This program educates Jewish Cleveland students about the philanthropic process and responding to Jewish and general community needs

The Saltzman Youth Panel recommends the distribution of up to $50,000 in grant funding to worthy programs in the Jewish and general communities. Participants will develop their leadership and group consensus building skills as they learn about the community, decision-making, leadership, and most importantly, tzedakah.
