YEARS OF FEDERATION
LEADERSHIP
The Federation, founded in 1926, has as its
cornerstone the centuries old belief that social
justice (Tzedakah) is a community responsibility.
In practice, this means that each Jewish person has
the duty to help other Jews - one responsible for the
other - one family, one community, one people.

Today there are more than 300 volunteers and 1,600


contributors involved with the Federation, dedicated
to strengthening our community and establishing
a secure and vital future for Jewish life worldwide.

OVERNIGHT CAMP
The beauty of Jewish summer camps is that they make Jewish life entertaining.
For many children, Jewish summer camp is a focused time when being Jewish
brings them a sense of purpose and joy.

When groups of kids and counselors harmonize to Jewish songs, it creates a magical
experience that has nothing to do with studying in Hebrew school or attending
High Holiday services. The activities, crafts and even the course of the day have
Jewish themes -- bringing their heritage to them in a fresh, non-threatening way
so they learn about Judaism while fostering life-long friendships.

Jewish camp is magical and fun and so much more. Jewish overnight camp provides
a summer with a soul. That is why Federation provided $60,000 in financial support
for 80 local children this past summer.

PJ LIBRARY & PJ OUR WAY


Reading stories and listening to music with your child are among the most powerful and nurturing
early childhood learning experiences. The Federation engages families with young children through
our PJ Library and PJ Our Way programs. PJ Library sends a new, free book or CD to more than
1,000 children, 6 months to 8 years old, in our community every month. PJ Our Way serves 200 kids
ages 9-11 who choose their own books through a tailored online experience based on their
own interests and reading level.

The books and music transform intimate moments of parents reading to a child, into Jewish
moments. When the child is independent enough to choose and read their own books, PJ Our Way
takes kids on a Jewish journey through the joy of reading.

Funded by the Harold Grinspoon Foundation, Abigail & Leslie Wexner, and the Jewish Federation
of Columbus, PJ library is a gift that will nourish a Jewish life and grow with the child.

PJ Library Community
Connectors
PJ Library Community Connectors build authentic relationships,
create new, barrier-free Jewish experiences, expand communities,
and impart relevant Jewish content to families with Jewish
children ages newborn to 5 years-old through intimate outreach
and engagement programs. PJ Library Community Connectors
nurture relationships through phone conversations, social media,
face-to-face coffee dates and neighborhood-based programming.
Jewish Federation of Columbus ANNUAL REPORT 2017 OUR IMPACT 13

Russian PJ
Russian PJ Library serves Jewish children ages 6 months
through 11 and their families. Columbus is one of a handful
of cities, nationwide, to be piloting this initiative. The Federation
program comes to Columbus through a grant from the Genesis
Philanthropy Group and the Harold Grinspoon Foundation.

The program provides targeted outreach to Russian PJ families


to engage them through local programming including holiday
celebrations and gatherings.
14 OUR IMPACT Jewish Federation of Columbus ANNUAL REPORT 2017

ISRAEL ENGAGEMENT
There is no place in the world more meaningful for the Jewish people than Israel. While this
ancient land has always been home to Jews, since 1948 the modern State of Israel has completely
transformed what it means to be a Jew. Because of the State of Israel, Jews have a national
identity, wherever they live.

Travel to Israel is one of the most effective ways to connect us to our heritage and strengthen
our connections to Jewish community. Through Federations investments in the Jewish Agency
for Israel and the Joint Distribution Committee, we answer social, cultural, economic, welfare and
educational needs all over Israel.

The Diamond Family Spotlight Lecture Series, young adult Israel advocacy programs
and annual Yom Haatzmaut Israel Fest celebration bring the pride of Israel Engagement
to the Columbus Jewish community. Moreover, with our Shlichim, travel grants and
Partnership2Gether initiatives, we build living bridges with our fellow Jews in Israel.
Jewish Federation of Columbus ANNUAL REPORT 2017 OUR IMPACT 15

Onward Israel
Twenty-two young professionals and college students from Columbus
participated in the Onward Israel internship program this summer.
This specially designed program allowed each of the participants
to live in Tel Aviv, with room & board fully covered and gain relevant
experience through an internship in their field of interest.

