The world gave us Covid. You gave us Kavod.
An end of year message from Alain Hasson, JCA CEO
As we come to the end of a tumultuous year, I want to thank you on behalf of the entire JCA team and our member organisations for your incredible support of our local Jewish community
In a year unlike any other, our local Jewish community rallied to provide assistance and care to those most in need.
Our community organisations transformed their services and quickly established digital and online channels.
Many members of the community, who were able to, increased their giving. And many more volunteered to help friends, families and neighbours.
Through our member organisations, we have experienced first-hand the financial impact the pandemic has had, so we are extremely appreciative of every contribution we received towards JCA’s 2020 Campaign, no matter the amount.
By partnering with us for JCA’s 2020 Campaign and by giving in other ways to help those in need, you demonstrated just how vibrant and connected we are. And, how fortunate we all are to be part of our local Jewish community.
We do not expect that the world will magically change at the stroke of midnight on New Year’s Eve, but we do know for certain that our community has the resilience, courage and compassion to face any challenges ahead – together.
This is thanks to you, and all those before us, who created the remarkable community we live in.
This is certainly something worth celebrating!
I wish you and your family the very best wishes for a healthy, happy and prosperous 2021.
With warmest regards,
Alain Hasson, JCA CEO
