Our June campaign is out the starting gate. And we hope you’ll want to participate.
For a decade now, your faith in our family’s desire not just to remember Jonah but to honor his memory by bringing as much good into the world as we can, well you’ve made that happen.
And you can make that happen again.
Here’s what longtime donor Sally Winter recently wrote us:
I never was lucky enough to know Jonah. You might ask then why have I continued to support this foundation? I didn’t know Jonah but I have had the opportunity to learn with Jonah’s mom at URJ kallot. I have had the chance to watch Jonah’s dad lead services and listen to him teach. I think one of the most difficult experiences in life must be losing a child. Billy and Ellen have turned their tragedy into a beautiful remembrance. The Jonah Maccabee Foundation continues to honor Jonah and do so much good in areas that were important in his life. To me, action is important. As Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel said: “For many of us the march from Selma to Montgomery was about protest and prayer. [For me,] our march was worship. I felt my legs were praying.'” I feel that by continuing to support this foundation, I am praying with my feet. It is an honor and a privilege to be able to do so.
It is we who are honored and privileged to have each of you marching with us. Your donation to our “We’re 10 Years Old!” campaign will be used in the coming year to help in so many different ways. [If you’d like to know how we spent this past year’s donations, please visit https://mailchi.mp/jonahmac/10-years-old.]
Thank you for caring and for supporting our “We’re 10 Years Old!” campaign.
And don’t forget …
