Jewish Federation of Columbus ANNUAL REPORT 2016

A Letter
From our
Leaders

Your Federation had another incredible year and continues to live up to its mission: to lead the community to achieve its
vision of being a thriving Jewish community at the forefront of the next renaissance in Jewish life. Federation focuses on
three areas and each had significant successes this past year:
Connecting the Jewish Community
The PJ Library program grew dramatically this year. More than 1,000 children in Columbus received these books monthly.
Atid, our Young Adult Division, continued to hold programs weekly including the Sukkah in the Columbus Commons
that generated tremendous community excitement.
Outreach to the Russian community was formally introduced and brought hundreds of Russians together in a variety
of programs.
Advocating for Jewish Causes
Holocaust Survivors and their children educated more than 4,000 people this year, up 400% from last year, ensuring
that this essential history continues to be told.
The Israel Advocacy subcommittee provided many hours of education to community volunteers about effective ways
to advocate for Israel.
Tabletop security exercises were coordinated at over a dozen local Jewish institutions to ensure we are all prepared.
Ensuring the Financing of Community Priorities
Federation raised $7.3 million dollars this year and invested almost $6.3 million in programs of importance to our
community, many of which are run by our partner agencies.
We raised $200,000 from national Foundations effectively increasing Jewish programming in Columbus without
further taxing our local donors.
In addition to the funds we raised for Federation, we helped partner agencies to raise an additional $1.1 million dollars
to assist our 240 local Holocaust Survivors.
We are truly excited to be leading your Federation at this important time as we all strive to achieve our common goals.
This years annual report is highlighting what we want and what we will do to achieve that. So in that spirit...
WE WANT to have a thriving Jewish community where we work together to develop and incubate bold new ideas.
WE WILL work with individuals and partner agencies to understand each others visions and try to help all of us realize
our collective goals.

Introduction

Jewish Federation of Columbus ANNUAL REPORT 2016

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 2,100
contributors involved with the Federation, dedicated to
strengthening our community and establishing a secure
and vital future for Jewish life worldwide.
We are mindful of our past and thank the leadership
listed on page 48, whose tireless efforts created a
strong foundation rooted in our core Jewish values.

Overnight Camp
Ask any child what the best time of year is, and they will say summertime. For many,
summer means spending time outdoors at Jewish overnight camp. For these kids,
Jewish camp is just plain fun, but its really much more than that its camp with
a soul.
While they are racing down the zipline, singing under the stars, and making lifelong
friends they also learn values like self-confidence, independence, and leadership that
stay with them long after the last campfire of the summer.
At Jewish camp, campers explore their connection to Judaism in a fun and
meaningful way while having the time of their lives. Federation provides financial
support for 150 local children so they can experience the magic of Jewish
overnight camp.

It has been an amazing experience for the

kids. I wish I could go with them. They have


really come into their own Judaically and
socially and gained their independence.

PJ Library
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 between the ages of six months and eight years old through our PJ Library program. Every month a new book or CD is sent to more than 1,000 children in our
community free for them to enjoy.
The books and music transform the intimate moment of reading to a child into Jewish moments. Research indicates that Jewish experiences in a childs earliest years establish
the basis of a strong Jewish sense of self. Funded by Abigail & Leslie Wexner, the Jewish Federation of Columbus and the Harold Grinspoon Foundation, PJ library is a gift that
will nourish a Jewish life and grow with the child.

Every month, after

Russian PJ Library
Columbus was selected this past spring to launch Russian PJ Library, serving 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 program has grown, since inception, to over 55 children. The Federation program comes to Columbus through a grant from
the Genesis Philanthropy Group and the Harold Grinspoon Foundation.
Twelve times a year, the PJ Library program delivers books and music that specifically speak to the Russian Jewish experience through Jewish books and CDs. Additionally,
Irina Katon, RSJ PJ Library Program Professional provides community outreach to the Russian PJ families to engage them through local programming including holiday
celebrations and gatherings. The programs incorporate Jewish values, as well as elements of Russian culture and literature.

