Etgar’s 11

Last summer they took a road trip across America, stopping in 36 cities for programs intended to help them develop a Jewish political voice and get involved in social change. Earlier this month, many of the Etgar 36 teens assembled for a reunion, picking New Orleans as the venue for its opportunities to do good deeds. That included cleaning up a trash-strew area of the Big Easy’s still-struggling Lower Ninth Ward, left, where solar-powered, affordable homes are being built by the Make It Right Foundation. During their work the teens encountered a Make It Right activist named Brad Pitt, whom they recognized from his other job as a top Hollywood actor and tabloid celebrity. The “Ocean’s 11” star thanked the teens for their help and appeared with them in a relatively low-budget picture, above inset.
