SPACE IS STILL AVAILABLE
FOR 2021 ETGAR 36 SUMMER JOURNEY


We still have space available for our summer trip
[Etgar 36: June 27-August 2 / Etgar 36 West: June 27-July 18}

. Since we are requiring that everyone on the
trip must be vaccinated, we had ten of the participants who are under 16 years old have to roll
their registration over to next summer. Please help us spread the word to any high school
student who is 16 years or older (and we do have graduating seniors signed up) who may, or should, be interested in journeying across America learning about history, politics, and activism. 

Please send people to our website (click the graphic): www.etgar.org
or send them the flyer below.

The Atlanta Jewish Federation hosts our local Shinshinim Program. This program is, essentially, a gap-year program for Israelis who have recently graduated High School to come to the US and work in the Jewish community. Most synagogues have participated in this program in the past. If you haven't, you may want to get additional information to be paired up for the next academic year!

We are looking for families who keep kosher in their homes, are warm, loving, and welcoming to open their hearts and homes to an Israeli teen! Shinshinim Atlanta will be bringing 8 new dynamic, smart and hard working 18 year old kids to our beautiful city to share their love of Israel for a year.  During this gap year they are volunteering their time in different summer camps,  Jewish day schools, synagogues, Jewish and non-Jewish organizations throughout Atlanta while living in Jewish-American homes. They are looking for the Atlanta lifestyle and family feeling! For more information please apply to host a Shinshin and Andrea Levy will follow up!



JScreen has an incredible opportunity for your members to take advantage of affordable genetic testing for family planning. A generous grant from NextGen-Jewish Federation of Greater Atlanta gives those ages 18-45, living in the Atlanta metro area, the ability to get tested for only $74, with insurance, by using the code NextGenATL at the JScreen.org (request your kit) checkout page.

 

Testing is simple, convenient, and done at-home on a saliva sample! The test is for a panel of over 200 genetic diseases, including those most common in people with Ashkenazi, Sephardi, and Mizrahi backgrounds. Follow-up genetic counseling is provided via telehealth to discuss the test results. Anyone considering starting or expanding their family should consider genetic screening.  Together we can save lives.
