~~I have heard from several people that are not members of the Jewish Federation. At first, this makes me chuckle, but then it makes me think about the misconception of the Federation. Simply put, the Jewish Federation is comprised of the Jewish Community in Nevada. To borrow a famous line from a famous speech given at a famous battlefield, the Jewish Federation is an organization of the people, by the people, and for the people. If you are a member of the Jewish Community in Nevada, we are your Jewish Federation - regardless if you make a contribution. We provide services, through our community agencies and synagogues, regardless of financial contribution. To that end, your Jewish Federation will be holding its Annual Meeting on December 7th, 6:30pm, at Congregation Ner Tamid.
I hope that as many members of the community as possible will attend this meeting to hear about our community's accomplishments and the vision for the future. In addition to installing new officers, and our Chair of the Board-elect, Marla Letizia, we will have an opportunity to honor our outgoing Chair, David Stone, and the recipients of our annual awards (Young Leadership, Mensch Volunteer of the Year, Jewish Professional, and Jewish Educator).
I look forward to seeing you on December 7th to and talking more about YOUR Federation's plans for the future. Please RSVP to Dana@jewishlasvegas.com . Dessert and refreshments will be served at the conclusion of the meeting.
