Issues of social justice and freedom rightly dominate the news worldwide.
But today, Masorti Israel must overcome the ongoing challenges posed by the Covid-19 crisis.
According to Rebecca Caspi, head of the Jewish Federations’ Jerusalem office, “nonprofit groups in Israel are reeling from the combination of the coronavirus and uncertainty around government funding for the last year and a half.” As Israel emerges from its lockdown, it’s left with devastating economic impacts, including a 26% unemployment rate.
To continue its leadership role in bringing the pluralistic values of Torah alive, and in creating a more just Israeli society, Masorti Israel relies on devoted supporters like you.
Our Matching Gift Campaign now stands at $47,000, nearly at our goal of $50,000. Take a stand for greater freedom and justice in Israel, today. Your gift turns $50,000 to $100,000. With your help:
- Jews of all backgrounds and genders will be able to pray without harassment at the Kotel in way that is meaningful to them.
- Weddings and conversions officiated by Masorti-Conservative rabbis will be recognized by the government,
- All Jews, including women and teens with special needs, will count towards the minyan,
- Jews from Uganda will be allowed to study in Israel and make Aliyah.
By supporting the sacred work of Masorti Israel, you will be helping our Israeli brothers and sisters in their struggle to ensure an inclusive Jewish future. The Orthodox Movement has the government to sustain it in this time of crisis. But the government is not there for Masorti Israel. Masorti has only caring and committed supporters such as you.
At whatever level you are able, a generous gift to the Masorti Israel Matching Gift Emergency Appeal will go far to sustain pluralistic Judaism in Israel and create a more just and free Israeli society for generations to come.
