2019 Tzedakah Collective

Final Meeting

December 15 - 3:00 to 5:00 PM

at the home of Pamela & Greg Feldman-Hill

Our members will vote on how we will disburse our grants. This year’s potential grant recipients include Joseph’s Coat (addressing clothing and household needs in Central Ohio), Growlers Dog Bones (vocational training and employment for young adults with disabilities), ACTION Ohio (assisting foster children as they age out of the foster care system), and the Harmony Project (connecting Central Ohioans through arts, education and volunteer community service.)

The Tzedakah Collective is a women’s philanthropy group, open to all Reform women in Central Ohio, that studies the missions and needs of non-profits whose work is consistent with our Reform Jewish values. In 2019 we have focused on organizations whose mission restores human dignity in Central Ohio. Each member donates a minimum of $60 towards our annual grants.

For additional information or to join, contact Marsha Pond at, or call 614--468 -1728 (home), 607- 592 -1567 (cell).
