This Chanukah, Give the Gift of Jewish Identity: Support the World Union with an End-of-Year Donation
The World Union’s 2016 Chanukah campaign is focusing on our Progressive Jewish summer camps as a life-changing engine for Jewish youth and Reform Judaism in the former Soviet Union.
This past summer we welcomed over 1,100 children and teens – many of whom had little or no connection to Judaism – to our summer camps in Russia, Belarus and Ukraine; another 500 were left on the waiting list because we didn't have the resources to help.
Young children enjoy learning about Progressive Judaism in Belarus
Our goal is to raise $500,000 before the end of December in order to eliminate our waiting list for next year.
It costs $1,000 to send one child to camp and we are grateful for gifts of all sizes. Your Chanukah contribution will have a lasting impact on a Jewish family in the former Soviet Union.
The World Union thanks you for giving to others this holiday season.
May this Chanukah holiday bring light and peace to all – Chag Sameach!
