October 20, 2020
The Simon Wiesenthal Center's Museum of Tolerance is grateful to be a recipient of a CARES Fund grant generously donated through the Jewish Federation of Greater Los Angeles to support the Museum of Tolerance’s safe reopening.
The CARES Fund grant will be used in the Museum of Tolerance to replace existing bathroom faucets with 19 touchless faucets thereby improving conditions and safety protocols for Museum visitors and staff. The Simon Wiesenthal Center Museum of Tolerance lauds the Federation’s leadership and support in this time of crisis.
“This is a wonderful program supporting diverse Jewish organizations across Los Angeles. We are incredibly appreciative for the leadership of the Jewish Federation during this crisis,“ said Rabbi Meyer H. May, Simon Wiesenthal Center Executive Director.
As part of its COVID-19 Response Plan, the Federation provided critical support to 50+ Jewish organizations across LA through the CARES Fund: Careful Agency Reopening and Educational Safety Fund, a $1,000,000 program to help organizations serving youth manage the costs of reopening operations in compliance with COVID-19 regulatory requirements.
The Jewish Federation of Greater Los Angeles works to identify and address the greatest challenges and opportunities in Los Angeles, Israel and around the world. Since the onset of Covid-19, our Federation has been steadfast in its commitment to addressing our community’s short- and long-term challenges. From providing essential resources for those most in need to increasing cash assistance funds to keeping our community connected, The Jewish Federation, in partnership with many donors and the Jewish Community Foundation, is playing an essential role in the rebuilding of Jewish LA.
The Simon Wiesenthal Center is one of the largest international Jewish human rights organizations with over 400,000 member families in the United States. It is an NGO at international agencies including the United Nations, UNESCO, the OSCE, the OAS, the Council of Europe and the Latin American Parliament (Parlatino).
