The Jewish Federation of Greater Seattle is now accepting nominations for the 2012 Pamela Waechter Jewish Communal Professional Award. This award is granted annually to honor outstanding local Jewish communal professionals for extraordinary contributions to the greater Seattle Jewish community. The deadline for nominations is Wednesday, April 4, 2012.
Over 70 enthusiastic volunteers gathered at the Stroum Jewish Community Center on Sunday, November 13 for the annual community-wide phone-a-thon, Super Sunday. Calls were made to community members with an opportunity to support the Federation as we raise funds for Jewish organizations both locally and across the globe. This year, Super Sunday raised nearly $120,000.
