Stand Up ABC is an innovative eight-part social justice experience that engages Bar/Bat-Mitzvah aged youth to find their place in a globalized world. This flagship program empowers young Jewish Australians to become change-makers in the community by upholding Jewish values of Tikkun Olam (Repairing the World), Tzedakah (Justice) and Chessed (Kindness).
The program helps children ‘connect the dots’ between their deep and rich Jewish tradition, filled with values of Justice and Equity, and some of the toughest 21st century ‘plagues’: social cohesion, poverty, distribution of wealth and human rights.
The program costs $250 for the full 8 week program.

“Gandel Philanthropy is very pleased to support Stand Up. Engaging young Jewish kids as they reach bnei-mitzvah age with core Jewish concepts of tzeddek, tikkun olam and chessed, and with their own Jewish identity, was one of the key considerations in the Board’s decision to award this grant. This was evident when I had the privilege of attending a Stand Up Finale this year”
