L’ shanah tovah u metukah - Wishing You a Good & Sweet New Year!

L’ shanah tovah u metukah - Wishing You a Good & Sweet New Year!

We would like to extend our best wishes to you and your family for a joyful, meaningful, healthy and reflective year of growth and the sweetest things in life. The arrival of the New Year is a time for families to be together, reminding us that our community is really an extension of our families. As in all families, the ties that bind us are much more significant than any of the issues that divide or challenge us. The central focus of our work at Federation is to bring us together as a community, as a people, for the mutual benefit of all.

In the year that has passed, we have indeed found strength as a community, pulling together to serve, to help, to heal and to take care of one another, honoring the traditional Jewish values of tzedakah and tikkun olam. Together, we have built a school in the Gaza region of the Negev, expanded unique, impactful services, enhanced our vibrant community, and addressed the needs of our people here at home, in Israel and around the world. And at this special time of year, we wish the world a happy birthday!

We are filled with gratitude for all we have achieved. You have made all this possible through your generosity and your committed support for the things we all care about. In this time of reflection, we are particularly thankful for everything our donors, volunteers and community members do to make our Jewish community thrive. We hope the coming year of 5773 will be filled with the desire to fulfill our share of responsibilities to tikkun olam, to one another and to all of Israel.

L’ shanah tovah u metukah

May you, and those you love, be written in the book of life for a sweet New Year.

May you know the blessings of health, happiness and prosperity.
