Sabbatical Year - How Jewish Values Lead to Social Impact

Tuesday, February 24, 2015, 12:00pm – 1:00pm EST

Join MK Ruth Calderon for a discussion introducing the concept of Shmita during the biblical era and learn how the custom has evolved in this day and age, to have social credibility for families whose debt endangers their future. Ahuva Yanai, CEO of Matan – Investing in the Community, will explain how this concept was turned into an active project with contributions from all three sectors. Join us for this interactive webinar to learn the special role the philanthropic community can have in this tradition, as well as the challenges faced by the business sector in its efforts to reduce debts during the year of Shmita.
