HOW WE MAKE AN IMPACT IN PARK CITY....
Through our partner agency - Jewish Family Service who has an office in Park City, we provide funds to help ensure the existence of a Counseling program where clients are seen at low or no cost; a Senior Care Management program that incudes care management, counseling and advocacy; and an Emergancy Assistance Program that provides families with assistance when emergancies or unforeseen circumstances arise.
Through our partner agency - Temple Har Shalom in Park City, we provide funds that allow the Temple to more easily foster positive Jewish identity through their Youth Groups and Religious School progamming.
Our monthy program "Women's Lunch & Learn" is open to women of all faiths - to come together for a lively discussion of the Bible and how it relates to our everyday lives. The group meets each month in different Park City area homes and is led by Professor Jackie Osherow from the University of Utah.
Acting on our core values of compassion, charity, generosity and responsibility, we care for people in need and inspire Jewish life and learning. Through our network of partner agencies we actively seek out and support innovative solutions in order to: inspire, educate and connect people to their Jewish identity; care for the vulnerable; and comfort and rescue those in need.
Since 1943 the impact the impact we have made on the Utah Jewish Community is extraordinary. Countless lives have been affected, cared for and re-built. Because of our education and programming centuries-old Jewish traditions are being preserved for future generations while, at the same time, new ones are being shaped. Our priorities are established and carried out by knowledgeable, well-trained community volunteers along with an outstanding professional staff.
LIVE GENEROUSLY...IT DOES A WORLD OF GOOD!
