Shabbat Shalom from CEO Nora Gorenstein

Dear Friend,

I am thankful to share with you that after an incredibly eventful year, we were able to come together this week for a very well-attended and meaningful Annual Meeting of the Jewish Federation of Western Massachusetts!

Thank you to all our partners, community members, and speakers who participated at this year’s Annual Meeting–and a special shoutout to our guest speaker Shira Hutt, Jewish Federations of North America executive vice president who also spent the day with our staff.

As the end of the secular (and fiscal) year draws closer, I hope you will take a minute to reflect on all that we have accomplished together this year, and what more we will do in the year ahead! If you have not already done so, please consider making a contribution to the Annual Campaign to meet our community’s urgent needs in 2024!

Wishing you a peaceful and restful Shabbat,

Nora Gorenstein
Chief Executive Officer
