Help us provide much-needed warmth, support, and comfort for 168 Ethiopian-Israeli soldiers from Boston’s sister city of Haifa.

Together with your Women’s Philanthropy friends, we’ll assemble essential care packages for these IDF soldiers, who are part of CJP's Boston-Haifa Connection Netivim program.

Now in its third year, CJP’s Netivim (Hebrew for “pathways”) works to ensure comprehensive support for young Ethiopian Israelis in all areas surrounding their IDF experiences.

We’ll also hear from Aklile Kebede, an Ethiopian Israeli from Haifa, who will share her perspective on the impact of CJP’s work.

This event is open to all women, so please bring your friends!

Women who are new to Women’s Philanthropy are invited to join us for a special reception beginning at 7:00 p.m.
