SPECIAL PHILANTHROPY SUPPLEMENT GA BALTIMORE 2012Contact us
The theme of this year's General Assembly of the Jewish Federations of North America is "The 2012 GA – Where the Jewish community downloads/uploads/shares." This ultra-modern terminology not only reflects the contemporary culture in which we all live, but also embodies the reality of today's Jewish world. Technology is everywhere and it has an important role to play in the future of the global Jewish community.
Among the altruistic organizations spotlighted in this issue of "The Power of Giving," many describe their reliance on new technologies to expand and improve the scope of their work. In many cases, the tech revolution has enabled them to reach out in exciting new directions.
The focal issues of the day which will be discussed at the GA – such as strengthening Jewish identity among Diaspora and Israeli Jews, providing assistance to disadvantaged Jews in Israel and elsewhere, and building a Jewish leadership among the younger generation – are themes which reverberate repeatedly throughout this special philanthropy supplement.
