Contribution in Honor of Judy: 

(Tributes received by December 13th will be included to the extent possible in the December 20th virtual event.)

If you know Judy, you will know the most meaningful way to honor and delight this indomitable woman who has been Action’s heart, soul, and driving force for 45 years—and who will celebrate her 85th birthday the week before this tribute—is to ensure that her life’s work continues.

Your contribution to Action for Post-Soviet Jewry in Judy's honor will support the organization Judy helped build  for over three decades to care for elderly and isolated Jews in the former Soviet Union and to provide financial support to two key programs:

  • Adopt-a-Bubbe & Zayde (providing personalized humanitarian aid to thousands in 20+ cities)
  • Warm Houses (organizing in-home gatherings for warm meals and Jewish connection, bringing together thousands of elderly and isolated Jews across Ukraine)

With pogroms, purges, and centuries of government-sanctioned anti-Semitism, life for Jews in the former Soviet Union has never been easy. APSJ’s work is ongoing, and your contribution will ensure that the people who Judy is most concerned about, the elderly and isolated, will continue to be provided with life-saving support.

Please give as generously as you can. Thank you!
