JLens 2022 Impact Report
The Talmud tells us Mishenichnas Adar Marbim B'simcha “when the month of Adar arrives, we increase in joy” (Taanit 29a). JLens’ work and values are deeply rooted in Jewish text and tradition. In this month of Adar, at JLens we are increasing in joy by celebrating our highlights of 2022 and a decade of impact. We are excited to share our most comprehensive impact report yet! We are extremely proud of our sustained Jewish communal advocacy, promotion of Jewish values in corporate behavior, and in particular the hard-earned changes we have seen as a result of this vital work.
