Thank you so much for the article, “A Strong Personal Connection” that appeared in the Baltimore Jewish Times (Sept. 6). Recognizing that a connection to Israel is core to increased Jewish engagement, I’ve enjoyed working with Michael Saxon to help develop The Associated: Jewish Community Federation of Baltimore’s Israel Engagement Center initiative. As we move forward, I am excited to work with my new co-chair, Yehuda Neuberger, to evaluate the impact of these programs. This year, we expect to expand our efforts and provide even more innovative programming to ensure our community members continue to connect closely to Israel and its people.
