The author describes how after World War II, Jewish communities needed many new buildings and services, yet local agencies were financially tapped by routine expenses. Cleveland, Ohio and a few other cities thus experimented with a federated capital campaign, attempting to centralize the fundraising of the Jewish community while preserving the individual integrity of the local agencies. Although this new model of fundraising detracted from the uniqueness of programs that sought to address niche concerns, more money was raised overall, strengthening the unified Jewish community.
