JewGood Hartford Takes a Bite Out of Hunger
JewGood Hartford is a giving circle that empowers young professionals of all backgrounds to engage in philanthropy and make a difference in the world. Inspired by tikkun olam and the rich tradition of Jewish values, JewGood Hartford is committed to diversity and inclusion and is open to all who feel or want to feel a connection to Jewish community.
JewGood launched its kickoff event at FoodShare in Feb. 2019. Over 70 young professionals sorted donated food and learned about FoodShare’s fight against hunger in Greater Hartford. In its inaugural year, JewGood Hartford engaged more than 125 participants.
Through social, educational, and volunteer events, members build strong connections with one another. These days, JewGooders are exploring philanthropy on Zoom and helping important causes at socially-distanced events.
JewGood Hartford Commemorates Yom Hashoah
JewGood Hartford Committee Member Devorah Donnell recently moderated a compelling virtual talk about how her cousin, Renia, and Renia’s mother survived the Holocaust with Oskar Schindler’s help. More than 80 participants listened to Devorah and her family members describe Renia’s story of tragedy, perseverance and hope, which is chronicled in Renia’s book, My Survival: A Girl on Schindler’s List. The event commemorated Holocaust Remembrance Day, a solemn day of remembrance, education and mourning for the more than six million Jews murdered by the Nazis in World War II.
