[Newsletters] November 9 – Time to Write a Check to Federation

In This Email Time to Write a Check to Federation Ride for 1, 2, or 3-Week Segments of the 2012 Cross-USA Ride 2012 California Ride & Retreat: Sonoma County to San Francisco Local Events and Features from our Partners and Friends   Time to Write a Check to Federation   By Nigel Savage, Executive Director, Hazon Dear All, The period from the end of the Jewish holidays (i.e. now) till the end of December (the end of the tax year) is peak season for non-profits raising money. That’s no less true for Hazon than anyone else: we’re doing important work on a relatively shoe-string budget, and we need your help. Despite that, this email isn’t a request to write us a check: it’s a request that you write one to your local Jewish Federation. That’s especially true if either A. you’ve never written a check to Federation before or B. it’s a few years since you last did so and you got out of the habit. In this email, I want to say why I think this is important, and I especially want to address critiques that are made of the system in relation both to Israel and to issues of diversity, democracy, and […]

In This Email Reading Noah in 2011 – Where Do Our Values Really Come From? Learn More About the California Ride and Retreat Grab Life by the Handlebars! 2012 Hazon Cross USA Ride The Hazon Food Guide and Food Audit Toolkit Local Events and Features from our Partners and Friends   Reading Noah in 2011 – Where Do Our Values Really Come From? By Nigel Savage, Executive Director, Hazon Dear All, I’m back from my mini-sabbatical. My time away included riots in England, the European debt crisis, the Occupy movement, the Palestinian application for statehood, the death of Gaddhafi, the release of Gilad Shalit, and, most recently, Manchester United’s catastrophic home defeat to Manchester City.  In the Jewish world, JDub, The Curriculum Initiative, and Milestones all announced their closure, at least in their current form. This is an unsettling time. Over the coming weeks I’m going to use these emails to reflect on some of what I’ve been thinking about, as we look back on Hazon’s first dozen years and look forward to the future. For now I want to think about this coming week’s parsha to reflect very straightforwardly (i.e. unromantically and honestly) on how we read the Torah itself. This […]
