The Mission of the Jewish Federation of Greater Orlando is to nurture a unified Jewish Community that transcends generations and neighborhoods.
Impact Summary from the Nonprofit This past year, the Federation has continued to inspire the Jewish community. We have worked to accomplish this by providing opportunities for families to grow together, foster social groups that connect others to lifelong friends, foster networks that help connect business professionals in the community, and connect our local community to Israel. We are able to inspire our community through innovative programming and committed volunteers and donors. JFGOís Womenís Division Annual Choices event had over 400 participants. This is the largest fundraising event for women in the Jewish community. Inspiring Jewish identity has been a mainstay of the Federationís efforts. Through the PJ Library program, over 300 children and their families, who may have no other contact with Jewish life, receive a Jewish-themed bedtime story book each month for free. The program has books for children through age five years old. Beit Hamidrash, our community Hebrew High program for teens in 8th through 12th grade, has over 200 students enrolled. In addition to quality education classes, various programs are intertwined into the curriculum, including one for Parents and a Teen Leadership trip to Washington, D.C. In the upcoming year this program will undergo some exciting new changes! In order to accommodate teens' busy lives, Beit Hamidrash will begin offering seminar style classes this fall. Students will have the opportunity to complete a full class in five weeks. Students who may be committed to an activity during the fall, can still join later in the year! Or Hadash, our young adult Jewish professional group, continues to welcome newcomers with a wide array of social and philanthropic programming. The group has launched the initiative, Or Hadash Gives. At each event, a portion of the admission fee is set aside for special programs. Dor Shalom, a new social and outreach program for singles and couples 40 plus years old has been very well received with many members enjoying social and educational opportunities. We entered our fourth year of partnership with the Israeli city of Kiryat Motzkin. The Partnership supports various projects in Kiryat Motzkin, including an after-school program for underprivileged youth and Holocaust education for second and third generation Israelis. Most recently we have embarked on bringingSifriyat Pijamato Kiryat Motzkin which will bring 700 children Jewish-themed bedtime story books each month at no cost to their family. Over 250 residents from teens, young families and the 39ers from our local community have visited Israel through Federation efforts. Internally, the Federation is heading into a new and recharged direction. We have strengthened our core operations, set new priorities to meet the changing needs of the community; and we are reinvigorating our fundraising model. We are currently in a leadership transition searching for a new Executive Director. Plans to hire and have a new Director in place will be completed before the Fall.
