Every Wednesday evening, after Hebrew school classes officially end, Bookey Lodge fills with the voices of more than 100 3rd through 12th graders who eat dinner together with friends, family members, and teachers as guests of your Federation. Senior high school students and Drake Hillel students, friends who only see each other once a week when they attend Hebrew school, parents stopping to chat as they pick up their kids—all pause to share a few special moments with fellow members of our wonderful Jewish community. It’s a magical moment of fun, laughter, and community building.
Each week, YOU help create this special place where our “kids”—our future—can build relationships that will last them for a lifetime as they build the strong Jewish community of the future in Central Iowa.
These are just a few of the special moments that your donations to the Cornerstone/All-in-One create. We invest in our children. We demand justice for those who cannot advocate for themselves, and fight anti-Semitism wherever we’re needed. We make certain our elderly have the best care possible, and we preserve our history for this and future generations.
The Greater Des Moines Jewish community is a family. Making a contribution to the Cornerstone/All-In-One campaign helps us fund each of these priorities. We hope you feel strongly about the work that is being done by your Federation for our community. Every gift you give makes these services possible. It takes all of us to ensure that we can take care of each other
Please join us in helping to build our strongest Jewish community possible by giving generously to the 2019 Cornerstone/All-in-One Campaign. The success of our Giving Tuesday campaign in surpassing its goal has inspired more matching donors to step forward to MATCH ALL GIFTS UP TO $36,000 made on or before December 31! Thanks to these generous donors, YOUR DONATION will have twice the impact.
