We Shine Together
In a year that feels profoundly dark for so many members of our community, we are eager to share with you the stories of institutions and people who continue to act as beacons of light.
In our collective struggles to overcome the challenges of 2020 – from threats to the security of the Jewish community and societal unrest, to the spread of COVID-19 and the subsequent isolation – we are unbelievably proud and humbled to stand alongside steadfast Jewish institutions that saw these challenges as opportunities to better serve the community we love.
In the coming weeks, we will introduce you to Jewish organizations that touch every facet and demographic of Jewish life. You will experience their tenacity and ingenuity first-hand. You’ll see inside schools that have adapted their classrooms for in-person and remote learning; you’ll walk with us through the seemingly empty halls of our community center to learn about how community transcends physical spaces; and you’ll sit alongside displaced workers as they navigate a challenging employment environment.
But this merely scratches the surface. The breadth and depth of JewishColumbus’ reach within the Jewish community – and the broader Central Ohio community – has taken on a sharpened sense of importance.
Most importantly, we hope these stories serve as a reminder that you, too, are a ray of light. When you give to JewishColumbus, we truly shine together in a world that feels eclipsed. Every donation, no matter how small or large, makes an impact. Can we count on you to give this year?
You can help the JewishColumbus – and so many more local Jewish institutions – when you give. We support the Jewish Community at every stage and facet of life.
