NA’AMAT AWARDED GRANT FOR ABBA PROGRAM
Join Us at the Virtual Grant Presentation Ceremony!
About the the Award
NA’AMAT is a grant recipient of the Hebrew College Jewish Teen Foundation of Greater Boston. This year, the 54 students in the program sat on 4 boards and chose to focus on organizations devoted to the following issue areas: education inequity, domestic abuse, criminal justice and pediatric cancer.
NA’AMAT USA was selected out of 56 proposals to receive a grant for our ABBA Program. The Center for Fathers was founded in 2020 to provide training and personal support for fathers coping with parental challenges. NA’AMAT was the first organization in Israel that treated violent couples based on the unique concept that if women want to defend women, it is important that we also treat the man.
NA’AMAT has always been identified as a movement active in the struggle for the empowerment of women. Within this struggle, NA’AMAT has always advocated a holistic concept and endeavored to provide a response to all the “players” in the complex and challenging puzzle of the family and relations between the sexes.
For those who are able to join, we are looking forward to virtually seeing you at the grant presentation ceremony on June 2 at 6:30pm ET. We ask that anyone who is joining from your organization (and beyond!) please RSVP. This is a community event, so feel free to share the invite with anyone- even as far as your own websites, newsletters, and social media pages. We are so proud of our JTFGBers and happy to share what they’ve been doing far and wide.
We are all so excited to celebrate another year of of JTFGB- especially making our way through it completely online in what wasn’t always the easiest of times. We are thrilled to be supporting all of you, such diverse and amazing organizations, doing important work across all different communities and can’t wait to see what’s next.
