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.

 


There is a special Atlanta discount for $100 off JScreen’s ReproGEN or CancerGEN test.
Use coupon code ScreenATL at JScreen.org | Click here for more info.

 

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.


 



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!
