Our Grants Impact

Keren Or

Federation’s Endowment provides generous grant support to Keren Or, the premier center in Israel for care of blind & visually impaired children with multiple disabilities. Hydrotherapy students are in a special program that helps them to acquire a sense of security, increase range of motion, develop communication skills and experience a sense of joy.


Why camp? According to the Foundation for Jewish Camping, Jewish camp weaves Jewish values, culture, and traditions into the fabric of camp, helping campers to connect to their own identity and the larger Jewish community.
