Dear Colleagues,

We have made great strides in establishing the foundation upon which JFNA and Federations, through the Global Planning Table (GPT), will realize its vision – to inspire the Jewish Federations’ collective global work and drive collective solutions to important issues within the global Jewish community.

The next stage of the Global Planning Table’s work requires deeper integration of its work with our Israel and Overseas (I&O) team. Our I&O professionals have been instrumental in the GPT’s work this year and bring tremendous knowledge of, and experience with, the work of Federations and our partners in Israel and around the world.

I wanted you to know that, effective September 1, 2012, I will be leaving our staff and returning to what I love the most, my role as a volunteer leader and supporter of The Jewish Federations of Greater Washington and Richmond, VA. I am thrilled that Senior Vice President for Israel and Overseas, Becky Caspi, and her team will assume responsibility for the GPT. Becky will work closely with GPT Chair David Butler and our U.S.-based team to ensure a smooth transition.

As part of this next stage in the GPT, the General Assembly planning team will transition to JFNA’s Executive Office and the Research and Analysis department will return to the Strategic Marketing and Communications department. The upcoming 2013 Planners Institutes will be planned in partnership with the chairs and JFNA’s Consulting Department.

I want to thank all of you for your incredible support during my time here. You have provided great insight, and your remarkable dedication to the Jewish People will always inspire me. While I will miss all of you, I look forward to working with you as we build our Jewish community for generations to come.
