2010 ANNUAL REPORT

Building Community Together with

for the future


“...strengthens the bonds between the Jews of the Palm Beaches and the people, land, history and culture of Israel.” Mission Statement The Jewish Federation of Palm Beach County is the community-building organization of the Jewish community. Our mission is to strengthen Jewish identity, energize the relationship with Israel, and meet human needs that are uniquely the obligation of the Jewish community.

Strengthen Jewish Identity The Federation — in furtherance of its commitment to strengthen Jewish identity — works with Jewish institutions to create opportunities for Jewish learning and Jewish experience. Energize the Relationship with Israel The Federation assists in the economic development of Israel, supports the ingathering of Jews to the historic Jewish homeland, and strengthens the bonds between the Jews of the Palm Beaches and the people, land, history and culture of Israel. Meet Human Needs The Federation helps — through a network of affiliated agencies — to develop and maintain, in a Jewish framework, high-quality human services to individuals and families. The Federation also helps Jews — anywhere in the world — who are persecuted, oppressed or at-risk. Our Methods To carry out its mission, the Federation identifies Jewish communal priorities, raises funds and develops other financial resources, mobilizes leadership, develops plans and allocates resources to build a better Jewish community. Federation develops and assists a network of communal organizations to carry out programs and provide service.

Message from President Arthur S. Loring and Chief Executive Officer Jeffrey L. Klein

In the past, our Federation’s success appeared relatively assured. While other Jewish Federations’ campaigns were stagnant or even decreasing, we assumed that our Federation would continue to grow. Of course, we can no longer take this for granted. Last year, many in our community were suffering. Federation and its partner agencies needed to do more with less. Our fundraising efforts dropped for the first time in decades. Hopefully, we are beginning to see an upswing from the economic freefall that impacted so many. However, some economists say that Florida will not turn around as quickly as other parts of the country.

“Given these challenging times, we still have much to be proud of, including the commitment that was demonstrated to the numerous programs funded during the past year.”

Given these challenging times, we still have much to be proud of, including the commitment that was demonstrated to the numerous programs funded during the past year. Our network of partner agencies ensured that vital social services and Jewish-oriented programs continued and expanded throughout the community. The JCC of the Greater Palm Beaches opened its new home in Palm Beach Gardens, JCC North, reaching out to the growing number of Jewish residents in the northern portions of our service area. Meanwhile, the Lore and Eric F. Ross JCC in Boynton Beach continued to be a focal point for the Jewish community in our southern service area. The Ferd & Gladys Alpert Jewish Family & Children’s Service expanded its reach to Lake Worth and Boynton Beach. The Lola and Saul Kramer Senior Services Agency, a MorseLife agency receiving support from Federation, expanded its home health care and congregate meals programs, further ensuring that more seniors received the care they desperately needed. The Lorraine & Jack N. Friedman Commission for Jewish Education (CJE) has a Jewish family life program that oversees the popular PJ Library® of the Greater Palm Beaches program, bringing books and music of Jewish content to more than 1,200 children in our area. The Arthur I. Meyer Jewish Academy announced an educational endowment program that will benefit the area’s children in the future. Federation’s Jewish Teen Initiative continues to impact hundreds of Jewish youth in our community by providing social, learning and volunteer experiences. Through subsidies and scholarships, Federation provided youth with post-b’nai mitzvah programs at CJE’s Judaica Institute, and scholarships for Gesher Hai, Bonim Fellows, March of the Living and other life-transforming trips in Israel. These are only a few highlights from this year of activities that took place throughout our community. Of course, there is much more to provide for the betterment of all of those whom we serve. 3


