Donations to the Alliance annual campaign support many causes in the greater Rhode Island Jewish community and around the world. They give people hope help and happiness. This is especially evident in the support to local and international organizations that help build the next generation of Jewish leaders.
Did you know that donations to the campaign support a variety of educational opportunities for children and teens in Rhode Island, Israel and elsewhere? These include:
Programming and scholarships at the Jewish Community Day School of Rhode Island and the Providence Hebrew Day School.
Camp Scholarships and program support for Camp JORI, Camp GAN Israel (run by Chabad of West Bay), J-Camp at the Dwares Jewish Community Center and summer programs run by the Rhode Island Jewish Committee on Scouting.
Holocaust and educational programming to teach about anti-Semitism in schools throughout Rhode Island by the Sandra Bornstein Holocaust Education Center.
Infant/Toddler/School-Age programs at the Dwares JCC, including the David C. Isenberg Family Early Childhood Center, PJ Library, Eides Family J-Space afterschool program and teen engagement programs such as March of the Living.
American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee (JDC) programs that support the rebuilding of Jewish life in communities around the world. One example is youth and teen programming at the JCC in Warsaw, Poland.
The Ethiopian National Project, an Israeli organization that operates in 26 communities across Israel, serving 4,500 youth in its scholastic assistance programs.
According to Richard Glucksman, Alliance board philanthropy vice chair, and Janet Goldman, Alliance board community development vice chair, thousands of children and teens in Rhode Island and communities around the globe benefit from formal classroom education, as well as the kind of learning that comes from being around their peers and exploring what it means to be Jewish.
Contributions are absolutely essential to the continuation and growth of programs like these. The demand for scholarships, for mental health services and programming to combat anti-Semitism is ever increasing.
