Rosh Hashanah Giving

Repentance, Prayer, Charitable Giving


Rosh Hashanah is a time of hope, introspection, and new beginnings both physically and spiritually. It is when we think about all that we have done, and all that we continue to do for the people in our lives—in our homes, in our communities, and for the land and people of Israel. It is when we rededicate ourselves to our purpose and mission as we strive to be a light unto others.


Start the New Year off right by reading the stories of how Jewish National Fund touched the lives of so many this year, and how you can help touch more lives in the coming year with our many giving opportunities and ways to become involved.
