Cathy’s WHIM – #Dayton Strong

Our city of Dayton has been inundated with an unprecedented amount of challenges in the past months. This weekend, the pain that has recently been felt in Pittsburgh, in Gilroy, and in El Paso, came to Dayton and it has impacted us all.

On being “The Best Little Jewish Community in the Country”

There is an abundance of activities in Jewish Dayton, including cultural, social, educational, and religious events for people of all ages.

Cathy’s WHIM – A Lasting Impression

Early on in my career, I moved to Chicago to work for the Hyatt Corporation. I was excited to be in a new city, with a new job, and to have the opportunity to meet new people.

Take Me Out to the Ballgame

I love baseball. In fact, one of the items on my bucket list is to visit all of the baseball stadiums in the United States.

Cathy’s WHIM – Neighbors Helping Neighbors

While JFS continues to help our clients, we as a Jewish community can help our neighbors. By opening the Tornado Relief Fund, we will collect donations to be gifted from the Jewish Community as a whole, to the Miami Valley Community Action Partnership and the American Red Cross.

Cathy’s WHIM – Community Concerns – Community Response

The Whim (short for What Inspires Me) was developed to communicate to our community the inspiring stories that emanate from our work as a Jewish Federation. However, my Whim this week expresses not just the inspirational but the disturbing.

Cathy’s WHIM – The Power of a Collective Voice

On April 25th, an anti-Semitic cartoon ran in the international edition of the Times, depicting the Prime Minister of Israel as a dog, leading a blind American president wearing a yarmulke. When I was made aware of this disturbing cartoon, I was deeply bothered.

Cathy’s WHIM – Do you know what today is?

As many of you may be aware, today is a very special day. It is Administrative Professionals Day.

Cathy’s WHIM – A Backpack, a Bear, and Eight Crates of Vodka

I love to read. In fact, I make a point to read every day. There is something magical about escaping in the pages of a good book. Occasionally I come across a book that not only provides me that escape, but also proves to be transformative.

Cathy’s WHIM – Driving Out Darkness

Yesterday I had the privilege of attending the Driving Out Darkness: Cincinnati Regional Summit on Antisemitism and Hate. It was an incredible day where each speaker was more amazing then the next.
