For Educators

Welcome to TELEM!

On behalf of TELEM, a program of the Jewish Community Relations Council (JCRC), with support from Combined Jewish Philanthropies, and all of our partners, thank you for your work as a TELEM educator in this community-wide program!

What is TELEM?

TELEM is a major initiative to promote social justice among Jewish youth in the Greater Boston area. TELEM integrates community service with learning, reflection, and opportunities to effect real change. The goal of this service initiative is to make participation in meaningful community service and Jewish service learning a transformational rite of passage for Jewish youth in Boston. Ultimately, we hope that this experience fosters a lifelong understanding of the importance of volunteerism and activism that will be integrally connected with each participant's Jewish identity. Along with doing community service, participants will learn about Jewish values and social justice issues connected to their volunteer work.
