Nearly 50 women participated in pooling their resources to help fight hunger in the Jewish community. JWFA partnered with Jewish Family and Career Services, who will identify the families in need and provide them with the donated resources.
The Jewish Women’s Fund of Atlanta is dedicated to changing the lives of Jewish women and girls. The Fund is comprised of Jewish women of all ages and backgrounds who use the power of collective giving to find long-term solutions to problems and issues that impact Jewish women and girls.
On Feb. 6, JWFA will host a seminar to further explore the issue of food insecurity among Jewish women and girls.
