The Jewish Federation of Cincinnati will hold its 117th Annual Meeting—Cincinnati 2020 LIVE—on Thursday, May 23, at 7 p.m., at the Mayerson JCC. Attendees will pay tribute to our agencies’ and congregations’ achievements in the past year and honor our community’s volunteers and professionals who are making Cincinnati 2020 a reality. They will also be the first to hear about a generous gift to the Jewish Federation, which will fund a new Cincinnati 2020 initiative that focuses on encouraging young adults to move to and stay in Cincinnati.
The Annual Meeting will also celebrate the local Jewish organizations and congregations with the premiere of a video highlighting the achievements of the past year, as well as showcasing the programs that have reached the entire community. Another focus of the meeting will be to celebrate the work of volunteers and professionals from throughout the Jewish community.
The Jewish Federation of Cincinnati is proud to announce that young adult giving to the 2013 Cincinnati’s Community Campaign has increased 21% from 2012, from about $190,000 to about $230,000, to date. A total of 200 young adults, ages 21-45, have made an average gift of $1,150 to this year’s Campaign.
This increase is largely due to the leadership of the two Young Adult Division (YAD) Campaign Chairs, Ariella Cohen and David Wise.
