Connecting to and building in Israel, Belarus & Overseas
As a community and as a people, we have a responsibility not only to our local Atlanta community, but also to our international brothers and sisters. We all have a responsibility for Jews all over the world, no matter how far away they are. Your Federation supports the community at-large in Israel and everywhere. Additionally, to create deeper and more meaningful connections, the Atlanta community has two sister cities: Yokneam-Megiddo, Israel and Minsk, Belarus. Caring for and connecting to our community, even those we don’t know, is integral to Jewish life and Federation’s work. You give young people opportunities for education, camps, counseling, and social programs. You give aging, impoverished Jews comfort and security with medical and financial assistance, homecare, and social support. You also help victims of domestic violence, terrorism, and persecution build new lives. Explore how to get involved and give.
