I am raising money to go to New Orleans this December with Young Judea on their Alternative Winter Break social action program.
I have had the opportunity to attend Young Judea camps for the past 7 summers and I have learned about many values during my time in these great Jewish communities. In thinking about how I can "make a difference in my own way", I would like to help fellow Young Judaeans restore and rebuild New Orleans after the terrible destruction from Hurricane Katrina. Giving back to the community is always important and I think that this trip would be both a great learning experience and a fun time. I am trying to raise funds to help pay for the Alternative Winter Break Program as well as for airfare from New York to New Orleans.
