While some knew him as Jonah and others as Mac, we all loved and respected him. And we miss him dearly.

Not An Ask … Just A Thank You

You really came through for us. Well, not just for us. You came through for all of the organizations to which we will forward grants in the coming months. Because of you, and WITH you, we will bring help to hundreds, perhaps thousands, as America emerges from the pandemic year.

Thank you. Our “Silver Linings” campaign has been a great success. What a privilege to join with you in bringing a little more goodness into the world. What a humbling honor to have you help us remember our Jonah, and to transform our loss into blessing.

We hope you found our “Silver Learnings” readings worthwhile. Here are links to all of our guest writers: Molly RodriguezJoe Casario, Evangelo ManiotisMarta Kauffman, Keron SiririJill Abusch, The Levins, Drs. Chuck and Nancy Fishman, Paul FeinerJuliet Wishner and Laurel Dreskin. We’re so thankful for their contributions.

As we write each time, we will always miss Jonah. But we’re grateful to have had him in our lives and, to this day, he inspires us to do good in his name. The Jonah Maccabee Foundation is privileged to honor his life by “turning love into action.”

Thank you for supporting our work.

Very sincerely,
Ellen, Billy, Aiden, Katie and Mark
The Jonah Maccabee Foundation

Not An Ask … Just A Thank You

These past five months have been hard on everyone. With so many out of work, or worried about being out of work, or just worried, we weren’t sure we should ask for donations.

In March, April and May, as the coronavirus began its march across our country and the world, we thought we’d bring you some needed love and distraction through an Online Concert Series that featured performances by Dan NicholsChava MirelThe LevinsElana ArianKenny GreenDaniel CainerEllen AllardNoah AronsonEliana Light, and Nefesh Mountain.

While enjoying the music, you still managed to give and give and give and, together, you and we provided support to health clinics across the country that were taking care of the underserved in our communities: folks who can’t afford health insurance, and undocumented immigrants whose fear of arrest keeps them away from hospitals. Because of your generosity, we were able to award grants to Centro SOL community health clinic (in Baltimore, MD), La Clínica (in San Francisco, CA), People’s Community Clinic (in Austin, TX), Phoenix Allies for Community Health (in Phoenix, AZ), and NYC Health + Hospitals (in New York, NY).
