This year the Annual Campaign Theme of the Jewish Federation of Omaha is
“The Strength of a People. The Power of Community”.  When we think about those two distinct but interconnected ideas, we think of how perfectly these two sentences exemplify what it means to be part of our Omaha Jewish community at this particular moment in time.

The past two years have shown us how strong we are. How we’ve come together to support one another – from embracing the children on our campus at our preschool, the Pennie Z. Davis Early Learning Center, and the Friedel Jewish Academy to protecting the residents in our Rose Blumkin Jewish Home – and everyone in-between. This doesn’t happen by accident. Rather it happens through the professionalism of our staff and the support of our community. It happens because of you.
