JCCA grant will enhance Yom Ha’Atzmaut celebration

Thanks to a recently awarded $1,500 microgrant from the Jewish Community Center Association of America, all of us here at The J look forward to enhancing our upcoming annual Jewish Food and Culture Fest on April 30 with celebratory decorations and giveaways in recognition of Yom Ha’Atzmaut — the 75th anniversary of Israel’s independence.

The grant is provided through a special fund dedicated to helping Jewish community centers across the nation connect their audiences to events and activities that honor Israel’s history, achievements, people, cultures, and more. The application process was competitive, and the final award was determined by the JCC Association of America’s Israel Engagement Committee.
