A Message of Unity for Sukkot
In this Sukkot message by Jewish Funders Network CEO Andres Spokoiny, the holiday is explored as a celebration of unity and togetherness in the Jewish calendar. It recounts a pivotal moment in Jewish history during the time of the Second Temple, when at the height of its power, divisions in the Jewish kingdom planted the seeds of its destruction. Take a moment to read this cautionary tale about the consequences of corruption and division, and a call for contemporary unity and mutual responsibility within the Jewish community during Sukkot.
Don’t miss the opportunity to hear from some of the leading Jewish funders and their grantee partners as we explore the challenges of Measuring Impact in Complex Fields. Facilitated by Kiyomi Kowalski of Project Sh’ma, this roundtable conversation will focus on the field of antisemitism with Shayna Rose Triebwasser, Executive Director of the Righteous Persons Foundation and Amy Spitalnik, CEO of the Jewish Council for Public Affairs; Yana Kalika, President of the Koum Family Foundation and Ken Marcus, Founder and Chairman, Louis D. Brandeis Center for Human Rights Under Law; and representatives of the ADL’s Center for Antisemitism Research.
