From the Desk of the Federation President: Fed preparing for the fall

By Suzanne Holwitt

As summer draws to a close and we prepare for the Holy Days, we want to assure you that the Federation is doing well and is busily preparing for several upcoming programs. Shelley Hubal, our executive director, is doing a wonderful job. The office continues to be in the capable hands of our office manager, Jennifer Kakusian. Rose Shea, our JFS director, is doing a fantastic job working with organizations and the members of our community who ask for assistance. Thank you to all of you who support the We Remember You campaign so that Rose can continue to support our neighbors in need and enable them to better celebrate these special days.

On September 18, we will have a Super Sunday brunch to kick off our 2023 Campaign. It will be so nice to be able to get together in person again: come socialize, make your pledge or make your pledge prior to the 18th. On October 2, the community will gather at the Temple Israel cemetery for the Holocaust memorial service. 

On behalf of the Federation board, I would like to take this opportunity to wish all a l’shanah tovah tikatevu.