Caring for our seniors has been both a part of our tradition and a priority for our Federation. A Federation-managed program, the Jewish Community Assistance Network (JCAN) provides free or reduced-price programs that keep more than 2,500 seniors active and connected with the Jewish community in six neighborhoods throughout the county. From using a bus service to purchase kosher foods for Shabbat to health and wellness screenings, JCAN provides a variety of valuable services tailored to the specific needs of each neighborhood. Federation knows that synagogues perform a vital role for residents seeking spiritual grounding, social and educational programs, and communal holiday celebrations. Federation believes that synagogues are centers of Jewish vibrancy. Through the Synagogue Institute, now in its third year, Federation has worked with synagogues to make a collective effort and priority to outreach and engage the thousands of unaffiliated in our midst. This past year, the Synagogue Institute worked individually with congregations to help them strengthen their operations in the areas of marketing, public relations and social networking efforts; brought in experts to discuss ways to envision a new synagogue model; provided more exposure to synagogues through Federation’s website and advertising; and served as an ongoing resource to synagogues to help them grow membership. More innovative programs are being conceived through this valued and necessary partnership. As always, Israel has been a key focus. We celebrated 62 years of Israel’s independence with two joyous, free events held in Boynton Beach and Palm Beach Gardens that attracted hundreds of people. Twenty-five area teens enjoyed Israel and strengthened their connection to Judaism on the Gesher Hai tour, overseen by Federation’s Israel and Overseas department. In addition, Federation provided funding for the Bonim Fellows, which brought local teens to our partnered communities in Israel for service projects, and the March of Living, where teens traveled to the concentration camps in Europe followed by celebrating Independence Day in Israel. Hundreds of South Florida young adults travel there as well through the Taglit-Birthright Israel program, which is directly funded by our Federation. We also supported our international partners — the Jewish Agency for Israel (JAFI) and the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee (JDC) — that broaden our reach to 65 countries where Jewish people live. Even though JAFI and the JDC faced significant budget reductions last year, these organizations continue to be a lifeline for Jews in distress and peril, those who need basic necessities, those who want to immigrate to Israel and those who want to stay connected with their Jewish identity. Our reach extends beyond South Florida and touches the lives of hundreds of thousands of our Jewish family all over the globe. Through our partners, we directly fund programs that benefit all age groups and provide for the needs of the Jewish community of St. Petersburg, Russia. We share in the economic redevelopment and growth of Tzfat, Hatzor Haglilit and Rosh Pina, our partnered communities in the Tzahar Region in Israel, along with aiding hundreds of at-risk children in our Youth Futures program. We better the lives of hundreds of Ethiopian-Israelis through our Parents and Children Together (PACT) programs in Ramla, Israel.

at-risk somewhere in the world will lose the compassion and caring that represents the Jewish People. A Federation concerned only with vibrancy here at home has lost the collective Federation’s purpose — to create a strong Jewish People. We must ensure that our Federation continues and expands its engagement with Israel and the Jewish People. At the same time, we have a sacred duty to build a strong Jewish community here — one that cares, educates and touches the lives of many. In 2006, Federation conducted a strategic plan. This very good document proposed initiatives that have already begun and others that have not happened yet. We are looking at this plan again to adapt it to the current economic environment in our community. We need to put tremendous emphasis on outreach to the next generation. This is neither the task of the Federation alone, nor of an individual agency, a particular synagogue or any one institution. We have to be interconnected, collaborative and strategic. We need to work in the most creative ways possible to make compelling options and gateways available to young Jewish families. They are a critical population to the future of this and every other Jewish community. They are also critical to long-term financial support. We need to have multiple strategies of engagement as well. Some individuals are going to express themselves through a religious or community dimension; some in formal programs or informal educational frameworks. We have a diverse population and we need to think creatively together about how best to engage as many Jews as possible. We need to meet people where they are, not where we want them to be. We need to help them begin their “Jewish Journey.” Whenever someone is asked to define the purpose of Federation, so many instinctively say that it is a fundraising organization. The tools of resource development and planning are extraordinarily important. We need to make the acquisition of new gifts at all levels and outreach to more members of our community a priority for Federation. Another priority is challenging our existing donors to make their most meaningful pledges, whether through an Annual Campaign gift, endowment or designated gifts. However, that is not the definition of Federation. Resource development is the vital means to a an end, which is to build a strong and vibrant Jewish community. It enables us to make possible vital services to strengthen and maintain the Jewish People here, in Israel and throughout the world. Our mission is well-defined. Our goals and ambitions for the Jewish People are many. As we continue to move forward during a period of uncertainty, we need to work together in a spirit of deep, mutual respect for our traditions, our values and our diversity. This will assure that the greatest accomplishments of the Jewish Federation of Palm Beach County and the entire Jewish community are ahead of us.

“We must ensure that our Federation continues and expands its engagement with Israel and the Jewish People.”

A Federation not deeply connected to Israel is diminished and has lost the essence of who we are as a Jewish People. A Federation that is insensitive to aiding Jews 4

Commitment Commitment

“Despite our own situations, we lived generously, invested in our children, provided a voice for those unable to advocate for themselves...”

The Jewish Federation of Palm Beach County is dedicated to the community and the traditions of Judaism. We are devoted to our mission to build Jewish community and honor our sacred responsibilities. The past year has been challenging, but it has also been inspirational. We’ve continued to put the needs of the world’s Jews — in Israel, the former Soviet Union and particularly here in the greater Palm Beaches — at the forefront. We’ve continued to uphold our dedication to Torah, tikkun olam (repair of the world) and tzedakah (charitable giving). Despite our own situations, we lived generously, invested in our children, provided a voice for those unable to advocate for themselves, and funded programs, services and emergency responses to create a spirit of giving and optimism for ourselves and the world. We are dedicated to fulfilling these and many other objectives, such as:

• During their winter break, teens from the greater Palm Beaches and their peers from the Tzahar Region, Federation’s partnered communities in Israel, explored their Jewish identities, studied with each other and began long-term friendships through the Ambassadors Program.

