The Bulletin - A Community Update for January 9, 2014

Finding Caleb Jacoby

A couple of years ago, journalist Jeff Jacoby was a guest speaker in our community.  As the search for his son, Caleb Jacoby, missing since midday Monday, continues, we wish him and his family the best.  This week’s Bulletin is sent a day early, in part, to have this information reach our readers sooner.

Volunteers are searching and updates like this one are available simply by searching the topic online.

The Standard-Times Profile

I want to thank the The Standard-Times for its support of our community’s message in spending time with me last week and for this feature (see PDF below) that appeared in Saturday’s paper.  Our work is indeed about points of engagement, as noted in the article.  Spreading the word, as they help us do through this feature, is important to the success of the Federation’s mission.

2013-14 Annual Campaign – More Thanks

Pledges and gifts to the 2014 annual campaign continue to come in.  Thank you for your generous support.

If you have not yet pledged or made your contribution, please consider making your contribution today. Thank You.

Shabbat Shalom.
