Why I AM Giving Money to the Atlanta Jewish Federation This Year

| Categories 2012 Campaign, Atlanta Jewish Federation, Jewish Federation | | 1 Comment

... and more than doubled my 2010 contribution.

My old blog post about not giving money to the Atlanta Jewish Federation (in 2011) and its criticisms, made a much bigger wave than expected. Way too often when mentioning the blog post people nod their heads in recognition. That's why I'm publicly announcing my choice to give in 2012.

Why am I giving to the 2012 campaign?

I'm hopeful. Atlanta has a new Federation President, Michael P. Horowitz, from Detroit. No one seems to know much about him and his affinities. However, my dollars are a hopeful vote for progress.

Join me in donating (or increasing your donation) and speak up for progress: continued movement toward an open, transparent, authentic, inclusive, efficient, highly-functional and unified Jewish community in Atlanta, GA. 

Looking forward to a growth-filled 5772,

Shana Tova,

Jennie Rivlin Roberts

Hmmmm…this is interesting. I used to work at the Detroit Jewish News (I was let go due to downsizing in 2007)

While I was there I sold advertising for what USED to be their sister paper (before it was sold, The Atlanta Jewish Times, I sold advertising over the phone from Detroit to Atlanta)

The Detroit Jewish News (I live in Detroit) is owned by Arthur Horowitz, I venture to say that Michael is related to Arthur)
