Welcome back to our 2017 Board Co-Chair Lori Schwartz and President & CEO Arlene Miller! They just returned from an inspiring Jewish Federations of North America Mission to Ukraine and Israel. Here’s what Arlene had to say about how Orange County is making a difference in these communities:
"We witnessed firsthand the work of our community’s Israel and overseas dollars on the ground in Ukraine and Israel. It was inspiring to see just a few examples of how our collective efforts help hundreds of thousands of Jews in 70 countries around the world. We fund our partners to connect young families with Jewish community and provide life-saving aid for the elderly, the disabled, and other at-risk populations. Very simply, it's about one person connecting with another person to build our community."
