Our Impact This Year
Because of your generosity our Federation has helped numerous members of our own community with meals, groceries, transportation, financial assistance and support and friendship. We are all blessed to be part of an incredibly loving and generous community.
The New Year comes as a gift — every new year offers an opportunity to take a deep look at all aspects of our lives, our community, the things we treasure and want to keep close, what needs improvement and polish, and what should be discarded.
We pray. We meditate–for the power of clear thought–so that our deeds and words are in accord.
In my last edition of Minute with Moshe, I spoke about the importance of the Federation being a Bayit Chazak–a strong and courageous “house” as we work towards fulfilling our 2025 Community Vision.
This vision will be my legacy project. What is a legacy project?
This year our Federation’s Community Relations Committee (CRC) is spearheading an outreach initiative to Monroe Elementary School. The school was identified as one of the South Bend public schools most in need of help. We are asking for volunteers from our community to join us in helping Monroe Elementary School as mentor/tutors.
