During the next 100 days, we invite you to explore the Federation’s impact locally, in Israel and around the world. From September 13 -December 31, we will highlight our programs and events and individuals whose lives are changed by our work. We hope you will get involved with Federation at events and be inspired to make meaningful contributions to Federation’s 2020 Annual Campaign.

One hundred days, one community goal.

Watch for our new Senior Connections Outdoors at Noon series, featuring Tai Chi, meditation with Rabbi Ken Alter, tie-dye face masks, adult coloring, stories from children of survivors and introspective talks from Maryashi Sternberg.

Through Pledge2Protect, we’ve delivered 3,000 masks to nursing homes and assisted living facilities and we’ll be delivering more. The Community Relief & Recovery Fund enables us we to help offset rental payments and utilities bills, have given out dozens of air conditioners, and the food bank has been in overdrive–for every 12 people we were feeding last year, we are now feeding 60, and those numbers grow daily.

While our Encountering programs have gone virtual, our exhibit, Stories of Resilience: Encountering Racism, which successfully debuted at the Lyman Allyn Art Museum, is now getting ready to tour various other CT museums. We will also host an adult series of provocative webinars on race and religion in our region. 

The Israel Desk will debut during One Hundred Days of Impact. Look for new events, programs, speakers and movies that highlight our critically-needed relationship with Israel.

We are virtually working with young people, teens, Hillel, and our Israeli Emissaries. Every week we get new subscriptions to PJ Library because their events are highlighting the importance of finding and exploring Jewish identity through fun, cooking, and reading.

The Leader remains a critical outlet for news and events, and we are still publishing and delivering without the aid of our dedicated volunteers. The Community Calendar debuts in September, enabling our entire Jewish community to stay connected and active in vibrant Jewish life.

We are working harder than ever before because we must do more than ever before. So, when you get that call from a Federation volunteer to ask for your gift, please answer with your support. When that letter arrives asking for your pledge, please send it back to us with your donation. Please give more.

One hundred days, one community goal.
