CEO Sam Asher's October Update

Let us work to do more this year​

The ten days starting with Rosh Hashanah and ending with Yom Kippur are called the Yamim Noraim or the Days of Awe. They are a time serious introspection. As this edition of The Reflector arrives in your homes, we will just be beginning this period.

In the days preceding the Yamim Noraim, I have been thinking a lot about our community and the directions we have taken. I seek your attention as I mention some of our accomplishments in the past year and perhaps ask your forgiveness as I consider areas where we could be doing a better job in the coming year.

Every year we begin our JCFR Annual Campaign in August/September. This year, our General Campaign Chair Seth Kaplan, along with Women’s Division Chair Barbara Kiken and Co-Chair Jill Goldfine, Men’s Division Co-Chairs Gary Goldberg and  Russ Jennings and Young Adult Division Chair Yael Fletcher, are leading a great team of volunteers in the 2017 Campaign. They are supported by Campaign Director Alissa Aronovicci, Operations Director Sara Rosenbaum and Young Adult Coordinator and Communications Specialist Jesse Feld.




Our 2017 Grand Event Sponsors:


The GA convenes thousands of volunteer and professional leaders from Federations across North America, along with those in the business of Jewish philanthropy from around the world.

This premier annual conference will take you on a journey to explore how Federations help shape purposeful Jewish communities. And how our movement has forged a course that continues to touch millions of lives on every continent. Explore your Jewish journey at the 2016 General Assembly.
