Our Giving Calendar
Check out the upcoming organizations that the Righteous Crowd community will support. This page will continue to be updated week by week. Righteous Crowd members will receive an email each Friday highlighting that week's organization, its mission, the people behind it, and how it ties to Jewish themes.
In this week’s Torah portion, Shoftim, we read the famous line “justice, justice you shall pursue.” Inspired by these words, we are excited to support an organization that pursues justice for formerly incarcerated youth. Drive Change’s mission is to reduce recidivism and increase employment opportunities for returning citizens through a paid-fellowship in culinary arts training that provides a pathway to employment.
In this week’s Torah portion, Ki Teitzei, we read many of the commandments Jews were to obey. One of these laws regards leaving overlooked sheaves from the harvest to those in need. Like this law, this week’s organization values both reducing waste and helping those in need. Social Delivery is an organization based in Israel that collects products like furniture, clothing and electrical equipment that would likely end up in landfills, but instead ensures they go to people who need them the most.
Qualitas of Life Foundation
In this week’s Torah Portion, Ki Tavo, God commands the Israelites to set aside a tenth of the yield of the land and share it with the Levite, the stranger, the fatherless, and the widow. This portion tells us to remember that we were once slaves in Egypt and now it is time to share what we have with the needy. Inspired by these lessons, we are featuring a Righteous Crowd member whose family immigrated to the United States and now volunteers for an organization that provides free financial planning workshops to the Hispanic community.
Sunday night marks the beginning of Rosh HaShanah where we celebrate the new year and look forward to new beginnings. We are supporting CADENA, an organization that provides much needed assistance in emergencies and natural disasters, giving those affected by Hurricane Dorian a chance at a new beginning. Righteous Crowd funds will be used in the Bahamas where Hurricane Dorian has displaced over one million people.
