WESTERN MASS. – Super Sunday, the largest fundraising event of the Jewish Federation of Western Massachusetts was a big success this year, says Meredith Dragon, executive director of the Federation. This year Super Sunday was held on Sunday, Feb. 3 in both Springfield, at the Springfield JCC, and Northampton at Lander-Grinspoon Academy, with follow-up sessions in Springfield and UMass Amherst. Jeremy and Yana Powers of Longmeadow were the co-chairs and Viola, Chrabascz. Reynolds & Co. was the gold sponsor.
Super Sunday raised funds for the 2013 Federation Annual Campaign, which helps feeds the hungry; supports people in crisis; ensures services for seniors, people with special needs, and the unemployed; makes Jewish education more affordable; provides Birthright trips to Israel; and much more.
The Federation funds and supports a community-wide network of organizations that care for people in need in Western Massachusetts, in Israel, and in 70 countries around the world, and nurtures and sustains the Jewish community today and for future generations.
The Federation’s local beneficiary agencies include: Congregation Beit Ahavah, Congregation B’nai Israel, Hebrew High School of New England, Heritage Academy, the Jewish Community of Amherst, Jewish Family Service, Lander~
