MAZON Advocacy Projects

Our MAZON Advocacy Projects (MAP) extend the importance of advocacy to our partner synagogues and their communities. MAP unites synagogues, grantees and like-minded advocates into a powerful constituency. We help each one grow so they can effectively advance the interests and dignity of those who struggle to put food on the table.
