Some of our pre-High Holiday and pre-Passover grants to combat food insecurity went to Israeli and overseas organizations: Leket, Israel; JDC; and Yad Ezra v'Shulamit.
We also contributed to JFNA's grant to aid Operation Guardian of the Walls during the Israel Crisis in May. Funding went to JDC, The Jewish Agency for Israel, MASA, The Fund for Victims of Terror, and Israel Trauma Coalition.
Now we want you to help us decide the remaining overseas grants. Please fill out this 3 question survey!

We hosted summer Lunch and Learns with our grantees to learn about some of the key challenges in this age of Corona affecting the Jewish community around the world.
Our final Lunch and Learn featured our own Managing Director, Keith Krivitzky. We took a look at troubling areas around the globe, anti-Semitism, and the Israel Diaspora relationship.
Our first virtual Summer Series program was a fun and engaging lunch and learn. The Jewish Agency for Israel, one of our 2020 grantees, connected us with the global Jewish people as we heard from those on the front lines of working with new immigrants and vulnerable populations in Israel. Plus we learned a bit about Ethiopian cooking.
