A very special thanks our Campaign Closing speakers! Kyla Epstein Schneider, Jordan Berkowitz, Nicolle Simonovic, and Larry Mack shared their personal, powerful stories of why they give and why they volunteer.
Thank you Dan Zelman, 2015 & 2016 General Campaign Chair, for inspiring us to reach new heights!
My name is Jordan Berkowitz. I am a campaigner. I am also a parent. I notice the police presence at my children’s Jewish day schools during drop off.
My name is Nicolle Simonovic. I go to John Carroll University and I am one of the co-chairs of the college campaign.
Shalom! My name is Kyla Epstein Schneider. I volunteer with the Federation because I believe we are all in this together. And, through Federation, we can plan for our community’s future. We can be prepared.
Hello, my name is Larry Mack. I’ve been a campaigner for a long time. It’s really important to me. Sometimes there are no words for how it makes me feel – to know that I can help.
