Providing financial assistance, emotional support & educational programming
to Jewish people with medical infertility.
"Sarah and I learned about JFF in the middle of our fertility challenges. Having kids was something we both wanted, but neither of us ever dreamed it could or would be so difficult... The JFF buddy program provided a perspective from people just like us who had been through the same emotional rollercoasters and come out the other side. Looking back, the buddy program was an amazing resource that came to us at a time in our lives where honestly we had begun to lose hope. ...Since being together, we have often discussed the type of community in which we wish our children to be raised. JFF is a wonderful example of that type of community. It’s not only provided us with emotional and educational fertility support, but it’s provided us a positive experience within the Jewish community, a community I’ve felt disconnected from for many years.... I simply can’t imagine being here today without the support and community JFF has provided us."

"When we were having trouble conceiving, we were amazed to learn that an organization like JFF even exists. That our community wants to help fellow Jews build a family attests to not just our people’s focus on the next generation, but to the communal spirit and generosity of the Atlanta Jewish community in particular. We are so thankful to live in this community. Elana and JFF, moreover, conceive (pun intended) of their mission in the broadest sense, recognizing that when a couple struggles to have a child, the challenge is on so many fronts—physical, material, emotional, and spiritual. We have been blessed with not just financial but moral support through JFF and the greater Atlanta Jewish community, who have helped bring us, B”H, to the happy day of welcoming baby Shmuel into the world late this spring."

"I am so thankful to the Jewish Fertility Foundation for being a part of my journey to becoming a mother. Elana has been an open heart since the beginning. She set me up with my Fertility Buddy who is seriously the most incredible and amazing woman I have ever encountered. I was hesitant about the single mom experience, but my Fertility Buddy knew what to say, how to hold my hand and support me wonderfully. Now, she has become one of my closest and dearest friends. I’m so grateful to have had JFF to link me to another Jewish, single mom by choice to share all of my trials and tribulations. Truly having a village is what it’s all about. Now I get to watch life through the eyes of this loving, giggly, smiley little one."
