Israel and Global Jewish Communities

JVS participates with Israel and Global Jewish Communities (IGJC), “a CJP community of proud and engaged global Jewish citizens dedicated to Israel and the Jewish people.”

Within IGJC, JVS is an active partner in the Shared Society focus area where we work with our Haifa partners to improve the socioeconomic status of Ethiopian-Israelis in Haifa by providing vocational training, professional mentorship, and entrepreneurship opportunities to improve their chances in the job market. Job training is provided in partnership with local employers such as hospitals, high-tech firms, kindergarten programs, and transportation companies.

For more information on our work with the Ethiopian Israeli community, contact Judy Sacks, JVS Jewish Community Liaison at jsacks@jvs-boston.org.
