Art & Philanthropy Go Hand-in-Hand


Who knew that arts, crafts and philanthropy looked so good together?

On Tuesday, December 9 members of Kol Isha, Federation’s young women’s group, and Women’s Philanthropy enjoyed a night of arts and crafts, cross-generational bonding and giving back to our community. A portion of the proceeds from the event will be donated to Alpert Jewish Family and Children’s Service in the form of gift cards to assist their Kosher food pantry.

During the program the women introduced a new Federation social action initiative, Helping Hands for Hunger which supports one of Federation's key impact areas, caring for vulnerable populations, by focuses on hunger and food insecurity.


Numerous volunteer opportunities will be offered throughout the year for women to participate in and address the issue of food insecurity in Palm Beach County, in Israel and in Jewish communities around the world.

The celebration also included a pinning ceremony honoring five women who have reached the Jewish Heart and Morasha giving levels.

The fun and informative Bottles and Brushes event was complete with a hands on project led by Karen List, Women's Philanthropy Advisor to the Kol Isha group. The participants painted bowls which will not only be enjoyed but will serve as a reminder of people in need locally and globally who cannot afford to fill their bowls with food.
