Capping the 80th annual General Assembly of The Jewish Federations of North America, the JFNA Board of Trustees has approved a new initiative that strengthens the way the Jewish community prioritizes and takes collective action to confront the major challenges of Jews throughout the world.

 

The board created a new Global Planning Table (GPT) that provides a new structure and process for Federations and their partners to analyze the needs of the Jewish people in North America and abroad, determine priorities, and assess the impact of philanthropic giving.

 

The GPT is designed to help ensure that more people are educated and engaged in fundraising and giving.

 

“Our greatest strength in the Federations movement has been our willingness to envision a better world and our ability to work together as a global people to accomplish big goals,” said Kathy Manning, Chair of the JFNA Board of Trustees.

 

“With our combined strength, ideas and action, we believe the Global Planning Table will generate new ideas, attract many more supporters, create important new connections, and enable us to act together strategically to address the challenges facing our global community.”

 

Writing next chapter of Jewish future

The Global Planning Table was developed over the past two years with the consultation of the historic partners of the Jewish Federations, the Jewish Agency for Israel (JAFI) and the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee (JDC).

 

Both organizations and other partners will continue to play critical roles in educating about, evaluating and prioritizing global Jewish needs.

 

“We need an evolving approach to confront the ever-changing needs of the Jewish people,” said Jerry Silverman, president & CEO of JFNA.

 

“While changing the way any system does business is hard, we recognize that we need a 21st century structure and strategies to address the challenges of 21st century. The forward-thinking Global Planning Table will help the Jewish community write the next chapter of our Jewish future.”

 

As designed, the GPT will consist of a GPT Committee including representatives of JFNA and Federations, JAFI, JDC, and chairs of GPT commissions that oversee specific areas.

 

The GPT also includes an Executive Steering Committee that will represent Federations with the three largest Annual Campaigns, Federations of all city sizes, as well as JFNA lay and professional leaders.
