In the past I have said that Areyvut annually partners with 200 agencies. Tomorrow I will be sending an e-mail to rabbis in Bergen County reminding them about the breakfast and encouraging them to attend and inform their congregants. It has been a while since I looked at the numbers of agencies we work with and before I tell the rabbis we work with 200 annually I want to just want to check the numbers. So below are agencies that we have directly worked with to date this year since January 1, 2013. A * indicates that we received compensation for the program and a + means that they participated in more than one Areyvut program since January 1st. I have only included concrete programs that have taken place. Most but not all of these are from Bnai Mitzvah programs, Mitzvah Clowning, National Mitzvah Day and Teen Philanthropy.
This list includes day schools, synagogues, Hebrew schools, central agencies, Jewish and nonsectarian agencies, every denomination and covers every age group from early childhood through senior citizens. The programs included in this list address many areas including the arts, healthcare, hunger, literacy, poverty and special needs. I think we have a lot to celebrate but with your help, partnership and involvement we can do even more.
