Honoring Julie Morris on Her Birthday

Today our beloved past chair Julie Morris would have turned 81. Last year we raised over $265,000 in Julie’s memory, establishing the Julie Morris Ner Tamid Fund which spreads the light that Julie shared with so many people during her remarkable life. (Learn more about the Fund here.)

The Fund underwrites one Spark grant each year. This year, it also contributed $30,000 towards a Core grant to the Association of Rape Crisis Centers in Israel, which is coordinating and ensuring the ongoing treatment and services of those who experienced sexual violence and trauma on October 7 and in its aftermath.

The Morris family not only approved this emergency grant, but it also made another substantial donation to replenish the Julie Morris Ner Tamid Fund. If you would like to join the Morris family, donations are always welcome at

May Julie’s memory always be a blessing.
