A Letter From Our Leadership

This past year has been filled with accomplishments and impact at the Jewish Federation of Greater Seattle.

A common thread that runs through everything we do for the community is creating and strengthening


Inside this annual report, we are highlighting a selection of our 2018 impacts from the three pillars of our

mission— serving as a community voice, strengthening connections with Israel and World Jewry, and making

investments in Jewish life for today and the next generation. We had great success in 2018 as we pursued our

overarching goals of ensuring Jewish continuity and connecting people to community in ways that are

authentic and meaningful.

All of the Federation’s accomplishments were made possible by YOU. By acting on the Jewish values that

we all share, you have made a difference on many levels— for individuals, families, for Jewish Puget Sound,

for Israel, and for the global Jewish community. Thank you!

Dozens of Jewish communal leaders have come together through the Federation’s Community Convening

Initiative in the past year to identify the biggest challenges facing Jewish Puget Sound and scope out

solutions in a spirit of collaboration. Relationships— some new, many strengthened —have made the

difference in the progress the initiative has made.

In its first two years, a cohort of 13 Jewish organizations (including the Federation) secured an

estimated $10.6 million in legacy gift commitments through the LIFE & LEGACY endowment-building

program the Federation is carrying out with the Harold Grinspoon Foundation.

Our 2018 Community Trip to Israel, an amazing experience of discovery and making new friends, was all

about strengthening relationships— with our Jewish homeland and with each other here at home.

These accomplishments and more in 2018 are a testament to a collective dedication to Jewish values— all

of us, together as a community, building on past achievements, present inspiration, and an optimistic view

of what the future holds in store.

From all of us at the Federation,

Thank You !

Nancy B. Greer, President & CEO

Sarah Boden, Board Chair

Investments in Jewish Life

Programs that invest in low-barrier,

high-impact onramps to Jewish

life and leadership development.

In 2018, the Federation awarded over 300

children with scholarships to attend

overnight camp.

“I have met some of my best

friends there (at camp). There

aren’t many Jewish kids at my

school, and it means a lot to be

with so many at camp. Thanks

so much for making this possible.”

—Erez, 2018 Camp Scholarship Recipient

Did you know that camp is a proven effective way for

children to build a strong sense of Jewish identity and get

in touch with the community?

HOW we create formative, Jewish Puget Sound experiences:

Beginning children’s Jewish journeys by bringing PJ Library & PJ Our Way books

to over 3,000 homes each month.

Building Jewish identity by awarding over 300 Jewish overnight camp

scholarships and $190,000 in scholarships to Jewish day schools.

Developing micro-communities at the neighborhood level through Pop-Up

Shabbats and PJ Library Neighborhood Song & Story Times.

Educating 20 of our community members to become communal leaders through

our Advanced Leadership Development Program (ALDP).

Engaging with our Jewish community through PAVE, our group for adults in their

30s and 40s, and Cardozo, our law affinity group that allows people to celebrate

their Jewish identity uniquely.

| 5

ALDP gives emerging leaders like Heather Hartley skills,

knowledge, and peer networks for taking on communal

leadership responsibilities. Heather credits ALDP for

preparing her to serve Hadassah, ADL, and Limmud Seattle.

PAVE facilitates Jewish life in Seattle by providing a framework for

Jews in their 30s and 40s. We provide a safe, inclusive space for all.

PAVE Your Way Grants allow community members to create their

own Jewish experiences.

“ALDP helped me forge my own path

and assisted me in creating my own

memories, network, and experiences

and to begin to give back to a

community that I feel has already

enriched my life.”

—Heather Hartley, ALDP Graduate

“I haven’t been to a Seder in years, and this

was an incredible experience. Thank you

for creating something so welcoming and

engaging I felt comfortable bringing my

non-Jewish partner to. We both had an

amazing time.”

—PAVE Your Way Seder Attendee

PJ Library books and Neighborhood Song & Story Times

provide engaging entry points into Jewish life— for kids, their

parents, and grandparents too! Through 61 PJ Library Get

Together Grants, Federation helped over 275 families build

Jewish community in creative, exciting ways.

“My kids love getting the books in the

mail each month, not to mention the CDs

and card games…As someone who grew

up in a mostly non-practicing Jewish

household, I am learning more about

Judaism at the same time as my children.”

