Care for Vulnerable
Care for Vulnerable Jews Locally, in Israel and Abroad
Taking care of one another is a core Jewish value and a communal responsibility.
We are a source of comfort and care for Jews in need. We support those who are isolated, food insecure, or lack access to programs that celebrate our Jewish tradition. We place a special focus on ensuring that everyone in our community lives in dignity by funding programs that care for and connect Jews in our community, in Israel and overseas.
The Jewish Federation acts as a safety net for members in our community. With your support, we are able to help Jews locally:
- Ensure our holocaust survivors have access to kosher meals and jewish holiday services and celebrations.
- Fund Jewish Holiday programming, including Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, and Sukkot, for senior citizens
- Deliver Kosher meals to Jewish adults and senior citizens
And help Jews globally:
- Help resettle Ethiopian olim in Israel.
- Sponsor tractor use for a year for Project Leket. The tractor will handle millions of pounds of produce that will be sorted and delivered throughout Israel to feed food-insecure families
- Fund hot lunch for low-income elderly senior citizens who immigrated from the Former Soviet Union, Ethiopia, South America and Iran.
- Supply 100 hand-sewn fleece baby blankets to battered women shelters and other Israeli children charities
- Provide therapy and emotional support through psychologists and social workers to help children process, manage, and heal from trauma they experienced at home such as abuse and/or neglect.
- Partner with ISRAAID, an Israeli run humanitarian charity, to build a rainwater harvesting system in Guatemala
