Tikkun Olam in Action!

Join us, as we feature the Israeli NGO Ma'ase, an organization that provides innovative programming for youth from disadvantaged backgrounds. Ma'ase exemplifies Tikkun Olam (the Hebrew phrase meaning repairing a broken world). Indeed, through its unique approach, Ma'ase has transformed the lives of many young Israelis while making Israel a better place. The delegation is comprised of Yossi Malka, CEO of Ma'ase, Dana Shaked, Development Director, and two alumni: Aya Fares who is Druze and Rachel Yaskias, an Ethiopian Jew.
Maot Chittim Passover Appeal! 

As Passover begins on Friday evening, April 19th, we are preparing to give the gift of Seder, for our neighbors in the Jewish community. If you wish to make a donation, to give a traditional Seder to a Jewish family in need, there are now options for donation amounts which emphasize the importance of symbolic foods at our Passover.

We are on our way to our intended goal, and are motivated by your generosity. You have the power to start us on a path of sharing and giving!

Donations may be mailed to or dropped off at The Jewish Federation. For any questions, please contact 574-233-1164, or Info@thejewishfed.org .