Though the Russian Jews no longer
live secret Jewish lives, many second
generation Russian Jews feel distant
from the larger Jewish community.

DIMA LOVCHINKSKY

For young Jews in Columbus who


grew up in the Former Soviet Union
(FSU) and whose parents grew up
in the FSU, being Jewish 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.

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, the modern State of Israel, since
1948, 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 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.
And, with our Shlichim, travel grants and Partnership2Gether initiatives, we build living bridges with our fellow Jews in Israel.

Israeli Emmisaries

Israel is really part of who we are as a Jewish people.


RACHEL DAVIS

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 provide to our community
is the planning and execution of the annual Yom Haatzmaut
celebration. For several hours every spring, Columbus becomes a part
of Israel, alive with the music, food, and joy that accompanies Israels
Independence Day.

MICHAL ADAR

The Spotlight Lecture Series highlights Israel as a Global Innovator.


The ongoing speaker series examines Israel's contributions to an everchanging world. Topics include business, philanthropic, medical and social
innovation. Last year, the program brought in speakers from the Israel
Venture Network, an impact investment organization aimed at creating
sustainable social change for Israels most vulnerable populations and

Whether its hiking up Masada before sunrise, walking on the
cobblestones in the Old City of Jerusalem, exploring Israeli nightlife
in Tel Aviv, or wandering the desert on the back of a camel, these are
the memories that will last a lifetime. A truly transformative
experience. Every year, the Federation provides the gift of a trip
to Israel to dozens of young adults in central Ohio.

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 Israeil partnership city, Kfar Saba and Columbus. We
accomplish this by fostering meaningful ongoing ties between the members of each community, based on a
shared endeavor and Jewish identity. This is achieved through a 14-year partnership between the Federation
and the Jewish Agency for Israel.

Educational Bridge

Medical Response

TheEducationalBridgeprogram 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 creates shared projects between the schools,
connected classroom experiences through the Internet
as well as the exchange and sharing of knowledge
between teachers. The program not only creates ties
between children on different continents, it creates
colleagueship between educators.

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 will be asked to
arrive in Israel within 72 hours for a two-week stay to
provide support to the hospital.
In order to ensure program success, volunteer dry runs
are conducted each year. The February 2016 trip saw
twelve Columbus-area healthcare professionals, mostly
physicians, make the journey to train with their Israeli
co-professionals. They also enjoyed local hospitality.

Advocacy

Security

Israel continues to be challenged on


a regular basis by terrorism and nonconventional threats to its security
and even its very existence. 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. Thats why our JCRC
partners with Hillel, Chabad, ADL, and
Ohio Jewish Communities to educate
our constituents on the importance of
a safe and secure Israel to the Jewish
people, to America and to the world.

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 partner with a wide range
of experts to alert Jewish institutions to
threats. We identify and disseminate
best practices for Jewish institutions in
central Ohio.

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.

Holocaust Education
Last year, the JCRCs Holocaust Education Committee (HEC) engaged more than
4,000 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.

Gahanna School's Paper Clip Project


Gahanna Lincoln High School students are getting a lesson on life and it all revolves around paper clips six
million of them, to be exact. History teacher Jennifer Candor says the six million paper clips represent the six
million Jews killed during the Holocaust in World War II.
Candor reached out to the Federation to provide educational materials and speakers for her class. The speakers
consist of volunteer survivors who tell their personal stories about the horrors of the Holocaust and the results
of intolerance.
Through the Federation, Candor has been able to get her
students involved in a campaign that brings perspective on
the tragedy of the Holocaust. If you are interested in donating

Holocaust Survivors
The Federations Holocaust Survivors Initiative ensures that Columbus survivors of Nazi persecution live their
remaining years in dignity. There are more than 242 survivors of Nazi persecution 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.
This year we were thrilled to help Jewish Family Services receive an additional $1.1 million from the German
Claims Conference and the Jewish Federations of North America to assist our survivors.

For us, it is very

important that when we


call, someone is there to
help us. The Federation
gave a very good response

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.
