THANK YOU to the students of Beth Am’s Sabra program!

On Monday evening the Jewish Federation of San Diego was thrilled to accept a donation in the amount of $500 from students in Congregation Beth Am’s “Sabra” program. The Sabra program aims to engage post Bnai-Mitzvah students in an atmosphere of continued Jewish learning and social growth. Led by the Jewish Community Foundation’s Darren Schwartz, the Sabra students were given $1,000 and challenged to donate the money to an organization which “speaks for those who cannot speak for themselves”. The students chose to split the money between the Jewish Federation and Jewish Federation innovation grantee Friendship Circle.  

Their donation will be used to enhance the Federation’s chaplaincy program and to support the JDC’s work in Eastern Europe. We would like to extend one more heartfelt “Thank you!” to the students of Beth Am’s Sabra program for choosing the
Jewish Federation!
