OTHER EXAMPLES OF OUR IMPACT THIS YEAR...
Year-round Israeli Emissary (Shlicha) – Each year, Israel sends emissaries into communities around the world to strengthen Jewish identity and connection to Israel. Talia Goldberg, our shlicha, will serve as a year-round resource at Temple Har Shalom and in our community, as well as working with our synagogues and social service partners.
Sleep-away Camp Scholarship Fund- One of the greatest keys to ensure the Jewish future is for young people to have a Jewish Summer camp experience. Camp is a place where life-long friendships are made, and strong connections to Jewish Identity are established.
No Place For Hate and anti-Semitism – The Federation has taken an active role in the community working with government officials, law enforcement, faith leaders, school districts, and parents to initiate education around anti-Semitism, hate, and bias – using No Place for Hate curricula provided by the ADL.
LIVE GENEROUSLY...IT DOES A WORLD OF GOOD!
