Support to the Jewish Community

The images and chants used to terrorize Jews in Nazi Germany were seen and heard at the hateful rallies the weekend of August 11–12, 2017. These tactics left our Jewish community members feeling scared, marginalized, and traumatized. We worked with Jewish leaders to identify investments that would be meaningful and ensure their community felt safe and valued. Grants supported enhanced security at Congregation Beth Israel and the Brody Jewish Center at the University of Virginia. Additional funds have also supported community-building activities, leadership development, and student-led programs to ensure Jewish students at the University of Virginia have opportunities for healing and recovery.
