The Union for Reform Judaism provides vision and leadership to Reform Jews and congregations on spiritual, ethical, social justice and management issues. It provides programmatic support to Reform Jewish congregations and offers opportunities for individual growth and identity that few congregations could provide by themselves, such as camps and Israel programs for youth, study kallot and North American and regional biennials. The Union for Reform Judaism partners 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.
United Against Malaria is a partnership of footballers, non-governmental organizations, foundations, governments, corporations and people like you who have joined forces ahead of the 2010 World Cup in South Africa to unite in the fight against malaria. By acting now, we can achieve unprecedented increases in mosquito net coverage across Africa to save millions of lives by the next World Cup in 2014. For just $10 or €5, less than the cost of a football/soccer ball, we can protect a mother and child for five years.
