Britannica Knowledge Systems is partnering with the Jaffa Institute, a non-profit that supports impoverished Tel Aviv communities. We recently packaged and delivered Passover food to needy families.
We are also now beginning a long-term project with the Jaffa Institute, where employee pairs pay monthly visits to south Tel Aviv area Holocaust survivors, bringing cheer, food packages, and other assistance as needed.
The Jaffa Institute is a private, non-profit, multi-service social agency to assist the city of Jaffa’s severely disadvantaged children and their families. Their mission is to provide educational, nutritional, therapeutic, and social enrichment programs that assist children in developing positive attitudes and skills to break the cycle of intergenerational poverty in the impoverished communities of Jaffa, South Tel Aviv, and Bat Yam in Israel. It operates over 30 different programs, including crisis residences for at-risk youth, educational enrichment centers, food security initiatives, support to elderly individuals and Holocaust survivors, and women’s empowerment programs. Each year, the Jaffa Institute provides service and relief to over 4,000 citizens. Read more about the Jaffa Institute. Donate to the Jaffa Institute.
