Message from CEo of the Jewish Federation of Winnipeg Elaine Goldstine

Aug 31, 2018

Dear Community Members,

I hope you are having a good summer. As we approach the year 5779, I would like to wish everyone a happy, healthy new year.

120 DAYS OF IMPACT – 2018 CJA Campaign 

We are gearing up once again for the Annual Combined Jewish Appeal Campaign. Please support our 120 Days of Impact as we have shortened the time period for the campaign to 120 days, thus striving to close the campaign by December 31. Answer the call, take a meeting, and say YES to your canvasser. We have amazing, generous donors and we appreciate all that you do. You are making a difference in your community. Thank you!! Watch for material in the mail or by email in the next few weeks.

NATIONAL NEWS 

Last week, the Province of British Columbia declared a state of emergency due to the rapid spread of wildfires across the province. There are 565 fires currently burning across BC. To date, evacuation orders have displaced over 3,000 Canadians and more than 20,000 people are on evacuation alert or under evacuation order. In response, we have opened a British Columbia Fire Relief Fund. Funds raised will be distributed through the Jewish Federation of Greater Vancouver to communities in British Columbia affected by the crisis.

This month, we welcomed Nikki Holland as the new President and CEO of Jewish Federations of Canada/UIA. We look forward to working with Nikki who brings extensive experience in public affairs and government relations and has been actively involved in the Jewish community, including as a member of the advisory board of the Canadian Jewish Political Affairs Committee. We say thank you and all the best to outgoing President and CEO Linda Kislowicz who will be leaving after 12 years of service to the Canadian Jewish Community. Linda was a tremendous help to the Jewish Federation of Winnipeg over the years, and in particular, through my transition as CEO.
