The author describes KEREN MACH"AR - a set of programs that involves Jewish teens in study and work about poverty in America. Students develop a more sophisticated understanding not only of poverty, but also of the various public and private actors involved in combating it. Experiences are framed by a curriculum that weaves together Jewish texts, foundations of American thought, and personal reflection on politics and money.
