As chair of Tidewater Jewish Foundation’s board, I am proud to present our 2023 Annual Report, which is inserted in this edition of Jewish News.

Unfathomable events have taken place globally over the past year, with the crisis and war in Israel standing at the forefront. Despite the lack of warning, the strength and resilience of our community were apparent. The strategic planning and financial stewardship of our donors, combined with the success of our engagement activities and programs, positioned us favorably to respond to needs arising from this conflict. Our proactive approach to fund development and allocation has proven vital, enabling us to offer significant support and humanitarian aid where it is most needed.

Along with the remarkable generosity of our donor community, TJF’s board members’ guidance have been essential in steering our strategic decisions towards such positive outcomes. In addition, TJF’s dedicated team of professionals works tirelessly with our donors to facilitate legacy and gift planning. Their expertise and personalized approach ensure that every contribution not only meets today’s immediate needs, but also secures a lasting impact for future generations. Through these combined efforts, we are creating a strong, interconnected Jewish community, both locally and around the world.

Within TJF’s Annual Report, you’ll discover narratives of impact and generosity, of hope, and of the enduring legacy of our actions. These stories illustrate the transformative power of unity and shared commitment to the future of Jewish life and culture.

I invite you to delve into this report, to draw inspiration from our collective achievements, and to envision the future we can build together.
With ongoing community support, we can continue to make a significant impact, ensuring a world where Jewish life, culture, and people are not only safeguarded but flourish.
