Supporting our community at home and abroad, we find strength in the bond that keeps us together. We believe in impact through connection and strive to be a beacon of hope and light through cultural get-togethers and hands-on initiatives for our community at large.
Founded in 2017, Bridge of Love is a non-profit organization established by philanthropist Tzippy Holand with a vision to empower our community through cultural connectedness, educational lectures, and support for our Jewish community in Miami and Israel.
Our commitment to community is derived from a strong dedication to our faith and identity. As a nation sharing a longstanding history of persecution, we have a deeply rooted obligation towards each other to count on one another. From celebrating moments of joy, to showing support during times of crisis–we are stronger together and responsible for one another.
Since the Holocaust, our nation has continued to face persecution in many parts of the world. In Europe, our community has been subjected to hate speech and acts of violence–and in the United States, we have endured the impacts of being the targets of harassment and discrimination. Despite these challenges, we have remained resilient and continue to thrive and help each other. It is this unity and our strength as a community that allows us to overcome obstacles in the face of adversity.
Having experienced and witnessed firsthand the impacts of hardship, our commitment to community is derived from the desire to do good and the growing demand for access to resources by Jewish families and individuals who seek a sense of belonging and are in need of a helping hand.

A wonderful serenity has taken possession of my entire soul, like these sweet mornings of spring which I enjoy with my whole heart. I am alone, and feel the charm of existence in this spot.
We partner with organizations who are at the forefront of making an impact. See the organizations who are actively working towards fulfilling our mission in supporting our community.
Born in Siberia, Tzippy’s journey to philanthropy began through surviving the hardships of the Holocaust. Her experience during the war has led to a humanitarian awakening and the need to give back amidst the current state of global fear and tension against our American and Israeli Jewish community.
Tzippy’s philanthropic efforts range from advocating for Israel and the Friends of the Israel Defense Forces (FIDF)—and sponsoring a group of lone soldiers for the duration of their academic career, among others. Through these endeavors, Bridge of Love was born as a result of this growing momentum and commitment to protect, nurture, and support the future of our identity and the lives of our children for generations to come.