• Federation’s Jewish Community Relations Council continued to be at the forefront of issues impacting and/or concerning the Jewish community, vigilantly pursuing sanctions against Iran and advocating for Israel. The department held a successful forum on domestic terrorism that featured legal, and local and national security experts.

• The award-winning Anne & Sam Klein Jewish Literacy program, part of the Federation’s Jewish Community Relations Council, trained and placed reading partners in one of 50 participating elementary schools in Palm Beach County, helping improve the reading skills of more than 3,700 students from kindergarten to fifth grade.

• Kramer Senior Services, a Federation-funded program of MorseLife, expanded its home health care and meal programs, establishing the West Palm Beach Kosher Adult Congregate Meal Site and adding a Medicare-certified skilled home health agency.

• The 10-year-old Senior Subsidies program provided direct, immediate benefits to nearly 800 area seniors in need of adult daycare, home healthcare, Meals-on-Wheels, medication management and/or counseling, among other critical services.

• The sixth year of The Ewa & Dan Abraham Project pursued programmatic themes: the Middle East, spirituality and Black-Jewish interfaith relations. The year’s highlight featured a dialogue with Martin Luther King III and Rabbi Marc Schneier, attended by more than 500 people.

• Federation directly aided the 110,000 members of the Jewish community of St. Petersburg, Russia, bringing kindergartens to the young, Jewish study and summer camps to youth, and financial assistance and medicine to the aged, as well as other programs for every age group.

• The new JCC North in Palm Beach Gardens brought a full calendar of programs for the whole family to a portion of Federation’s growing service area.

• Nearly 250 local business leaders and professionals gathered to hear former football player, coach, sports analyst, business entrepreneur and philanthropist Mike Ditka at Federation’s 6th Annual Men’s Nite Out event.

• During the spring, teens from Palm Beach County participated in the annual March of the Living, walking through the death camps of Poland to memorialize The Holocaust, then continued their journey to Israel to commemorate and celebrate the creation of the Jewish state.

• Ferd & Gladys Alpert Jewish Family & Children’s Service expanded to best accommodate the needs of our community, bringing services to the southern and western communities with a satellite office in Lake Worth.

• Federation nourishes those unable to feed themselves through the funding of kosher food pantries, Rosh Hashanah and Passover meals, and holiday celebrations through the Jewish Hunger Response.

Federation’s Jewish Community Assistance Network (JCAN) operated in six communities throughout Palm Beach County, providing health, wellness and social programs for more than 2,000 senior participants, helping to promote aging-in-place and preventing isolation.

• Human rights activist, current JAFI leader and author Natan Sharansky was the featured guest speaker at two Federation events: the Business & Professions Division (B&P) “Lunch with a Legend” and our 2010 Campaign Opening, which drew more than 500 participants.

• More than 250 people in their 30s, 40s and 50s came together to celebrate their shared heritage at this year’s Blue Jeans Ball events. 6

Hope

Hope Jewish life is flourishing in the greater Palm Beaches. We’ve provided new opportunities for Jewish learning and experiences, and connected in unprecedented ways. We have reached out, energized, and maximized programs and services to strengthen Jewish identity. We have provided support and guidance, enlightened and inspired. We have strengthened the bond between Israelis and Americans, and shared resources to enhance our community, Israel, its people and Jewish communities throughout the world. We know that our Federation will continue to preserve and protect the worldwide Jewish community. We can — and will — provide for and improve the quality of life for all Jews. In good times and in bad, we will continue to put our dollars to work where they will have the biggest, most immediate impact. We will continue to build community together...every day.

• Our Synagogue Institute worked with area congregations to help them strengthen their operations in the areas of marketing, public relations and social networking efforts, as well as offered ongoing resources to ensure local synagogues continue to play a key role in engaging the community in Jewish life. • The Emerging Leadership Project, a collaboration between Federation’s Campaign Department and the Mandel Center for Excellence in Leadership, was designed to nurture and develop the next generation of Federation and Jewish communal leadership. The inaugural group of 16 young professionals completed the first of a two-year content-based program. • More than 400 children and their parents are receiving assistance to ensure a successful beginning through Youth Futures, developed by the Jewish Agency for Israel and funded by Federation in the partnered communities of the Tzahar Region. The program works with at-risk children, providing them with a mentor and a connection to social services, to raise their self-esteem, improve their grades in school and support them at home. • Area families of first-time campers and those seeking assistance with the cost of overnight camp applied for Federation’s Campership Incentive Grants and the

8

Overnight Camp Scholarship Program to make a youth Jewish camp experience more affordable and available.

