Wishing You a Happy New Year

Wishing You a Happy New Year

When I look back on 2022 — and ahead to 2023 — it is with deep pride in the community we’re building together. Despite the significant volatility and challenges, we’ve come together as a Jewish community to meet local, national, and global needs while deepening our connections with one another.

I want to thank each of you — our community’s leaders, supporters, and champions — for your commitment, generosity, passion, and energy.

You are keeping Jewish Greater Washington vibrant and strong.

I hope you are as inspired as I am by the breadth and depth of our shared accomplishments, and just as encouraged by the opportunities ahead. As always, I welcome your feedback and ideas on how Federation and our community can continue to pursue our vision, and invite you to share them with me here.

On behalf of a grateful Jewish community, thank you to all those who have already made your gift to Federation’s Annual Campaign. For those still finalizing your end-of-year giving, please consider donating what you can before midnight on December 31st at shalomdc.org/donate, or by calling 301-230-7239 before 3:00 PM on December 30th.

Thank you for strengthening and brightening our community, today and for the future.

Shabbat Shalom and Happy New Year,
