Cathy’s WHIM – Equality or Equity?

In my role as CEO, much of my job requires me to make decisions. When making these decisions, I have to weigh several factors.

Cathy’s WHIM – Ignorance is Not Bliss

It’s hard to believe that in the year 2019, issues that seemed to be a thing of the past are not only still a part of our world, but growing in intensity.

Cathy’s WHIM – Stronger Than Hate

On October 27, 2018 – what was to be a peaceful Shabbat morning – 11 members of the Pittsburgh Jewish community lost their lives in a horrific act of hatred.

Cathy’s WHIM – Leaving a Legacy

When my 8-month old son, Noah, died in 1994, I was completely heartbroken. Losing my only child devastated me.

Cathy’s WHIM – Partners In Combating Hate: The Anti-Defamation League

This past weekend, I received a statement from the Youngstown Area Jewish Federation. A 20-year-old man posted a video on Instagram on July 11th which showed someone shooting a semi-automatic rifle with the caption, “Police identified the Youngstown Jewish Family Community shooter as local white nationalist Seamus O’Rearedon.”

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.
