JEWISH TEENS FROM Monmouth and Middlesex counties came together on April 7 for J-SERVE, a global teen service initiative. The Middlesex County Fire Academy hosted an opening program. The goal of the Jewish Federation in the Heart of NJ event was to make a difference through hands-on projects fulfilling the Jewish values of caring, justice, and repairing the world.

“J-SERVE encourages teens in 6th-12th grades to participate in local causes, while also educating them about community needs,” said Susan Antman, federation’s executive president. “This international day of service teaches teens their contributions matter, they can inspire others to lead by example, and coming together makes a meaningful change in the world.”
