July Tzedakah Box Supports Jaffa Institute
Our July Tzedakah box will support the Jaffa Institute, a path-breaking private Israeli social service agency that serves severely disadvantaged children and families in the impoverished communities of Jaffa, South Tel Aviv and Bat Yam. Since 1982, the Institute has provided educational, nutritional, therapeutic, and social enrichment programs that help children develop positive attitudes and the skills to break the cycle of intergenerational poverty. The Jaffa Institute operates more than 30 different programs, including crisis residences for at-risk youth, educational enrichment centers, food security initiatives, support to elderly individuals and Holocaust survivors, and women’s empowerment programs. Each year, the Jaffa Institute provides service and relief to over 4,000 citizens. In 2001, the Institute was awarded the President’s Prize for Most Outstanding Voluntary Organization. For more information, please visit the Jaffa Institute.
