2019 Twin Cities Cardozo Society Israel Mission

This was also the year the St. Paul Jewish Federation partnered with the Minneapolis Jewish Federation and the Harry Kay Charitable Foundation to conduct the Twin Cities Jewish Population Study, the first survey of our community in 15 years. In addition to reporting that the Twin Cities Jewish population grew 23 percent to 64,800 in 2019, up from around 40,000 in 2004, the study has plenty of data to digest. This information will be extremely useful to local Jewish organizations now and in Dear friends, Thank you for your generous support of the St. Paul Jewish Federation. Our last complete fiscal year

MEET THE PEOPLE YOU HELP Creating an inclusive community “It has made a HUGE difference in the lives of our child, ourselves and our family!”

Standing with Jewish students on campus When Minnesota Hillel reached out to Federation to help bring 450 students, faculty and community members together for a Unity Shabbat on campus the same weekend that a virulently anti-Israel conference was held, we said yes –absolutely. We knew it was important to provide a chamish Jewish experience that weekend, and we wanted students to know the St. Paul Jewish community supports them. A broad coalition of Jewish and non-Jewish students and organizations attended. The event was a partnership between Minnesota Hillel, Chabad, JCRC, St. Paul and Minneapolis Jewish Federations, and other partners.

David (not his real name) was able to attend camp with the help of a Federation Goldberger scholarship. His parents say it made a huge difference: “We could not have afforded Camp Ramah without this help, and our child would not have nearly the same connection to Judaism and the Jewish community.” Federation funds inclusion programs through distributions to our beneficiary agencies and endowments including the Goldberger Family Fund, which provides funds for services for families whose children are on the autism spectrum.

Helping Lenore find a caring community Lenore (not her real name) worked out regularly at the St. Paul JCC. Thanks to a fund provided by Federation, the JCC transported her there through a program that provides rides to elderly and disabled people for medical appointments, shopping and more. Due to a family crisis, Lenore stopped going. The transportation dispatcher became concerned, called to make sure she was okay and convinced her to come back. On the day Lenore returned, the driver told her about another program that day – Lunch for 8. Lenore joined that group and went back to exercising with a personal trainer.

Aliyah of rescue – helping Ethiopian Jews reach Israel In 2019, 663 olim arrived in Israel from Ethiopia. Zigala, the Asrash family patriarch, was on one of the flights. His daughter, Vadia, and her children made Aliyah in 2006, but Zigala stayed behind in Ethiopia with family and waited approval from the Israeli government to move. Every day, as she settled into her new life in Bet Shemesh, Vadia would weep and wonder when her father could finally come to Israel. The Jewish Agency, with support of Jewish Federations, was able to reunite this amazing family.

Creating community connections “What an incredible journey through history, culture, and religion with the best guides and surrounded by neighbors and new friends.” – Matt B. Twenty-one Twin Cities couples went on our second Honeymoon Israel trip. They toured Jerusalem, Masada and the Dead Sea, northern Israel, and Tel Aviv/ Jaffa. But most significantly, the couples developed deep friendships and left Israel as a new family. The group gathered for a reunion Havdalah & dinner after their return and continue to build connections with each other and our local Jewish community.

Inspiring 467 children every month with free PJ Library books “Avi calls her PJ Library books her special holiday books,” says her mom, Jennifer. “We have lots of memories and will create many more snuggling up at bedtime. Our PJ Library books also serve as a reminder of the values and traditions we want to help establish with our daughter. When Avi got her PJ Library tzedakah box, and we explained it to her, she took the giving aspect to heart. One night we had family over, and as they left, she ran to the door and gave each person a coin from her box. It took everyone a while to figure out that she was giving them money in case they were hungry.”

Aiding vulnerable community members Michael and his brother Bob, who has Downs Syndrome, have always been close. Michael was Bob’s primary caregiver, but as Bob’s condition worsened, he was moved to a nursing home. Michael, a client of our partner agency Jewish Family Service of St. Paul (JFS), managed his own disability and low income. Through our support of JFS, we helped Michael visit Bob with a free bus pass for a month. Michael also needed help cleaning his apartment as his own disability advanced, which he received through the JFS Emergency Assistance Fund.

FEDERATION RESPONDS TO COVID-19 When COVID-19 hit in March 2020, Federation set to work to support our Jewish community. Here are ten initial ways the generous support of our donors enabled Federation to provide service and support:

6. Delivered 1,000 much-needed face shields to Sholom. Through our Sovev Kinneret Partnership, we acquired specially designed protective shields made in Israel. 7. Federation board and staff made hundreds of well-check phone calls to community members and offered assistance to those who needed help. 8. Helping Jews worldwide through the COVID-19 response initiated by our international partners, The American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee and The Jewish Agency for Israel. 9. Provided individual hand sanitizers to the St. Paul JCC Early Childhood Center and PJ Library families. 10. Provided face masks to Minnesota Hillel secured through the Consulate General of Israel to the Midwest.

1. Supporting partner agencies. We surveyed community agencies and continue ongoing communication with agency and synagogue leaders to determine their needs. 2. Made $50,000 in emergency grants to three Jewish agencies: Jewish Family Service of St. Paul, St. Paul JCC and Sholom. 3. Provided approximately $20,000 in emergency grants to Jewish summer camps forced to cancel this year. 4. Provided application resources and direct consultation to agencies and synagogues on Paycheck Protection Loans. 5. Launched Virtual Jewish St. Paul, an online resource that connected people to essential services, online meetups, webinars and activities.
