(Atlanta, GA) – Repair the World Atlanta, part of the national organization Repair the World that engages Jews and their communities to serve at the intersection of Jewish values and social change, has received a grant from the Community Foundation for Greater Atlanta to expand this important work locally.
“The generosity of the Community Foundation for Greater Atlanta will fuel essential efforts to further ignite and inspire young adults to serve , take action to pursue a just world, and build bridges across lines of difference,” said Samantha Berinsky, City Director, Repair the World Atlanta. “We are grateful for the Foundation’s investment in Atlanta Repair that enables us to expand our impact in our Atlanta communities as we serve to meet the needs of our local nonprofit partners.”
Emma Burns, a Fellow with Atlanta Repair from 2021-2022, said “I serve because it honors and celebrates our innate interconnectedness. I think without Repair I wouldn’t have the resources or people to really delve into the communities I’m in and learn as much as I have learned.”
“Engaged communities are thriving communities,” said Ayana Gabriel, vice president of Community Impact for the Community Foundation for Greater Atlanta. “At its core, Repair the World is committed to igniting a passion for education, service, and social change within the Jewish community, and we are pleased to be able to provide resources, through this generous gift from the Shulman family, to support their efforts.”
