Steve McDonald, Deputy Director, Communications and Public Affairs at CIJA, presented Calgarians with some fascinating data about engaging the under-40 population in Jewish life. The data presented on November 21 was gathered in a survey sponsored by CIJA and JFC-UIA – and is useful to Federation and other local Jewish agencies looking to meet the needs and aspirations of all generations.
Four Calgarians represented Calgary Jewish Federation during a very busy and productive visit to the Alberta Legislature on November 29. Intensive small group meetings with Cabinet Minister Ricardo Miranda, Premier Notley’s Deputy Chief of Staff Jen Anthony, UCP Leader Jason Kenney, and Deputy Leader Leela Aheer were followed by a Wine and Cheese reception attended by many MLAs, staffers and friends of the Jewish community. Thank you to our partners, the Jewish Federation of Edmonton, CIJAand CJPAC, and to all those who took the time to meet with us!
