Thirteen Jewish communal agencies and synagogues that have partnered with the Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia in the Areivim Legacy Community Project received recognition from Federation leadership last month for successfully reaching their financial goals. Federation is working with its partners to raise community awareness about the importance of creating and building endowment funds to secure the future of our Jewish community. 

During the first year of their Areivim involvement, all partners completed a ­total of 151 signed Letters of Intent. This translates to more than $7 million in future philanthropic revenues.
