What is Yad B’Yad?
An important part of Kadima is tzedakah (charity). Kadima has a special tzedakah project called Yad B’Yad which raises money to benefit special needs programs that are run in USY/Kadima regions to bring together Jewish teens with special needs and active USYers for socialization, religious education and social action programming.
Why is Yad B’Yad so important?
Many teenagers with special needs are often left out in our communities. Through USY special needs programs run in some of our regions, these teenagers are able to find an accepting community that is geared to their special needs. In order to help the special needs community, we help provide money to hire trained staff and provide subsidies to help those with special needs to attend events.
How does Yad B’Yad work?
To make a Yad B’Yad contribution, have your chapter advisor/youth director send the check to the International USY/Kadima office: 820 Second Avenue, 10th floor, New York, NY 10017
