The theme of this year’s United Jewish Federation of Tidewater’s Super Sunday Community Phone-a-Thon and Campaign Kickoff could not have been more fitting: “Today, Tomorrow, Always.” This was on the minds of almost 60 volunteers who manned the phones at the Sandler Family Campus on Sunday, Sept. 10.

The room was abuzz with energy as volunteers donned their Super Sunday T-shirts excited to call friends, colleagues, and members of the Tidewater Jewish community. Tables were filled with generations of families, old friends and new. The positivity was contagious, as evidenced by a surprising number of increased gifts – an illustration that the entire community is committed to supporting each and ensuring the health of the community. “Today, Tomorrow, Always.”

With volunteers making calls and community members taking them, Super Sunday 2024 raised more than $250,000 from 225 individual gifts in support of the Federation and its beneficiaries at home and around the Jewish world. UJFT extends a major “Thank You” to everyone who was a part of this day and part of supporting Tidewater’s amazing and generous community.
