Thank you for providing hope in the form of food, heat and rent to those Jewish families in need in central Oklahoma, for helping us never forget through the Yom HaShoah commemoration and for sending our teens to Israel.
Your gift brings joy to more than 200 Jewish and non-Jewish children through Camp Chaverim, delivers Mitzvah ball soup to anyone that needs some Jewish penicillin and brings the Israel Scout Friendship Caravan to OKC. We educate through Torah Study and Jewish University. Your gifts sent teens to Israel, sent humanitarian aid to Israel and fostered a love for Israel in the greater commUNITY. We’ve enlightened and remembered the lessons of the Holocaust with the Yom HaShoah program. And, we’ve nurtured the young with PJ Library and engaged the next generation of Jewish leaders through YJP.
There is no other single gift you can give anywhere that will have the same impact as giving through the Jewish Federation of Greater OKC. Each gift makes a difference, each gift is a mitzvah and each gift is appreciated no matter, small or large. Arevim zeh b’zeh, all Jews are responsible for one another, it’s up to us. Thank you for supporting Campaign 2015.
