On Tuesday, we held our most ambitious event of the program year. We brought our community together in-person and online to celebrate Nancy and Stu Mellan and to kick off our 2021 campaign. Now that the dust has settled, I have one thing to say:
Just in time for Thanksgiving, my heart is full of gratitude for all of the remarkable people who make up our diverse, caring, and vibrant community. Thank you for participating and reminding us of what it feels like to be together! Together, we are stronger. Together, we are better. And together, we will overcome the challenges that persist in the days and months ahead.
Tuesday kicked off our 2021 campaign, which powers our work in Southern Arizona, nationally, and around the world. The Federation is here for your family, for our community, and for those most in need everywhere. We are designed to support and advance this generation and all those that come after. We are here to engage, enrich, and empower Jewish life.
Thank you to everyone who celebrated with us on Tuesday, and thank you to everyone who will partner with us in the next year in our annual campaign as we spread kindness, caring, and compassion through Southern Arizona and the world.