• Federation supported Hillel Foundations of Florida Campus Life at seven state colleges and universities, strengthening Jewish identity for more than 31,000 young adults. • Federation’s Jewish Teen Initiative engaged 300 teens to participate in Jewish Student Union Clubs at area middle schools and 10 high schools, connecting them to synagogue youth groups, community programs, service learning projects and Israel trips. • Ten Palm Beach County high school students participated in Federation’s Bonim Fellows summer experience in Israel, volunteering within the Tzahar Region — Federation’s partnered communities of Tzfat, Rosh Pina and Hatzor Haglilit. • Thanks to funds and donations secured by Federation, the Lorraine & Jack N. Friedman Commission for Jewish Education (CJE), the joy of Jewish books and music was provided to more than 1,200 children ages six months to six years in our community through the PJ Library® of the Greater Palm Beaches.

• Twenty-five area teens participated in Federation’s Gesher Hai (Hebrew for living bridge) Israel experience during the summer.

• • Federation’s young emissary from Rosh Pina, one of three twinned cities in Israel’s Tzahar Region, met with and taught our area’s youth about our partnership, modern-day Israel and Israeli culture. •

Federation funded the Taglit-Birthright Israel program, which offers 10-day, life changing trips for college students and young professionals where participants deepen their connection to Judaism.

Substantial tuition assistance was provided to the Arthur I. Meyer Jewish Academy through Federation funding, allowing day school education to be more attainable to area children and feasible for their families.

Ilan Shohat, the youngest mayor currently serving in Israel, visited our community to share his vision for rejuvenating his city of Tzfat, one of Federation’s Partnership 2000 communities, which included plans to increase tourism through kabbalah and move the city forward with the construction of Israel’s fifth medical school and a research facility.

“We have provided support and guidance, enlightened and inspired.” 9


Report from

Report from

Judith A. Levy Annual Campaign Chair

Sanford M. Baklor Planned Giving & Endowments Chair I started this year believing that anything is possible, a conviction that motivated me throughout the season. How else could we put the past behind us and come together to ensure that our Federation would be there for those who needed us the most? Campaign 2010 provided a lifeline to people in distress, brought care to the vulnerable, nurtured Jewish learning and warmly embraced the unaffiliated. Being positive, both in thought and spirit, enabled us to secure more than $2 million in new and increased gifts from 2,000 new donors, helping us offset anticipated decreases and losses. Additionally, we raised $3.8 million in designated funds for our local and overseas partners. Coupled with our $19 million allocation, our financial resources totaled $22.8 million. The Women’s Division, under the leadership of President and Campaign Chair Linda Cortell Benjamin, raised $8.4 million, representing 44 percent of total funds raised. Thank you to the many women who worked tirelessly on behalf of women’s philanthropy.

“A debt of gratitude is also extended to our donors, and volunteers of our affiliates and country club communities...”

Funds raised for the Jewish Federation of Palm Beach County’s Annual Campaign go into the Federation’s “checking account” to meet the day-to-day needs of our partner agencies, and commitments to Israel and other parts of the world. Funds developed for endowment go into the community’s “savings account.” Many of our sister federations were able to weather serious financial storms by tapping into their unrestricted funds, and other discretionary endowment and special fund assets during the economic downturn. Our Federation could not do this because its financial reservoir is dangerously low. Now, more than ever, it is critical to the future of our community for our supporters to consider creating a permanent Jewish legacy. Do it for yourself, do it for your community. Just do it! The Planned Giving & Endowments department helps donors maximize their tax and philanthropic benefits while developing permanent endowment resources to ensure the continuity of important programs and services for Jews in the greater Palm Beaches, Israel and around the world. Over the past year, the Federation, through its various endowments, donor advised funds and supporting foundations, distributed more than $7 million. Of that amount, 77 percent of all charitable distributions went to the Federation, its partner agencies or other programs and projects in Israel. The remainder was distributed to other charitable organizations that qualify for grants under the Federation’s guidelines.

Grant Distributions Federation, partner agencies, overseas partners and Federation projects – 77%

A debt of gratitude is also extended to our donors, and volunteers of our affiliates and country club communities for providing the foundation of our Annual Campaign, finding creative ways to implement events and taking on expanded roles in raising sponsorship dollars. While we had a challenging year, the collective action of our community reinforced that we truly can accomplish anything. How great is our pride to promote and assure Jewish Peoplehood; help children learn the meaning of being Jewish; help young people embark on life-transforming trips to Israel; help families share programs celebrating Jewish identity; and help seniors live independent, dignified lives. Thank you for being part of the team and helping to fulfill the obligation we have as Jews to care for each other.
