Midnight Run

Sunday, November 11

The Midnight Run is Bet Torah's way of helping the homeless in Manhattan. We travel by bus at night into the city to deliver much-needed food and clothing to those who are less fortunate. The homeless look forward to our support every year.

Teens Cook Dinner for Guests from the ESP

Sunday, December 2

Bet Torah will be hosting 15-20 people who live locally, but cannot afford food and shelter through the winter from the Emergency Shelter Partnership (ESP) all week.  Sunday, the first night of Hannukah, is time for teens to get involved. Help us spread the light!

PAST PROJECTS:

Teen Madrichim Volunteers for High Holy Days

Rosh Hashanah, Thursday, September 21 and Friday, September 21 and Yom Kippur, Saturday, September 30, 10:30 a.m. - 12:45 p.m. 

Teens in 8th-12th grade are invited to volunteer as madrichim (teacher's helpers), being role models and creating a positive environment in our High Holy Day programs for children.

Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Mitzvah Makers Walk

Our teens and families are invited to join the Bet Torah Nursery School for the American Cancer Society's Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk. Last year the team raised over $7,000 and was one of the top-ten fundraising teams. 

TEEN VOLUNTEERS FOR PURIM CARNIVALS

We need our older youth to serve their community by helping with both carnivals. 

We'll need lots of help setting up the week before, and Saturday night before the carnival. For the first carnival, we need volunteers in 9th-12th grade to run booths, and 7th-8th graders to serve as booth assistants (this is a change from last year, but this year we’re having more games 5th-7th graders will themselves enjoy). You can sign up for a shift to enjoy part of the carnival yourself, or for the whole time if that’s your preference.

For the second carnival, we need teens in 7th-12th to sing and dance with our guests, act out the play, run the booths, and guide our guests in enjoying the carnival games.

It’s first come, first serve, so sign up ASAP. 

VOLUNTEER FOR HABITAT FOR HUMANITY

We are proud to be partnering with our friends at J-Teen Leadership again this year as we build throughout Westchester to honor those who lost their lives in the September 11th attacks.
