Your Real Estate Transactions can Support Community-Building of Young Jewish Adults
Repair the World (RtW) is an organization of national scope that promotes values of volunteerism and service among Jewish Americans to assist those in need. As a member of Investing In Communities®, RtW can earn vital funding through real estate transactions, including the purchase or sale of virtually any property, and leases of office, retail, and industrial space. Use IIC at no personal or company expense to raise money for this organization and its important work strengthening the social fabric of communities in a number of major cities across the U.S..
Since 2009, RtW has mobilized tens of thousands of young Jewish Americans around some of the toughest community challenges. The organization partners with other nonprofits in these cities, marshalling RtW volunteers to aid in their efforts to positively impact the local constituents of those nonprofits. Participating in RtW activities fosters in young Jewish people the values of civic and spiritual duty – to look out for those in need without regard to the nature of their particular predicament or their specific group. Helping others in need is central to the Jewish values that RtW nourishes.
As the result of a strong vision and leadership, RtW has had a growing impact since its founding in 2009.
Repair the World Communities
In 2013, when David Eisner became its President and CEO, the Repair the World Communities program was already one of the RtW’s crowning achievements. He began an initiative to identify how the organization’s resources could be most effectively deployed. After reviewing 80 cities, 8 were chosen for their needs and the RtW’s ability to address them. The central goal of this initiative was to maximize efficiency by coordinating its own efforts with those of local charities, thereby complementing them and minimizing competition for funding and service opportunities.
The Spiritual Side of Volunteerism
Fostering in young Jewish Americans a volunteering and service ethic is central to the misison of RtW: to build in the next great generation a relationship to their neighbors and communities that is rooted in those Jewish values. With the guidance of Rabbi Stephen Roberts and other Jewish leaders, the organization highlights the need for volunteerism as a priority. Central tenets of the organization’s spiritual message include:
- Finding sacred moments in the service of others; and
- Connecting to others by helping and being present in their struggles with myriad life situations.
For young Jewish people all over the country, RtW offers an Alternative Breaks program. The opppurtunity to serve in hands-on volunteer experiences with other energetic and civically engaged peers is priceless. Participants carry experiences with them for the rest of their lives that come from:
- Meaningful Service, which inculcates the rewards of service into their hearts and minds; and
- Meaningful Travel and Connection through working with colleagues in other cities where they form lifelong memories and friendships.
