Mission

Since PANIM was founded in 1988 by Rabbi Sid Schwarz, more than 30,000 Jewish teens have experienced PANIM programs, with over half traveling to Washington, DC, for intensive multi-day leadership seminars and the rest having been impacted by PANIM programs in their home communities.
PANIM educates, inspires, and empowers Jewish youth to a lifetime of leadership, service, and advocacy on behalf of the Jewish people and society at large. PANIM's unique approach to Jewish education--integrating Jewish learning, values and social responsibility--reinforces Jewish identity and inspires a commitment to become agents for positive social change in the world. PANIM is training the next generation of Jewish leaders through advocacy training, community-service, leadership training and social entrepreneurshitraining, conference calls, and one-on-one technical assistance. PANIM is committed to helping the Jewish community realize its historic legacy to advance tzedek and shalom (justice and peace) in the world.

Our programs

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Panim el Panim: On PANIM?s flagship four-day seminars in Washington, DC, Jewish teens from around the country explore public policy and social activism through a Jewish lens. About 1,000 participants each year meet with members of Congress and their staffs, hear from policy experts, enjoy Washington?s historic tourist sites and return home knowing that they have the power to make a difference.

Jewish Civics Initiative (JCI): This year-long service-learning program is built around PANIM?s Just: Judaism. Action. Social Change curriculum. During JCI, teens create their own service projects in their home communities, study how Jewish values relate to that service, and consider the root causes of, and solutions to, social problems. More than 30 communities participate in JCI each year, most of whom bring a student delegation to Washington, DC, on a Panim el Panim seminar.

PanimWorks: DC JAM (Judaism, Activism, and Mitzvah work): A summer program on the campus of The George Washington University that provides leadership training for teens passionate about politics, community service, and Judaism. JAM?s participants come from across the country and from diverse Jewish backgrounds. (www.dcjam.org)

PanimWorks: Southwest: This summer program sends delegations of Jewish teens to a Southwestern Native American reservation for service to a community in need, cross-cultural learning and exploration of their Jewish identity. Participants develop their leadership potential, explore the great outdoors and come to understand Judaism in a new light. (www.panimworks.org)

J-Serve: A national day of community service for Jewish teens, J-Serve serves as the Jewish community?s link to the National Day of Youth Service sponsored by Youth Service America. J-Serve 2008 drew more than 10,000 participants nationwide. In conjunction with this project PANIM provides a robust program of social entrepreneurship mini-grants and a national training conference every January. (www.jserve.org)

PANIM Fellowship Program: A year-long fellowship for four or five outstanding college graduates each year, offering Jewish learning, professional mentoring, and an opportunity to experience working on PANIM?s staff.

National Educators? Institute for Jewish Service-Learning: An intensive, five-day training program for Jewish educators interested in integrating service-learning into their classrooms or informal education settings. The Institute, which is held twice each year, attracts educators from around the country who are motivated to create and expand Jewish service-learning in their communities.

PANIM Professional and Leadership Development: PANIM offers trainings for professionals and lay leaders in the Jewish community. PANIM runs a three-day J-Serve training conference every January; two interdenominational rabbinical student retreats each year; and leadership development programs for lay leaders in federations and Jewish organizations around the country.
