With Federation support, 15 professionals from Miami’s three JCCs spent this past week in Yerucham, Israel, exploring new ways to deepen the long-standing partnership between the two communities. During the seven-day visit with their peers, the professionals traveled to various sites and planned joint programs that will enable residents of Miami and Yerucham to better understand each other. Each group shared the unique aspects of their community and their commitment to strengthening Jewish peoplehood.

International Women’s Day is Tuesday, March 8. This year's focus is on equality, and Federation is at work every day in Israel, supporting programs that improve the lives of women and girls. Through our Women’s Amutot Initiative established in 2003, Federation has already invested more than $3 million in innovative projects and nonprofits that empower women to enhance Israeli society through social, economic, religious and political equality.

Every human being has infinite value, and Federation’s Indigent Burial Program and Tzedakah Fund foster extraordinary acts of loving kindness for people facing staggering hardship. In partnership with local cemeteries, funeral homes and monument makers, the Indigent Burial Program provides burial plots and a proper Jewish burial for those unable to afford it. The Tzedakah Fund enables Federation to respond to emergency financial needs of our Jewish neighbors. Nearly $25,000 in assistance is provided annually through this fund, which is supported primarily through the sale of tribute cards to honor lifecycle events.
