L'shanah Tovah Umetukah to you and your families. We wish you a meaningful holiday, and a year filled with joy, health, discovery, wholeness and peace.
We recently held our first ever JAA staff retreat which was a great weekend of bonding, learning, and planning for JAA's exciting future.
This week we launched the Nuba Now campaign
which aims to create awareness about the crisis in the Nuba Mountains in Sudan, and to raise funds to support the victims who have fled to the Yida refugee camp.
Over 100 Bnei Mitzvah kids have now participated in JAA's Stand Up program
- an innovative 6 week social justice education course for 11 and 12 year olds. It has been inspiring to see so many of the alumni get involved in projects that are making a positive difference.
We hope you enjoy this newsletter, and we look forward to your continued involvement with Jewish Aid - whether it be as a donor
on our facebook page.
Best Wishes and Gmar Chatima Tovah,
Gary and the JAA team
