The Federation would like to extend a sincere yishar koach (way to go) to two of San Diego's outstanding young Jewish women--Chloe Dahan and Jamie Zimmerman. The two teens spent an entire summer planning a performing-arts program for Jewish girls and teens with special needs, a Friendship Circle program dubbed "Shooting Stars," which launched last year and has since gained national attention.

Due to Chloe and Jamie's leadership, dedication to Jewish community, and popularity of the program itself, Tzivos Hashem: Jewish Children’s International announced the two young women as winners of their annual "Power of Jewish Children" contest.

"The Jewish Federation of San Diego County applauds Chloe Dahan and Jamie Zimmerman for their excellent work and for receiving this esteemed award," said Michael Sonduck, President and CEO of Federation. "The leadership, innovation, and dedication to philanthropy and Jewish community demonstrated by these two young women, falls in direct alignment with  Federation's mission and its Community Teen program."
