F-E-G-S and UJA-Federation: A Model of Collaboration

By Alisa Rubin Kurshan, Roberta Leiner

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), Fall 2010

UJA-Federation of New York and F-E-G-S share an intertwined history with overlapping missions that fuel our mutual efforts to strengthen and reinforce collective responsibility. Together, there is communal action to care for those in need and to weave an interlocking safety net of support for people whose lives are disrupted by a range of challenges, dislocations, and traumas. Building on this joint history, UJA-Federation and F-E-G-S have made extraordinary gains during the past decade in altering the Jewish communal landscape by customizing unique responses for the Jewish community and catalyzing community-building strategies that marry the resources and assets of all Jewish institutions in promoting help, hope, and healing. How has this been achieved?
