Federations and Philanthropy News Update, June 1, 2015

Federations join in mourning Rochelle Shoretz, z”l, the founder and leader of Sharsheret, a national organization that supports women with breast and ovarian cancer. A frequent guest speaker in many Federations around the country as well as at the General Assembly and TribeFest, she often reminded audiences to be “unapologetically Jewish” in our work to repair the world. May her memory be for a blessing.


Federations also mourn the loss of Beau Biden, the son of Vice President Joe Biden. As the Houston Jewish community prepares to bury an elderly couple who passed away during last week’s flooding, the local Houston Federation continues to raise emergency funds with national support. Throughout the country Federations have helped lead the way to raise national awareness of Jewish American Heritage Month. Jewish organizations throughout the country are receiving federal security grants in part due to advocacy done by Jewish Federations.


Meanwhile, Federations are featured in New York, Boston, and Cleveland.
