The Federation Is Having A Moving Experience!

Spring_ SGPV_Logo_

Hello again and welcome to the first few breaths of another Spring! 
 
Our hugely popular Shabbaton is just about head for the mountains where I suspect we’ll find snow after the recent big rains. Everybody has a great time on the Shabbaton! 
 
Purim is just around the corner, and all the synagogues of the San Gabriel and Pomona Valleys are gearing up to celebrate the Jewish people’s triumph over the hateful Haman.  
 
Then, a few weeks later, we have Passover and celebrate another great triumph – escape from slavery!
Here at the Federation we’re hoping to make a big migration soon too – to new offices.  Please check out the video at the bottom of the page to learn about it from the cast of Jewvangilst.  And if you can help us make the move, please do!
 
Meanwhile,  as always, if YOU have a Jewish event coming up, let us know and we’ll include it in our calendar here at the Jewish Federation SGPV website. We’re the hub of all things Jewish east of the 5 freeway. You can stay informed about all of the wonderful things taking place in our community by visiting the Events and Calendar page.If you’re in need of help, be it medical, financial, legal or something else, explore our Community Directory and you’re likely to find the organization and assistance you are looking for.

Also, please fill in your email address above so we can keep you informed about things the Jewish Federation and the Jewish Community are doing in the future.

Sincerely,
Jason Moss, MSW, MAJCS
Executive Director

During this past October and November, the Jewish Federation opened its doors for a new webseries, called Jewvangelist, to be filmed on location here at our offices. Jewvangelist follows the story of a struggling rabbi who, in order to save her family synagogue, goes where no Jew has gone before – she attempts to convert people to Judaism. With her wannabe pop star cantor by her side, Rabbi Leah Levy embarks on a quest of conversion, attempting to learn the tricks of the trade from other religions. However, when her rival rabbi – and twin brother – finds out what she’s doing, he deviously schemes to ruin all of her clever (but often failed) tactics.

As a special thank you, the Jewvangelist’s cast and crew made this special video to show its support for the work the Jewish Federation of the Greater San Gabriel and Pomona Valleys does for our community. Hope you enjoy it and please, help us spread the word by sharing this video and Jewvangelist with everyone you know. www.jewvangelist.com
