The Jewish Federation of Greater Dayton launched our new community-wide visioning project Jewish Dayton Dreams Big in the spring of 2017. This project will help shape and direct our Jewish community over the next 20 years. By “Dreaming Big”, the Federation will help the Jewish community identify the challenges, opportunities, goals, and strategies to maintain and grow a vibrant Jewish community within the Dayton region.

“Without leaps of imagination, or dreaming,
we lose the
excitement of possibilities.
Dreaming, after all, is a form of planning.”
– Gloria Steinem
