The Annual Super Sunday Phone-a-thon will again reach out to the community to support Jews locally, nationally, and abroad. The event will take place in-person on the Sandler Family Campus at the newly finished Marty Einhorn Pavilion.

“Super Sunday’s success year after year has been due to the community’s involvement,” says Matthew Kramer-Morning, Young Leadership Campaign director. “This event supports our local agencies year-round and positions our community to respond to crises when they arise, whether it is antisemitic flyers being distributed in local neighborhoods or evacuating Jews from war-torn parts of Ukraine.”

The committee is seeking volunteers for the event to make calls to members of the community, which is also a way to check in and engage with friends and neighbors.

“Super Sunday is a success each year because of our community members. It is not only because of the volunteers who take time on their Sundays to make phone calls, but also because of the community members who answer the call and commit to supporting our Annual Campaign. These are not just calls to get your pledge for the coming year; we want to hear from you how YOU are doing,” says Kramer-Morning.

Another way to help is to make an early commitment to the community by visiting To have a gift counted in the Super Sunday total, just write SUPER SUNDAY in the comments section of the donation form.

“This year we also have a new way to give monthly when you visit,” says Kramer-Morning. “Rather than making a one-time payment, we are able to provide the convenience of signing up to give automatically each month. Spreading this out over each month adds up and builds on the donor’s impact each month that they give. Donors can choose to give $5 and up each month, just like a normal subscription, but this is helping us provide essential services to the community through the annual campaign.”

Donations made to the UJFT Annual Campaign are 100% tax deductible to the extent applicable by law (please consult a tax advisor).
