Why We Give

For over 5,000 years, Jewish teaching have emphasized the importance of Tzedakah (Hebrew for charity).  Unlike voluntary giving, Tzedakah is considered an ethical and moral obligation to give regardless of one’s financial resources

To Whom We Give

The simple answer: You, the community.  We provide funding to agencies and organizations that meet the basic needs of the less fortunate, as well as projects and initiatives that benefit the community, the state and in some cases our nation
