Norcal NCSY Giving Day 2021

Norcal NCSY Giving Day 2021


New matchers have helped us move goal to $135,000


every $$$ is TRIPLED and will go directly to scholarships!

"Should one wear a kippah in light of rising anti-Semitism?"

"Why should we support Israel?! Look at the death toll from this current conflict. Way more Palestinians have died than Israelis, so it makes sense that Israel is the aggressor!"


"If there is a God, why would He let the tragedy in Meron happen?" 

These are good questions; important questions. They are the questions that YOUR teen, and 2,100 other NorCal 6th-12th graders, are asking. These questions, and hundreds of other relevant conversations, debates, and moments of inspiration, are what made this past year a year of growth, community, and support for our local teens. 

Today, thanks to our generous matchers, every dollar you give is TRIPLED to help us raise $120,000. Help us continue running exciting Shabbatons, insightful classes, invigorating summer programs, volunteer trips, and more. Even more importantly, help us ensure that no teen is left behind because of financial difficulty. We offer robust scholarships because of you!

On behalf of our 2,100 teens involved in Norcal NCSY - THANK YOU for your support! We couldn't do it without you!

Thank you to our generous matchers:
