Sunday is the beginning of the three-day Jewish Federations of North America General Assembly. Volunteer and professional leaders from all 153 Jewish Federations and 300 Network communities from throughout North America, along with representatives of both national and international Jewish agencies, will be on site to learn, network and be inspired.
We are really proud that two Pittsburgh activities will be put on display to the Jewish world. Our 2015 Campaign plan and strategy will be highlighted during a gathering of development professionals and volunteers. It caught the eye of the National Campaign Chair when she visited Pittsburgh earlier this year so she asked that it be shared with others. In addition, the Pittsburgh Jewish Community Scorecard (something quarterbacked by the Federation but truly a collaboration with all our agencies and community synagogues) will be presented as a new model of measuring community impacts.
Of Pittsburgh’s close to 30 participants, 7 are current members of the Jewish Federations of North America National Young Leadership Cabinet. We understand that approximately 40 “Cabinet” members in total are attending the GA from throughout the continent. The disproportionate participation from Pittsburgh is a statement about the quality and commitment of the young adults engaged and involved in our Federation. We are so lucky!
Looking forward to sharing a thought or two from the GA with you next Friday…
