Our Impact: Overseas & Israel

See the impact of our Israel grants!

 

2020 Overseas Grants have been given to JDC (Joint Distribution Committee) and The Jewish Agency for Israel. 

 

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.

 

We have a final lunch and learn coming up on Wednesday, July 8th at noon.  We hope you will join us to discuss challenges facing the global Jewish community – and for the Israel-Diaspora relationship

 

Following that final Lunch & Learn we will embark on the process of figuring out our next round of overseas grants. We would like your involvement in determining the funding priorities and deserving organizations.  So, if you are interested, let us know!  Thank you.

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.

Our second Lunch and Learn featured the JDC.  They took us on trip around the world highlighting areas where they are providing critical help to Jewish populations and then told us about a krav maga program in Israel that enables an autistic population.
