Tzedakah Partners – Partners in Charity and Justice

Tzedakah is a Hebrew word commonly translated as charity, though it is based on the Hebrew word (tzedek) meaning righteousness, fairness or justice. In Judaism, tzedakah refers to the religious obligation to perform charity, and philanthropic acts, which Judaism emphasizes are important parts of living a spiritual life. The York JCC Tzedakah Partners, our partners in charity and justice, are the leading givers of our annual giving program.

Leadership York

Leadership for Diverse Schools

Leadership for Diverse Schools (LDS), a Leadership York program presented in collaboration with the York Jewish Community Center diversity programs, brings together York County educators to:

  • Enhance their leadership skills
  • Become more aware of their personal biases
  • Better understand how valuing and embracing diversity is an integral part of a school’s success
  • Have an opportunity to share ideas and seek different perspectives from their peers in other York County schools
  • Be advocates for diversity within their school and district
Throughout the year, the class learns more about the major religions of York County, African-American and Latino cultures, and working with exceptional students, whether students with learning disabilities or identified as gifted. The class also gains knowledge of sexual orientation and socio-economic biases. Most importantly, participants meet with prior LDS graduates from their district to continue to develop and adapt their district’s plan for embracing diversity.
