Shabbat Message for May 23

May 23, 2014 | Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Detroit

Dear WP Supporters,

Yesterday was my last day as Women’s Philanthropy President so this will be my last Shabbat message to you. It was a true honor to be given the opportunity to serve in this capacity. The work we do at Women’s Philanthropy and at Federation as a whole is meaningful and rewarding. Doing Good, Feels Good. I hope you have enjoyed receiving these weekly Shabbat messages and it has helped to familiarize you with our incredible work. I have full confidence in the skills and style of Roz Blanck as she steps into the role of President and I look forward to hearing about her creative initiatives. Leah Trosch will be an exceptional Campaign Chair with her tremendous understanding of Jewish concepts and traditions. But the greatest appreciation goes to the WP team of staff led by Jennifer Levine. Their passion, commitment and heart is the true engine of success on the 2nd floor of the Max M. Fisher Federation Building. Of course, I plan to stay well connected to WP and Federation and look forward to seeing many of you at future WP events.

Wishing you and your loved ones a Wonderful Shabbat Shalom,
