WELCOME TO THE JEWISH FEDERATION OF EDMONTON 2021/22 UJA CAMPAIGN

 

Dear Edmonton Jewish Community:

Oh, what a test of resilience the past year has been. People, communities, and organizations the world around have re-invented the way we do things to cope and stay strong. At the Jewish Federation of Edmonton, we are very proud of our accomplishmentsーproud of how we have evolved, innovated, and invented ways to support and connect Jewish Edmonton.

To meet unprecedented needs, we cut costs and maximized allocations to beneficiaries, created a COVID Relief Fund to expand help for the vulnerable, and offered an array of great new cultural programs to touch lives in an immediate and impactful way. As the ‘new normal’ evolves, we will continue to help those in need and to actively engage our community so that good grows at home, in Israel and around the world.

We have set a community-wide goal to raise $850,000 through this year’s UJA Campaign. As UJA Co-Chairs, we passionately believe in the good we can do collectively through UJA. We are convinced that the cumulative result of the gift you make, your family and friends make, all of us make, will be a more vibrant, more connected, and more resilient Jewish community.

It has been a tough year economically, on top of all else, yet, we ask you to please give generously. If the past year has taught us anything, it is the importance of a strong Edmonton Jewish community equipped to assist those in need and advocate for our interests. Your gift is an investment in the power of community and the future of Jewish life. It is an investment in good and a good investment!

Please join us in doing good, through a gift to the 2021/22 UJA Campaign.

Thank you for your generosity,

Howie Sniderman & Darryl Antel, UJA Campaign Co-Chairs
