The Social Action Manual  (Berhman House)

Through passion and hard work, teenagers can make a difference in tikun olam–“repairing the world.” The six workshops in this handbook expand teens’ understanding of why doing social action is important and show how to successfully plan, execute, and evaluate a social action project or initiative. Along the way, teens learn Hebrew terms within social action, study Jewish texts that highlight social action, and read success stories of teenagers who created powerful social action initiatives, such as Shifra, the soup kitchen seamstress, Shelby, the jeweler for women in Darfur, and Matthew, tree planter extraordinaire.
