Israel at 70: Post Mission Community Volunteer Project

We are bringing the good energy from the Greater Miami Jewish Federation’s Israel at 70 mission home, coming back together to volunteer. We packed over 28,000 protein fortified meals for the hungry in our community. Great to see everyone. Loved meeting all of the kids too. TY to the Greater Miami Jewish Federation’s Jewish Volunteer Center for organizing the project. TY to Aventura Turnberry Jewish Center for serving as the host location. #greatermiamijewishfederation #jewishvolunteercenter #israelat70miami

In modern Jewish circles, tikkun olam has become synonymous with the notion of social action and the pursuit of social justice.
