More Jews than ever before have the freedom, time, wealth, health, exposure, and confidence to seriously address local, national and global issues. And for many of us, focusing our resources on these issues has become a sacred opportunity to improve social, economic and cultural conditions for our families, our neighbors and our world. An extraordinary opportunity to live a valuable, generous life.
