Join us on Thursday morning, November 7, to learn about three important Federation initiatives that are helping reinvigorate local Jewish philanthropy. The three initiatives – the Shalom Park Freedom School, the Jewish Community Refugee Initiative, and Shalom Green – are helping bring a renewed focus on the areas of education, refugees, and the environment and thereby reflect the Jewish values of tikkun olam, repairing the world. Each of the initiatives are recipients of the JFGC Impact and Innovation Fund and have brought new ideas to bear on these important social justice issues. The half-day program, which runs from 9:15 AM-1 PM in Shalom Park’s Gorelick Hall, will detail the positive impact of these initiatives on the community and participants will do three hands on volunteer projects to benefit each of these initiatives. A small panel of local Jewish women involved in social action and social justice will speak during lunch (which is included in the ticket price of $18).

Be part of the Women’s philanthropy vision on Thursday morning, November 7, as we celebrate the success of three vital Jewish initiatives and learn about their exciting contributions to the greater Charlotte community. Event chairs are Meredith Baumstein, Sara Kulbersh, and Debbie Porter.
