Judaism teaches and obligates us to support those amongst us in need. Rooted in Jewish values and BBYO tradition, Stand UP is how we practice tikkun olam—the act of repairing of the world—by giving back to our communities. This initiative empowers you to identify a cause that you're passionate about and develop your own campaigns, partnerships, and ongoing programs. Let's be a generation of self-aware, motivated change agents and make our local community and the world better places for all.
There are important dates to keep in mind when prioritizing Stand UP. These dates include hands-on training opportunities, Movement mobilization moments, registration dates, and relevant programs that tie to service. Check back as new campaigns launch and calls, rallies, and event pop up.
