Addressing University Anti-Semitism Through Intergenerational Education
GIFT fosters meaningful connections with non-Jewish students and Jewish seniors who are unmatched elsewhere.
Why Is This Important?
According to the Anti-Defamation League, the United States has witnessed an alarming increase in antisemitic acts. Nearly 2,000
incidents were reported, and a notable increase has been observed post-Israel’s October 7th atrocities. Recognizing the urgency to address this issue, GIFT aims to educate our non-Jewish and Jewish college student volunteers about anti-Semitism during various activities emphasizing preparation for our upcoming Passover to GO-kit events and programs starting March- April.
How Will This Help?
GIFT involves 20 college students weekly, but our holiday kit programs involve 50-100 students. Our holiday kits allow students to curate, assemble, and deliver around 800 holiday kits yearly to Pittsburgh seniors. Become One of our sponsors and make a massive impact!
