A Garden for the Future

Where once lay the battered husk of an abandoned army base in the heart of Beit Shean, Israel, now grows a beautiful community garden for all to enjoy. This physical transformation is a perfect representation of the Jewish Federation’s lasting impact on its sister community in Israel. It had become an eye-sore for the beautiful neighborhood across the street, ignored by the residents of the community.

Message from Danielle Wild, Women's Philanthropy Chair

Tags: Women, Blog

I recently returned from a Jewish Federations of North America (JFNA) trip to Berlin and Budapest to see the overseas programs that the dollars we raise help fund. There were so many examples of ways that we are giving people what they otherwise would not have—community, safety, Judaism, to name a few.
