Add your email & join Nothing But Nets in the fight against malaria.
Union for Reform Judaism
The Union for Reform Judaism has partnered with the Nothing But Nets™ campaign to combat the spread of malaria. Together, we hope to supply 50,000 insecticide-treated bed nets to families in sub-Saharan Africa, saving one family at a time, one net at a time. Visit www.urj.org/nets to find out how to get your community involved.
Why get involved?
The pillars of Judaism are three-fold: commitment to Torah (lifelong Jewish learning), Avodah (worship of God through prayer and observance) and G’milut Hasadim (the pursuit of justice, peace and deeds of loving kindness). This third pillar is expressed by participating in social action efforts. The Reform Movement has made a commitment to working toward the United Nation’s Millennium Development Goals to end global poverty and is acting on this commitment by partnering with Nothing But Nets™ to combat the spread of malaria.
Union for Reform Judaism contributions are being used to assist refugees who have fled Sudan and have relocated to refugee camps across the border in the Central African Republic (CAR) and Chad. The Union for Reform Judaism initiated the campaign with a contribution of the first $25,000 towards our goal.
Together we can make a difference. All it takes is $10 to buy a bed net and save lives.
