Because of your generous donations to the Jewish Federation's Annual Campaign, the children at Beit Alpha Absorption Center in Israel now have new laptops for educational purposes. Beit Alpha, an absorption center run by the Jewish Agency for Israel (JAFI), and funded in part through Jewish Federations, is home to about 400 Ethiopian 'Olim' (immigrants). The absorption center creates a bridge to newcomers, helping them adjust to the Hebrew language and the new life in modern Israeli society. It supplies for all of their needs until these families and individuals are ready to spread wings.
The much-needed 15 laptops will be used for education at the Absorption Center. This donation was made possible through the Southern New England Consortium partnership (SNEC), a partnership of 11 Jewish Federations, of which the Jewish Federation of Greater New Haven is proudly a member. Together we invest in the Afula-Gilboa region of Israel, creating a significant impact in the lives of children, women, and young people at risk.
Your donations to the Annual Campaign of the Jewish Federation of Greater New Haven make this possible.