—PJ Our Way mom, Seattle

Cardozo Society provides a variety of Continuing Legal

Education (CLE’s) opportunities for attorneys to explore legal

topics through a Jewish lens in addition to networking and

creating ratings for judicial candidates.

Past CLE’s Include:

• Affordable Housing: Best Practices and Community Impact

• Paid Family Leave Panel Discussion

• Why Universities Need a Definition of Anti-Semitism

• Marriage Equality in Israel and in the United States

• Legal Implications of the BDS Campaign

• Asylum 101

Israel & World Jewry

Programs and direct investments that

support our connection to our Jewish

community in Israel and overseas.

In 2018, the Federation made it possible for 19

teens to go to Israel on Teen Israel Scholarships.

“My footsteps were quite literally

following the path of those who

walked before me, and what was

once just another desert became

a vibrant, living connection to my

Jewish roots.”

—Miriam, Teen Israel Scholarship Recipient

Did you know Teen Israel Scholarships are made

possible by the Federation, the Samis Foundation, and

our generous donors?

HOW we build connections to Israel & World Jewry:

Gathering, celebrating, and educating the community through Israel-focused

community events, like #NWIsraelFest and the Israel at 70 Celebration.

Hosting young emissaries who infuse Israeli life and culture in Jewish Puget Sound.

Providing financial support to Jewish organizations that help Jews in need

around the world, with a total of $618,128 allocated in 2018, including

$65,503 earmarked towards local Israel engagement programming.

Sending 19 teens on life-changing, immersive Israel experiences through our

Teen Israel Scholarships.

Supporting our Jewish homeland through Israel advocacy.

Traveling to Israel to have unforgettable experiences and make new friends

through our peer trips!

| 7

Community Trip to Israel

Our community connected 43 travelers from our local Jewish

community to Israel and its vibrant culture, to Jewish life, and

to each other.

“My message for this trip was that it was all

about relationships. Meeting with each other,

the relationship with the place, the relationship

the place has with us. What you do with it is

the question. You have an opportunity to

pour yourself into that connection and make

it richer, more important in your life.”

— David Isenberg, Creative Israel Trip Co-Chair

Helping Jews in Need Globally

Vera immigrated to Israel from Uzbekistan 19 years ago.

She receives a hot lunch every day from Leket Israel,

a food security non-profit the Federation supports

directly, thanks to our generous donors like YOU.

“Before I started receiving the hot meals,

I was responsible for buying all my own

food and cooking all my meals, which is

difficult without an income. We get one

hot meal per day, which really helps!”

—Vera, Leket Israel Recipient

| 8

Community Voice

Programs and services that support our

community organizations and community-at-large.

“The SAFE Washington program

that I attended was extremely

worthwhile. We learned practical

things to immediately enhance

our daily security needs and were

able to discuss issues surrounding

communications, Internet, facility

security, and personal safety. The

program was practical, effective,

well-presented, and eye-opening.”

—Jonathan Greene, Dir. of Ops., Hillel UW

HOW we support our community organizations &


Advocating for our community at the Washington State Legislature on issues

that matter to Jewish Puget Sound.

Convening our Jewish community to address issues together, create solutions,

and review outcomes.

“Looking into the eager faces of our Sunday

School students and realizing that they are

the ones to carry our legacy of tradition

to the next generation inspires me. Our

LIFE & LEGACY program will ensure that

future generations will provide continuity.”

—Charles Shelan, Temple Beth Hatfiloh

A More Cohesive Community

Led by the Federation, Jewish organizational leaders are

working through the Community Convening Initiative, a

structured, collaborative process to address the goal to

create a more cohesive community.

“I appreciate the manner in which everyone

came to the table and everyone committed

to better understanding and building trust.”

—Amy Lavin, CEO, Stroum Jewish Community Center

The Community Convening Initiatives:

1. Create a cohesive newcomers initiative.

2. Establish a vibrant Jewish Community Relations Council.

3. Launch a substantial civil discourse initiative.

4. Convene heads of major Jewish organizations regularly.

5. Develop a leadership pipeline for communal institutions.

6. Create greater inter-organizational understanding and


7. Grow a robust Jewish adult education program.
