The right connection
When Hallie Bregman traveled to Haifa
for the Boston-Haifa Connection March Meetings, she kept getting asked if it would be work. Turns out, the opposite was true. From exploring local neighborhoods, to brainstorming and diving into philanthropy, to cheering on traditional Ethiopian dancers (check out
the video!), she experienced the trip of a lifetime in so many ways.We’re stronger together
As you gather around your Passover table, please remember that we need support from us all. Your gift, combined with thousands of others, means together we can help
those in need find a door that is opened wide to a warm and welcoming Jewish community.
