A Letter From Our Leadership

This past year has been filled with accomplishments and impact at the Jewish Federation of Greater Seattle.
A common thread that runs through everything we do for the community is creating and strengthening

Inside this annual report, we are highlighting a selection of our 2018 impacts from the three pillars of our
mission— serving as a community voice, strengthening connections with Israel and World Jewry, and making
investments in Jewish life for today and the next generation. We had great success in 2018 as we pursued our
overarching goals of ensuring Jewish continuity and connecting people to community in ways that are
authentic and meaningful.

All of the Federation’s accomplishments were made possible by YOU. By acting on the Jewish values that
we all share, you have made a difference on many levels— for individuals, families, for Jewish Puget Sound,
for Israel, and for the global Jewish community. Thank you!

Dozens of Jewish communal leaders have come together through the Federation’s Community Convening
Initiative in the past year to identify the biggest challenges facing Jewish Puget Sound and scope out
solutions in a spirit of collaboration. Relationships— some new, many strengthened —have made the
difference in the progress the initiative has made.

In its first two years, a cohort of 13 Jewish organizations (including the Federation) secured an
estimated $10.6 million in legacy gift commitments through the LIFE & LEGACY™ endowment-building
program the Federation is carrying out with the Harold Grinspoon Foundation.

Our 2018 Community Trip to Israel, an amazing experience of discovery and making new friends, was all
about strengthening relationships— with our Jewish homeland and with each other here at home.

These accomplishments and more in 2018 are a testament to a collective dedication to Jewish values— all
of us, together as a community, building on past achievements, present inspiration, and an optimistic view
of what the future holds in store.

From all of us at the Federation,

Thank You !

Nancy B. Greer, President & CEO Sarah Boden, Board Chair

Community Trip to Israel

Our community connected 43 travelers from our local Jewish
community to Israel and its vibrant culture, to Jewish life, and
to each other.

“My message for this trip was that it was all
about relationships. Meeting with each other,
the relationship with the place, the relationship
the place has with us. What you do with it is
the question. You have an opportunity to
pour yourself into that connection and make
it richer, more important in your life.”

— David Isenberg, Creative Israel Trip Co-Chair

“Before I started receiving the hot meals,
I was responsible for buying all my own

difficult without an income. We get one
hot meal per day, which really helps!”
