JFLT extends its heartfelt thanks to the Azrieli Foundation for granting us a $250,000 gift. This amazing donation is the mainstay of the organization, as it can be used for operations as well as loan allocation. We are forever grateful to the Azrieli Foundation for coming to our aid in our time of need.
THE BARANKIN FAMILY FUND IN MEMORY OF FROIM BARANKIN
Dr. Ben Barankin is an exceptionally perceptive donor who not only established a fund for people born in the former USSR, but also gave JFLT $75,000 for operations. We are extremely grateful to the Barankin Family for its generosity. We are also thankful to Ben’s mother- Dr. Tatyana Barankin who took time out of her busy schedule to serve on our Board of Directors.
THE EMMET FOUNDATION FUND FOR HEALTH CARE AND CRITICAL NEEDS
The Tylman Family established The Emmet Foundation Fund for Health Care and Critical Needs to help the most vulnerable in our Community. Loans from this Fund go to people who are sick, people who need urgent dental care, people who live on or below the poverty line and people who face some kind of personal emergency. Thanks to the Tylman Family’s generosity, a great need in the Community is being filled and individuals who otherwise would not have access to resources are receiving the care they need.
THE HARRY AND MALKA ROSENBAUM EMPLOYMENT READINESS FUND
As part of their visionary gift to the United Jewish Appeal’s social service sector, Harry and Malka Rosenbaum allocated $200,000 to JFLT to establish an employment readiness fund. We immediately felt a true need had been identified and met. We were right! The Fund has already supported a variety of loans – in particular, loans to people who are pursuing careers, upgrading work skills and purchasing equipment for businesses. This fund embodies the very essence of JFLT’s mandate. We are thankful to Harry and Malka for understanding this and for empowering people to help themselves.
THE KORA FUND
Helen Zukerman identified an essential need when she established the Kora Fund for First and Last month’s rent. Thanks to Helen’s foresight new immigrants, abused women and many other people in dire need of rent deposits are able to access the funds they need to begin a new life.
