are helping so many people of all different backgrounds.
You are giving a lifeline to seniors whose family members and friends have passed away.
You are helping to ensure that the children of struggling single parents have the same opportunity to get a meaningful Jewish education as the children of more financially stable families.
You are helping to teach young people about the value of helping others, because your financial support goes into social justice projects that impact the wider community. And our young people are almost always involved in these projects.
