Young Jewish Philanthropy (YJP) is a youth program designed to strengthen the bonds of our youth in the Birmingham Jewish community. Born out of The Birmingham Jewish Foundation's Teen Tzedakah program, this new program seeks to increase philanthropic activity and the giving of tzedakah.
YJP will provide learning tools to grow, understand and educate about philanthropy in Birmingham as well as enhance leadership skills.
