Review for IKAR, Los Angeles, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Simhat Torah at IKAR was incredible. It reminded me that the Jewish community is not dying. We are not disappearing, we just need to be met at a place that is comfortable and challenging. You have found that crux and I am so thankful for it. It was a very special night, but then again most days at IKAR are very special.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

their enthusiasm about Judaism. They don't shy away from being Jewish in exchange for bringing people in.

Review for JEWISH WORLD WATCH, Encino, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I first became aware of JWW when Janice Kamenir-Reznik spoke about her trip to the refugee camps in Chad back in 2007. I was so moved by her efforts, her raw emotion and her spirit that I knew I had to be involved. I worked with my community to get them involved in the work of JWW. We have joined the Walk for Darfur 2 years in a row, plus some of their other events. They range from academic to thought-provoking to just plain fun. Plus, the pieces they put out for Pesach and Rosh Hashanah are beautiful and interesting. I look forward to getting more involved in the future.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

they cover all aspects of stopping atrocities around the world. They work with the community and government locally as well as the refugees on the ground in Africa and Israel.
