May 2018 JTS America Newsletter
Semi-annual JTS street-fundraising campaigns are held in May. Many people have participated in the fundraising, and many have made donations to JTS. We would like to extend our deepest gratitude to all of those who have made donations and for supporting JTS in the effort to aid those in need around the world.
The donations you make become food for the hungry, medicine for the sick, and hope for the children with no educational opportunities.
