Welcome to the Jewish Federation of Lee & Charlotte Counties
You have achieved so much, yet you choose to do more. You can stand alone,
yet your soul yearns to participate-so you make the connection.
Below is a statement from The Jewish Federations of North America made by Mark Wilf, Chair of the Board of Trustees, and Eric Fingerhut, President & CEO on January 7, 2021. We bring it to you here as representative of the Jewish Federation of Lee and Charlotte Counties’ view.
Following yesterday’s horrifying assault on our nation's democracy, we were gratified that calm was restored quickly and Congress went back to their important work of certifying our election process. We all must return to the important work ahead.
Before us are a series of immense challenges and we cannot fully tackle them unless we come together. Death tolls related to COVID-19 are at alarming levels and we have seen domestic unrest rise to unacceptable proportions. Our social service sector has been overtaxed and under resourced.
As Jews, we know personally and painfully the dangers of unchecked hatred. We also know that with great determination and conviction to our core values, our country can heal and grow stronger. We affirm our belief in the stability of our government, its institutions and the peaceful transition of power. We are committed to devoting our communal energy to working with people of all faiths and creeds to heal and move forward.
