Ted Talks: Never Again to Racism 

As Jews, we know the pain and suffering behind the meaning of the words, Never Again. After witnessing the brutal murder of George Floyd by Minneapolis police officers and knowing that it is part of a pattern of systematic violence against Black Americans, we must say Never Again. Never again to racism. Never again to institutionalized policies that discriminate against people of color and contribute to the ongoing inequities that exist in our country today.

Federation donates 1,000 face shields to Sholom

Thanks to our collaboration with our Sovev Kinneret Partnership, Federation donated 1,000 much-needed face shields to Sholom last week. The shields were made in Israel by Keter Plastics. The company listened to medical staff at Poriya Hospital, located in our Partnership Region, to incorporate unique anti-fogging properties into the design. We love that Sholom CEO Barbara Klick described these shields as “the Cadillac of face shields.” We are so glad we can make a difference in the comfort and safety of the heroic staff at Sholom.
