Federations and Philanthropy News Update, June 22, 2015

Federation leaders gathered in Israel this week to hear from Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and others at the annual Assembly of The Jewish Agency. On a Federation mission to Ukraine last week participants met with members of the local Jewish community to learn firsthand about ongoing political and economic difficulties. With damage estimated in the millions, Federations allocate additional funds to assist relief efforts in Houston following last month’s historic flooding. Twenty-five years after Federations raised tens of millions of dollars to help Soviet Jews resettle in America, efforts are still being made to help them fully integrate.


Meanwhile, Federations are featured in Charleston, New York, St. Louis, Baltimore, San Diego and Dayton.
