Oregon Jewish Community Youth Foundation members sit on the Mittleman Jewish Community Center stage at the group’s annual benefit dinner May 3. This year’s theme, Roaring Youth Philanthropy, set the mood for a truly festive evening. The teen-run event included remarks from U.S. Rep. Suzanne Bonamici and Professor Natan Meir of the Harold Schnitzer Family Program in Judaic Studies at Portland State University. The generous sponsors and Mitzvah Moment donors contributed a total of $48,000 for the teens to grant to a broad range of Jewish and general nonprofits. OJCYF is a program of the Oregon Jewish Community Foundation and is open to Jewish teenagers in grades 9-12.
