During challenging times, it's especially important to remember the joys that are with us in the ordinary and the extraordinary moments of our lives.


That awareness led us to launch the Best Jewish Moment Project in the fall of 2014. We kicked it off at our 2015 Campaign opening event with special guest actor Josh Malina, who eagerly added his own brief video (scroll below) to the mix.



Each of us has our own story.  But certain themes arise and they reflect exactly what the Jewish Federation is all about - taking care of each other, family, pride in our peoplehood, traditions, love of Israel... Watch and listen and feel the joy!

Here are a few samples of Best Jewish Moments.
