UJC Responds to the Economic Crisis

As providers of vital services to Jews in North America, Israel and around the world, the UJC and the Federation system are partnering to strengthen the Jewish community amid the ongoing global economic crisis. One of the ways they are assisting member Federations is through their 2009 Investment Institute, Successful Endowment Investing in a Time of Global Uncertainty, that opens today. Top investment professionals and academic experts will address topics essential to navigating investment programs through the current global market turbulence.

“During turbulent financial times such as these, the ability to network, share information, understand the pitfalls of the past and quantify risks moving forward is no longer an option,” said Louis Wolfson III, founder and co-chair of the UJC Investment Institute and former investment committee chair of the Greater Miami Jewish Federation.

While this is a closed event, several of the key sessions will be video-taped and publicly available on the Institute link.
