Marc's Remarks

Weekly insights, community news, and updates from our President and CEO

5778 Begins - Happy New Year

Rosh Hashanah and 5778 begin this evening. I had always been told that Rosh Hashanah celebrated the “birthday of the world.”

College Life Today?

Last week an important study about experiences for Jewish college students on campus was released by Stanford University, Safe and on the Sidelines – Jewish Students and the Israel-Palestine Conflict on Campus.

End of Summer Devastation

With school back in session and work schedules returning to normal, summer is at least unofficially over. Sadly, however, these are not normal times.


Earlier this week I returned home from a 10-day trip to Israel with Jewish Federation Chair, Ed Tonkin. This trip was special because it was Ed’s first visit.

What a difficult week! What happened in Charlottesville and the responses from our President continue to confound. The President expressed a lack of moral clarity on the situation and issue.
