Creating a Stronger Community

Although each reason for giving to the Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia is unique, there is a common thread – that of building a strong community.

Brandi Lerner: Making a Difference Everywhere

“Celebrating my own Jewish identity and connecting to the Jewish community locally and abroad has always been important to me. By giving to the Jewish Federation, I can help support others within the community to make sure they have access to the same resources that I have.”

Andrew Klazmer: Forming Lifelong Friendships

“Growing up, I saw the enjoyment my parents had being involved in the Jewish Federation. They made lifelong friends while helping strengthen our Jewish community. I wanted to have this same experience.”

Tinisha Thompson: Discovering Faith

“I support the Jewish Federation, because of my life-changing experience on Honeymoon Israel. On the trip, I was able to connect with my partner, who is Jewish, on another level and see firsthand the amazing things that the Jewish community does for one another. I now want to give other interfaith couples a similar opportunity.”

Lauren Danneman: Giving Back

“I give because the Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia is there for the community – from our youngest children at the JCC to kids at camp and day schools, to our seniors and people in need. Personally, I have two sons with disabilities, and the Jewish Federation has given a lot of support to my children. I see the impact within my own home, locally in Philadelphia, in Israel and around the world.”
