MAZON collaborates with diverse stakeholders to showcase what’s possible: a country built on compassion, mutual support, and meaningful opportunity. By reflecting on the world as it is, we create a vision of what it could be — one where those in need are supported, the powerful are held to account, and hunger is a distant memory.
Jewish holidays are not only full of meaningful rituals and celebration — they also offer teachings that guide us in living out our Jewish values. These themes have endured for thousands of years because they speak to what’s good in all of us: our desire to build community, to exist in harmony with our natural environment and each other, and to create societies driven by justice and compassion. MAZON’s materials and projects below connect hunger-related education and advocacy with major Jewish holidays. For support in building your holiday programs, please contact Paul Sherman, Senior Outreach Manager.
Make a gift to MAZON’s Spotlight Fund
Your partnership allows MAZON to be the national Jewish voice dedicated to fighting hunger, particularly for those facing hunger whose struggles are too often over-looked, disregarded, or discounted. Together, we have made a commitment to shine a spotlight on those issues and populations where larger organizations and the government have yet to turn their focus.
Your support of MAZON’s Spotlight Fund furthers this work, allowing us to fight to end hunger among military families, veterans, Native Americans, single mothers, LGBTQ seniors, the people of Puerto Rico and the territories, and all who struggle. Your gift today strengthens this mission and helps to build a community dedicated to ending hunger for everyone. Join us.
