Message from Jewish Federation

Jewish Federation is committed to providing leadership and service excellence to our partners, donors, staff, volunteers, and community members. In order to deliver on that promise, we are making some temporary changes to how we operate. These changes will help us maintain a healthy workplace for our staff and for our community.


Most staff are working remotely and will be available by email. Click here for staff emails. Some staff who are working remotely will provide their cell numbers on their office voicemail greetings. The JCC will be closed through March 30th. You will not be able to visit us during that time, but we look forward to hearing from you by email or phone.

 

A few key staff will remain in the office to ensure we can continue to support our partners and complete critical, time-sensitive work on behalf of the community. This includes ensuring partner organizations can receive the funds they rely upon from the Federation Annual Campaign.

 

Our commitment to you remains that we will be here for the community throughout the COVID-19 situation. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us at info@jewishvancouver.com  and we will get you answers as soon as we can.

Find out more in our recent Shabbat Messages. Stay up to date: Subscribe to our Shabbat Message and other Community Updates here. You can also find us on FacebookTwitter, and Instagram.

 

Note that all Jewish Federation events are canceled through the end of March. This includes Axis, PJ Library and Connect Me In.

 

We are all doing our part to flatten the curve, and we know that many of you are eager to help. We expect to provide additional information about that in the coming days. In the meantime, thank you for your understanding as we and other community organizations do our best to adjust to the changing environment in which we find ourselves.
