Cathy’s Whim – Let’s Talk About Israel and Antisemitism

How do we speak with one Jewish voice? We have varying perspectives on Israel’s path to peace. Our Jewish community is comprised of a wide range of religiosity and practice. We have different ways in which we engage in our Jewish culture. Certainly, our politics vary.

Cathy’s Whim – Support for Israel

The Jewish Federation of Greater Dayton has always been a fervent supporter of Israel. We believe in Israel’s right to exist as a safe and sovereign state. At this perilous time, it is incumbent on us to stay informed of the current situation in Israel and take action when necessary.

Cathy’s Whim – Oy ~ do I have a program for you!!

On occasion, a parent will call us asking, “How do I get my child involved in young adult programming?” It is always exciting to get these calls because more often than not, parents take the initiative in deciding what is best for their adult children.

Cathy’s Whim – Let Us Continue to Help, and Let Us Not Forget

Let Us Continue to Help, and Let Us Not Forget Today is Yom Hashoah – Holocaust Remembrance Day....

Cathy’s WHIM – Freedom for All on Passover

Over the past two weeks, we have seen hate once again come to the surface with two mass shootings – one of which greatly affected our friends in the Asian community.

Cathy’s WHIM – One Year

Often times, anniversaries call for a celebration. This past week marked a very important anniversary in our world, but this certainly is no time for celebration. It was exactly one year ago today that our staff would all be together working under one roof.

Cathy’s WHIM – Over 100 Years of Progress

This Monday, March 8th, is International Women’s Day. Many organizations around the globe will spend the day honoring the many incredible women of our world – past and present. We are no exception.

Cathy’s WHIM – Let Me Hear From You

The COVID-19 pandemic has changed our world in multiple ways. One major change has been in the way people work. Email and phone calls now replace casual chats with co-workers. Zoom meetings have become a staple in our workdays.

Cathy’s WHIM – Supporting Innovation

When our Innovation Grants program was launched almost 10 years ago, the idea was to support unique, one-of-a-kind, and collaborative programs in our Dayton Jewish community. Over the years, we have seen many initiatives take shape; however, one in particular has grown from an idea to an integral part of Jewish Dayton.

Cathy’s WHIM – Where there is life, there is hope

Today is International Holocaust Remembrance Day. While many countries have their own Holocaust Remembrance Day, January 27th is a day for the entire world to take pause and honor the memories of those who perished, learn from those who have shared their stories of survival, and reflect on how we can ensure such an atrocity never happens again.
