Women’s Philanthropy POP Up with JF&CS & The Holocaust Survivor Support Fund

November 17 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

Free

Join Jewish Federation of Greater Atlanta Women’s Philanthropy for an interactive session on the Former Soviet Union (FSU) Holocaust survivor community in Atlanta. This POP Up (Philanthropy Opportunities with Purpose) program is presented in partnership with Jewish Family & Career Services (JF&CS), an Atlanta-based nonprofit focused on transforming lives through programs and resources. We will also learn about the Holocaust Survivor Support Fund, which helps meet the critical needs of Holocaust survivors in our community. 

Please join us for an insightful discussion on Federation’s and JF&CS’s impact on the FSU Holocaust survivor community. During this POP Up, you will participate in a Q&A with FSU Holocaust Survivor(s), learn from JF&CS case workers who work directly with survivors, hear about the impact of the Holocaust Survivor Support Fund, and wrap Chanukah presents for survivors. Help us keep the spirit of remembrance and register today. 

Amazon Wishlist

Please purchase a gift or wrapping paper from the Wishlist to wrap at the POP Up. All gifts will be sent to JF&CS ahead of time. You do not need to bring a gift with you. We will be wrapping the presents at the POP Up on November 17th. The presents will be gifted to survivors at their Chanukah party at Café Europa in December. Thank you in advance for your generosity! 

Meet the JF&CS team

Program Manager of Holocaust Survivor Services, Aviv Older Adult Services

Amy Neuman

Amy E. Neuman started working at JF&CS in August 2006 as a case manager working with family caregivers of older adults. In approximately May 2010, Amy was asked to provide case management services to 5-7 Holocaust Survivors in addition to her work with family caregivers. Amy was inspired by the resilience demonstrated by the survivors and found it incredibly rewarding to assist survivors in getting the services they needed. A job opportunity to lead the team as Program Manager presented itself and Amy jumped at the chance to do something to benefit Holocaust Survivors. Amy has been Program Manager of Holocaust Survivor Services since May 2011. At the time that she started in this position, the annual funding for the program was approximately $270,000 and there were three other employees, all of whom worked part-time. Today, the Holocaust Survivor program has a yearly budget of slightly over $5,000,000, ten staff members and JF&CS now serves survivors in a Regional Program which encompasses 10 states in the Southeast in addition to survivors living in Georgia.
Amy is originally from the Chicago area. She received a B.A. from the University of Wisconsin- Madison and a J.D. from Loyola University School of Law in Chicago. Since working at JF&CS, Amy received a Certificate of Aging through the Boston University School of Social Work.
Lead Case Manager & Supervisor

Anat D. Granath

Anat D. Granath joined JF&CS in 1999 initially as an intern while pursuing her MSW and has held a wide variety of positions over the years. Anat has co-coordinated the PAL program which connects children from single-parent homes with young adult volunteers. In addition, she worked with families and kids providing counseling. Anat’s role grew to include facilitation of the child survivor group, Common Threads (Second generation) and working individually with Holocaust Survivors providing case management and counseling. As the Holocaust Survivor program grew Anat decided in 2010 to dedicate her time solely to this growing program. Her case load continued to increase and in 2020 she took on the responsibility of supervising case managers.
Anat was born and grew up in Israel where she served in the IDF and received a BSW from the Hebrew University in Jerusalem and an MSW from the University of Georgia. She moved to Atlanta in 1998 where together with her husband Brian, raised their three children. Anat’s grandfather survived the pogroms in Proskorov, Ukraine in 1919 and made his way to Tel Aviv in 1922. Anat’s grandmother escaped Lithuania in 1932 and went to Palestine. Many of their immediate family members were not as lucky and perished in the Holocaust. Working with Holocaust Survivors has truly been an honor and privilege for Anat. She has been inspired by their strength, resilience, love of life and commitment to speak up against Antisemitism and any other form of hate.
Case Manager

Emily Papera

Emily Papera started working at JF&CS in September of 2010 as an information and referral specialist for individuals with low English proficiency – specifically those that were Russian Speaking. She also provided case management to 20 Holocaust survivors, most of which were from Ukraine, and planned social events for Holocaust Survivors from the Former Soviet Union. Once JF&CS decided in December 2013 to invite all survivors to the same events and JF&CS started assisting more Holocaust Survivors from the Former Soviet Union, Emily’s responsibilities shifted almost exclusively to providing case management and supportive services for Holocaust Survivors. Emily currently provides case management to 75 Russian-speaking clients in the Atlanta area, assists clients and other survivors with reparations and oversees the Alpha Omega Henry Schein Holocaust Survivor Oral Health Program, a pro bono dental program.
Hailing from Nebraska, she received her B.A. in Russian language and economics from American University. She received her online certificate of Case Management from Boston University. Emily believes it was purely bashert that brought her to this point of working with survivors after her initial meeting of a Holocaust Survivor at Cornhusker Girls state many years ago.

She has enrolled over 25 new clients in 2022.
Inna considers it a privilege to continuing working with Holocaust Survivors. Prior to starting at JF&CS, Inna worked for over 8 years with Holocaust Survivors in Rockville, Maryland and Boston, MA. She is passionate about helping Holocaust Survivors to feel less socially isolated through both in person and virtual social programs.
Inna was born in Russia and moved to the U.S. in 2006. Inna volunteered with hospice and an abused women’s program in Maryland.
