connects high school teens and seniors through philanthropy, Jewish identity, and heritage. L’dor Va dor, meaning from generation to generation, Jews have shared stories and experiences to help understand our community, our past and enlighten our future. We are excited to learn about your stories, delving into YOUR knowledge and experience, learning from your wisdom, family stories, and traditions, and how these help us to make a real granting decision about real funds.
For the program, you will be taking part in a giving circle experience, where you will be choosing a $1,000 grant recipient from one of several JFCS programs. This experience will be facilitated by the teens who are members of the Jewish Community Youth Philanthropy Board. These teens have been working as grant makers and are eager to get to know you, your stories and learn from your experience.
The program will be in 2 parts:
1. A story - sharing session: Wednesday, November 10 4-5pm over ZOOM
2. The Giving Experience: Wednesday, November 17 from 4-5pm over ZOOM
Registration is limited to 12 people who are committing to attend both sessions. There is no fee to participate. The program was made possible by generous funding from the Sephardic Council on Aging, Honeycomb: Jewish Youth Philanthropy Reimagined and the Jewish Community Foundation of Greater Phoenix.
