One Year of Kehillah Cares


This month marks one year of our Kehillah Cares social action program.

Since its launch we have raised over $3,600, which has covered subsidized mental health services, free Shabbat tickets, free groceries, spiritual support, conversion fees, and miscellaneous errands for members of our community.

We look forward to seeing how our program continues to support those in need in the next year.

Want to contribute to our fund? Go to https://kehillahrva.org/kehillah-cares.
