Securing Our Future: Jewish Federation 2020 Annual Meeting

Jewish Federation of Greater Kansas City invites the Jewish community to its 2020 Annual Meeting. The event, which is free of charge, will highlight Jewish Federation’s accomplishments over the past year and its plans for the organization in the coming year.

This year’s program, which is co-chaired by Steve and Lisa Ruben, will feature Michael Masters, the National Director of the Secure Community Network (SCN). SCN is the national homeland security initiative of the Jewish Federations of North America and the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations.

“We’re very excited to have Michael speak, as funding our community security has become one of Jewish Federation’s top priorities,” said Dr. Helene Lotman, Federation President and CEO. “He’ll be able to provide an insider’s perspective on how critical it is for Jewish communities to support security initiatives.”

The annual meeting will also honor several community award winners, including:

  • Morgan Fasbinder, this year’s Grinspoon Educator of the Year Award winner, for excellence in teaching Hebrew and Jewish Studies at HBHA,
  • KU Chabad’s JewishU and JCRB | AJC’s Unity Seder, the Community Programs of The Year.
