Want to get your hands dirty? Interested in meeting new people and making a difference in the lives of others? Curious about living in the Pacific Northwest? Wondering what Jewish values have to do with hammers and nails?

Join Tivnu: Building Justice, American Jewish Society for Service and Young Judaea on a new initiative this summer for Jewish teens!
