Annual Campaign Leadership

The Jewish Federation of Omaha will kick off its Annual Campaign on September 5th, 2017.  The campaign theme, “For Every Generation, Federation,” is especially fitting this year, as two generations within one family will be serving as the Annual Campaign Chairs.  Dana and Michael Kaufman, along with her parents, Ruth and Joseph Erman, will chair the 2018 Annual Campaign.

Dana wants everyone to understand the significance of contributing to the Federation’s campaign.

“The Federation provides support and services for every generation and, at some point, many in our community will take advantage of those services. Whether it's early childhood education, scholarships for summer camps or college, senior living - or simply using the JCC facilities like the fitness center or pool, the Federation truly is for all ages - from generation to generation. I encourage every member of our community to stop by the Jewish Community Center. If you haven’t been on campus in a while, take a tour. Walk the halls, feel the excitement of the smiling campers or the children in their buggies on their way from the CDC to the Rose Blumkin Jewish Home, look at the classes offered, and participate in the programming available for all age groups. Check in with agencies like Jewish Family Service, which provides counseling, food pantry and other assistance for families in need; the list goes on. Without your support, we cannot sustain our community.”
