What is Stand Up ABC (And Be Counted)?
Stand Up ABC is an innovative social justice experience that engages youth and provides them with a platform to find their voice in a globalised and ever-changing world. Our flagship program empowers young Jewish Australians to become leaders in their community who are guided by Jewish values of Tikkun Olam (Repairing the World), Tzedakah (Jusitce) and Chessed (Kindness) to create positive change in the world.

Stand Up ABC promotes its participants to critically consider how Jewish values of justice, equity and equality can assist in the fight against some of the toughest 21st century ‘plagues’ including poverty, climate change and social injustice.

“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”
