Last week I attended a convention of all the Federations of North America, better known as the GA or General Assembly. This annual gathering not only attracts volunteers and professionals from Federations but many organizations, other non-profits and businesses from as far away as Israel, Europe and other points around the globe, who want to do work with the Federation system.

Amazing, community building, complicated....

These were just some of the words used to describe the experience of the 17 participants on the recent Jewish Federation of Greater Kansas City Community Mission to Israel. Over the course of 10 days last month, we traversed the country—south to north—by bus, jeep, ATV, boat, bike and on foot.

Last time I shared with you some institutional changes taking place that impact our staff and programs. More is happening as I write this, but there is time to talk about it in future blogs. Today, I want to focus your thinking and my thoughts on the road ahead.

This is a time of reflection as we move toward the holiest day of the year for the Jewish community. It is a time for family and friends and thinking about what was and what will be in the new year.

This week we hosted Ari Shavit, Israeli author of the bestselling book, My Promised Land, at our Federation Annual Meeting. Mr. Shavit started his remarks with thoughts about what happened here in April at our Campus.
