For young adults to feel fulfilled and supported as they navigate life here, they need a place where they feel a sense of belonging. Helping young adults find that space within the Jewish community is so important and sets them up to achieve incredible things.

I believe in the phrase ’from strength to strength [from the Hebrew phrase, Chazak, Chazak, V’nitchazek]. That is what I wish for our Jewish community. That it takes what it has learned and developed and continues to grow becoming stronger and more vibrant.

Since my Jewish faith is a foundation for why I give and the Jewish community is so important to me, I look to The Jewish Federation to guide me to where the need is greatest and how I can make the biggest impact locally, nationally, and globally with each donation.