This amazing opportunity allowed each person to gain valuable


professional experience and training while exploring a new country
and culture. This program is a collaboration between the Jewish
Federation of Columbus and Onward Israel and was made possible
by the generous support of the Diamond Family Endowment.
16 OUR IMPACT Jewish Federation of Columbus ANNUAL REPORT 2017

Shlichim: Israeli Emissaries


The Shlichim educate people of all ages in the community about Israel, and serve as advocates, role models, and as staff members for Israel
programming. Shlichim work in the community for up to three years. Among the many services that the Shlichim provided this year to our
community was the introduction of a new Israeli-inspired sports engagement for mothers, unique partnership activities with Columbuss
sister-city in Kfar Saba and the planning and execution of the annual Yom Haatzmaut celebration.
Jewish Federation of Columbus ANNUAL REPORT 2017 OUR IMPACT 17

Partnership2Gether
Partnership2Gether creates long-term partnerships and builds a living
bridge between Columbus and Israel. The goal is to develop and
strengthen unity between our Israeli partnership city, Kfar Saba
and Columbus.

We accomplish this by fostering meaningful ongoing ties between the


members of each community, based on shared endeavors. This 14-year
partnership has been incredibly successful at building relationships.

EDUCATIONAL BRIDGE
The Educational Bridge program connects students at the Brenner
and Shilo elementary schools and Rakefet kindergarten in Kfar Saba
with students at Columbus Jewish Day School and Columbus Torah
Academy. The program is expanding to include more schools in Kfar
Saba that will interact with the extensive Columbus Hebrew school
classes in the area synagogues.

Educational Bridge creates shared projects between the schools,


connected classroom experiences through the Internet as well
as the exchange and sharing of knowledge between teachers.
Last year, the Federation sent a delegation of 8 Columbus educators
for 10 days to Kfar Saba to learn more about Israeli schools and the
education they provide.
18 OUR IMPACT Jewish Federation of Columbus ANNUAL REPORT 2017

MEDICAL RESPONSE
The Medical Response Group was created to provide the Meir Hospital
in Kfar Saba with volunteer U.S. physicians in the event of a national emergency
in Israel. If Israeli physicians are called to serve with the reserves, the American
volunteers could be asked to arrive in Israel within 72 hours for a two-week stay
to provide support to the hospital.

Last year, instead of a delegation from Columbus traveling to Israel, a mission


of Israeli nurses visited Columbus to learn about award-winning techniques
administered at Nationwide Childrens Hospital.
Jewish Federation of Columbus ANNUAL REPORT 2017 OUR IMPACT 19

MAMANET
Mamanet completed its first year with more than 51 women participating
on 10 teams introducing a new sport to Columbus and building a new league
from scratch. The Israeli inspired Mamanet volleyball-like league was first
established in Kfar Saba, Columbuss partner city and has become one of the
largest social organizations specifically for mothers in Israel and Europe.

In partnership with the JCC, the Federation established this fun


and recreational league for women of all ages and skill levels that combines
sport, community service and a connection with Israel. The league also
provides a community service project, which benefited the YWCA
family shelter.
20 OUR IMPACT Jewish Federation of Columbus ANNUAL REPORT 2017

Israel Talks
In the past when organizations, companies and schools needed to book
a speaker to talk about Israel they turned to a web of acquaintances
or they would cold call the university. Even then, the speaker was
possibly not well versed in the specific subject of interest. That is why
the Federation created Israel Talks last year.

This speakers bureau was created to help provide speakers on a variety


of subjects, such as: the LGBT Community in Israel, the Israeli tech scene,
the Israeli legal system and Israeli fashion, to name a few. Since most
people are familiar with Israel only from the media, Israel Talks gives
audiences the opportunity to hear about Israel first-hand from Israelis,
and experts in their fields.

Spotlight
The Spotlight Lecture Series highlights Israel as a global creative
innovator. The ongoing series examines Israels contributions to an
ever-changing world. Topics include business, philanthropic, medical,
social, artistic and culinary innovations. Last year, the program brought
in renowned Israeli mixed media artist, Hanoch Pivin, Israeli inspired
restaurateur, Michael Solomonov, known for his landmark Philadelphia
restaurant, Zahav, and staged a Chopped style competition between
Columbus and Kfar Saba teams of cooks. Spotlight is one of many
Israel-related programs that are made possible by the generous support
of the Diamond Family Endowment.
Jewish Federation of Columbus ANNUAL REPORT 2017 OUR IMPACT 21

Zikaron BaSalon
New this year was Zikaron BaSalon, an intimate commemoration of Yom HaShoah,
Holocaust Remembrance day. Zikaron BaSalon, which literally means memories
in the living room, permits participants to listen to Holocaust Survivors and their
children in the intimate setting of a living room living room with fewer than 25 other
people. The idea was born in Israel from the belief that the connection between
todays society and the memories of the Holocaust, has significantly deteriorated
due to change of culture, the passage of time and the dwindling number of the
Holocaust Survivors. Zikaron BaSalon events were a phenomenal success with
150 participants in seven homes around the Columbus area.
22 OUR IMPACT Jewish Federation of Columbus ANNUAL REPORT 2017

