The Allied Jewish Federation of Colorado has embarked on “reimagining” itself for the future – reflecting the Denver community’s feedback that a change is needed, but with no consensus on what the change should be! In 2010, a strategic planning process began to consider a wide variety of strategies and business models for Federation. Ten scenarios were whittled down to one recommendation with five areas of focus:
1) Empowering Jewish philanthropy
2) Engaging the next generation in being Jewish
3) Serving the most vulnerable
4) Supporting and advocating on behalf of Israel
5) Mobilizing the community in times of crisis
Task force transition teams have begun the work to make recommendations as to what the new organization might look like.
Doug Seserman, Allied Jewish Federation President and CEO, will speak to B’nai B’rith on a) why change? b) what the vision is for supporting the local Jewish community, and c) the current work and timelines of the transition teams. Q&A will follow.> Learn more on Facebook
Please RSVP by Monday, February 25th to firstname.lastname@example.org.

For the B’nai B’rith Young Professional Network (BBYPN), February was Gift of Life month. BBYPN groups across the country held “Mitzvah Hour” events in cooperation with the Gift of Life Bone Marrow Foundation. Events were held in Denver, New York, Chicago and Washington, D.C., with the goal of getting attendees to register as potential donors while they meet members of their local networks and learn about programs in their communities.
“Mitzvah Hours” are happy hours with a social action component. The network has been hosting “Mitzvah Hours” in several cities for causes such as the B’nai B’rith Cuban Jewish Relief Project and local food pantries. For these events BBYPN Denver, New York and Washington, D.C., all gathered at local bars, while BBYPN Chicago enjoyed “Mitzvah Dinner” at a popular deli.
Becoming a potential marrow donor is as easy as taking a swab of the inside of your mouth. Not only did nearly 100 people turn out across the country to learn about B’nai B’rith and Gift of Life, but 30 people were swabbed as potential donors!
“We were thrilled to have the opportunity to partner with the B’nai B’rith Young Professionals throughout the month of February. Helping Gift of Life Bone Marrow Foundation raise awareness is a perfect example of BBI’s commitment to enhancing its programs with educational and meaningful experiences,” said Marti Freund, senior development associate for Gift of Life and B’nai B’rith’s contact for the partnership. “We are thankful to everyone who participated in the bone marrow recruitment drives and took the time to learn more about our mission to save lives.”
Gift of Life is an organization that maintains a public registry for bone marrow, blood stem cell and umbilical cord donors. Through its life-saving work, Gift of Life is a world leader in facilitating transplants for children and adults suffering from many life-threatening diseases, such as leukemia and lymphoma.
