This past year, The Jewish Federation of Greater Los Angeles continued meeting the needs of those we serve – a testament
to both your generosity and the tenacious efforts of our dedicated volunteer leadership and professional staff. The purpose
of this report is to take a look back at 2009 and recognize the tremendous support of our community partners: families
and individuals, as well as communal organizations.
On your behalf, we leverage our community partnerships to ensure the continuity of the Jewish people as we bring Jewish
values to life in Los Angeles, Israel and around the world. Only Federation has the strength of community to make the
great work we do possible:
- Caring for Jews in need, wherever they live.
- Making sure everyone can engage in Jewish life.
- Serving the greater community to make life better for all of us.
This is an exciting time to be involved with the Federation. Our Federation is bringing the community together and serving
as a central resource to effectively address issues of shared concern. We are taking steps to engage a wider cross-section
of the community to help us achieve our goal of a vibrant Jewish future, as well as reaching out to other organizations
and synagogue leadership representing all streams of Jewish life to learn how we can forge stronger partnerships. Our
Federation can only truly succeed if the entire community succeeds.
We are blessed to have such a diverse, caring Jewish community and look forward to your continued partnership this year,
as we move toward our Centennial anniversary in 2011. Please join us in making our Federation even better and our future
that much brighter.
Thank you for generously supporting our Federation. Your commitment provides the strength of community.
