Greater than the Sum of Our Parts

Dov Ben-Shimon Federation CEO

We’re trying something new this year!

In previous years, spring was the season for annual meetings here at Federation – Women’s Philanthropy, Jewish Community Foundation, Global Connections, and, of course, Federation. If you wanted to get a sense of the scope of what we’re doing at Federation, you’d have to attend multiple meetings – taking up a lot of your precious time. But this year will be different.

This year, in just one event, we’ll celebrate all the amazing work we do together.

You definitely won’t want to miss it!

We’ll pay tribute to outgoing UJA Campaign Chair Ira Steinberg and outgoing JCF President Robert Kuchner, two leaders who have made a huge impact on our organization, and all the outgoing and incoming Board members.

We’ll present this year’s President’s Bamberger Award to Rita Waldor, a tireless, gracious fundraiser who has been a role model and a mentor to so many leaders in our community.

We’ll honor Robyn Laveman and Brett Tanzman, recipients of this year’s Julius and Bessie Cohn Young Leadership Award.

We’ll hear updates from our leaders.

And when you hear about all the individual components, you’ll get a much better sense of the whole organization – of our power, our impact, and our awesomeness. We’re greater together, and greater than the sum of our parts!

I hope to see you there!
