UJA Genesis Business Network
The UJA Genesis Business Network is a group of professionals who wish to connect their businesses with their drive to support the community. Members can give back in a variety of ways– such as hands-on volunteering, sponsoring an initiative, donating products or services, or contributing their company’s expertise. Members also gain access to networking events and employee engagement opportunities.
ONE-ON-ONE: A MENTORSHIP INITIATIVE
This program is designed to connect industry leaders with post-graduate students or young professionals, in order to provide insights and clarity from those more experienced to those in the early stages of their careers.
52 WEEKS OF FOOD
With the current food insecurity crisis, our newest initiative is to keep kosher food banks stocked for the whole year. Community members can get involved by running a food drive at their home, collecting grocery gift cards, or sponsoring a week financially.
THE LITTLEST VOLUNTEER
This annual program has been running for several years now and is always a huge success. Generations of families come together to help the community in many different ways—through at-home activities and then together at our big community celebration.
LIVING ROOM LEGACIES
This is an innovative and profound way to experience the legacies of Holocaust survivors through recorded testimony. Hosted in people’s homes, Living Room Legacies is a meaningful opportunity to learn our history and partake in dialogue about contemporary manifestations of antisemitism.
WALK WITH ISRAEL
Since 1970, UJA has been running the Walk with Israel to raise funds for our partner cities in Israel and help Israelis experiencing vulnerability. Volunteering for the Walk has always been a vital piece of the event—it’s a great way to support our community and is the perfect opportunity for high school students to obtain community service hours.