JCRC: JEWISH COMMUNITY


RELATIONS COMMITTEE
The JCRC is the public affairs organization for the Jewish community and a trusted liaison with political and civic leaders. As a convener and advocate,
the JCRC cultivates the Jewish communitys commitment to Tikkun Olam (repairing the world), providing opportunities for activism and advocacy for the
causes in which we believe. The JCRC advocates for Israel, promotes communal security and combats anti-Semitism, intolerance and Holocaust denial.
Jewish Federation of Columbus ANNUAL REPORT 2017 OUR IMPACT 23

Civil Discourse Project


The Civil Discourse Project provides opportunities for people on all sides of a heated
issue to learn from each other, accept diverse opinions and maintain meaningful
relationships. The program offers an antidote to the dysfunction found today in
many political and policy discussions. With an emphasis on productive conversation
not debate this forum offers the chance for participants to learn and grow through
active listening.

JCRC brings people of diverse opinions together to explore the critical issues of our
time. Ohio State University professor Don Sylvan moderates with tools for opposing
sides to use to advance the value of civil disagreement.

Holocaust Education
Last year, the JCRCs Holocaust Education Committee (HEC) engaged more than
4,600 people in central Ohio. Through the Federations office, HEC provides lesson
plans, teaching resources and a speakers bureau to engage middle and high school
students, military personnel and civic associations.
24 OUR IMPACT Jewish Federation of Columbus ANNUAL REPORT 2017

Security Coordination
The JCRC is the central coordinating and resource organization for the security of the Jewish community in the Columbus area.
The Security and Emergency Preparedness function of the JCRC works closely with Homeland Security, law enforcement and emergency
preparedness agencies at the federal, state and local levels. We collaborate with a wide range of experts to alert Jewish institutions to threats.
We identify and disseminate best practices for Jewish institutions in central Ohio.

STATE OF OHIO
SECURITY GRANTS
The Federation, thanks in large part to its partnership
with Ohio Jewish Communities, helped secure the passage
of House Bill 384 of the 131st General Assembly,
which authorized the Ohio Emergency Management
Agency to provide grant funding to nonprofit organizations
for security improvements to fight against terrorism.

Fourteen Columbus-area Jewish organizations received


a total of $1.3 million in State Security funding thanks
to the Federations assistance and guidance.
Jewish Federation of Columbus ANNUAL REPORT 2017 OUR IMPACT 25

Interfaith
Working with leaders and members of diverse faiths,
the JCRC works to promote greater understanding and
respect among them, and to reduce prejudice among faith
groups in the Columbus area. One highlight this year was
the Habitat for Humanity project where Jews and Muslims
came together to build a home.

Advocacy
Israel continues to be challenged on a regular basis
by terrorism and non-conventional threats to its security.
At the same time, Israel is taking courageous steps
in its ongoing efforts toward peace. Explaining Israels
actions and the environment in which it operates is often
challenging in American public discourse.

That is why our JCRC partners with Hillel, Chabad, ADL,


and Ohio Jewish Communities to educate our constituents
and the public about the importance of a safe and secure
Israel to the Jewish people, to America and to the world.
26 OUR IMPACT Jewish Federation of Columbus ANNUAL REPORT 2017

HOLOCAUST SURVIVORS
INITIATIVE
The Federations Holocaust Survivors Initiative ensures that Columbus Holocaust Survivors and victims of Nazi persecution live their remaining years in dignity.
There are more than 240 survivors living here, in the Columbus area. Their average age is 87. Judaism teaches us to care for one another during times of need.

Our 3 million dollar goal to provide for them has become even more obtainable with the generosity of a challenge grant from the Wexner family. The grant will
match dollar for dollar up to $1.5 million dollars. To date we have raised almost $900,000 which has been matched. These funds allow our partner, Jewish Family
Services (JFS) to provide the assistance needed to this vulnerable population.

This year we were thrilled to help Jewish Family Services receive an additional $1.25 million from the German Claims Conference to assist our survivors.
This is an enormous increase from the mere $30,000 our survivors were getting from the Claims Conference before we began our campaign and JFS
was able to prove the magnitude of our local needs.

