Greater Boston JSU Service Mission to Puerto Rico

Greater Boston JSU Presents: Limited Spots

The First EVER JSU Service Mission to Puerto Rico!


Greater Boston JSU is excited to announce our first ever service mission to Puerto Rico this Memorial Day Weekend. This past summer, Puerto Rico was hit hard by Hurricanes and nearing a year later, there is still so much work needed to be done. We'll have the incredible opportunity of rebuilding destroyed homes and farms outside of San Juan. We'll be led by Eitan Katz of NJNCSY, who has over 70 service missions around the world. You can view some footage from one of NJ JSU trips to Puerto Rico here. We will only be taking 10 teens for this trip so hurry and sign up for the trip of a lifetime! The cost is $700, including airfare. 

For more information about the trip, please don't hesitate to reach out to Rabbi Yudi Riesel: yudi@ncsy.org