PROFESSIONALS
The Federations Young Professional engagement provides opportunities
for people in their 20s & 30s to create vibrant peer connections, take part
in the larger Jewish community, and explore Judaism on their own terms.
The Federation engaged hundreds of young professionals with weekly unique
programs and annual events, deepening their connections with the community.
To create a vibrant Jewish future, the Federation provides opportunities
to celebrate Jewish traditions, explore Israel and foster community.
Jewish Federation of Columbus ANNUAL REPORT 2017 OUR IMPACT 29

RUJEW
For young Jews in Columbus who grew up in the Former Soviet
Union (FSU) and whose parents grew up in the FSU, being Jewish
has long meant separation. There was separation from Jewish
history, Jewish culture, Jewish family, and their Jewish selves.
Any expression of their Jewish identity in the FSU could only
be made in hushed tones.

Though the Russian Jews no longer live secret Jewish lives,


many second generation Russian Jews feel distant from the larger
Jewish community. The Federations RuJew program brings first
and second-generation Russian-speaking Jews together through
community engagement opportunities, philanthropic ventures,
and social networking.

Federation offers a variety of programs from monthly happy


hours and inclusive Russian Shabbat events to Russian-speaking
service opportunities and networking.

commitment to support day school education at Columbus Jewish Day School
and Columbus Torah Academy. The Federation sees day school education as a
fundamental part of our annual community investments. Your donation to Federation
ensures our children can get an immersive Jewish day school experience.

EARLY CHILDHOOD
A strong Jewish community is rooted in its youth, our future. It is essential that the
Columbus Jewish community provide our children with Jewish learning experiences
that are powerful, influential and lasting. That is why the Federation provides funding
for the JCC Early Childhood program. This important program ensures that our
children can grow and flourish while developing strong Jewish identities.

The JCC Early Childhood program provides a comprehensive education for young
children in a warm Jewish setting where they learn about Jewish holidays,
customs and traditions.

UNIVERSITY STUDENTS
For the third time in two years, students at The Ohio State University rejected
a motion calling for divestment from companies that engage in business with Israel.
Anti-Israel movements on college campuses have increased by 31 percent since the
2015 academic year. A new study shows that anti-Israel activism on U.S. college
campuses has undergone a regional shift, with the Midwest experiencing a sharp
increase in anti-Israel boycott activities.

The Federation invests in pro-Israel programming and supports student leadership


orientation at the Hillel at the Ohio State University. Federation also provides funding
to smaller Ohio campus Hillels with fledgling Jewish student groups who also have
to combat BDS.

Last year, more than 800 OSU students enjoyed connecting with their Judaism
and eating a homemade Shabbat meal at the OSU Hillel thanks to your donation
to the Federation annual campaign. Every week, Reform, Conservative, Orthodox
and unaffiliated students come together to enjoy each others company over matzo
ball soup, chicken and challah.

ISRAEL & OVERSEAS


INVESTMENTS
We take our responsibility to help world Jewry very seriously. That is why Federations
reach extends beyond our local community.

Our Israel & Overseas Department is dedicated to improving the lives of Jews in Israel
and around the world and building bridges with Israel and the Columbus Jewish community.
We work with our partner agencies to support struggling regions, facilitate volunteer
opportunities and give individuals in Columbus the opportunity to build one-to-one
relationships with people in our partner city, Kfar Saba.

A gift to the Federation circles the globe, providing rescue, relief, resettlement and
engagement to Jews in every corner of the world. Most of our work is accomplished
through our partners on the ground: the Jewish Agency for Israel (JAFI) and the
American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee (JDC).
Jewish Federation of Columbus ANNUAL REPORT 2017 OUR IMPACT 39

JAFI: Jewish Agency for Israel


The Jewish Agency for Israel was instrumental in founding and building the State of Israel.
Today, JAFI helps settle Jews into Israel from France, South America, the former Soviet Union, India,
Ethiopia and the U.S. Through our relationship with the Jewish Agency, Columbus dollars help drive
issues of pluralism in Israel and help the neediest in Israel to ensure they do not slip through the cracks.

JDC: American Jewish Joint


Distribution Committee
JDC is the worlds leading Jewish humanitarian assistance organization. It works in more than

PACE
The Jewish Federation of Columbus is a touchstone of Jewish life in Columbus: for thousands of Columbus Jews, giving to the Federations annual campaign is a tradition critical
to maintaining Jewish continuity. Many have ensured that their tradition of Federation giving extends from generation to generation by establishing a Perpetual Annual Campaign Endowment.
When a PACE Fund is established, the Columbus Jewish Foundation or other community foundations invest the gift to maximize its value. The annual income from these funds generates
an annual gift to the Federation; the principal remains intact in perpetuity.
