The Jewish Federation of Fort Wayne represents the Jewish community interests in NE Indiana and NW Ohio. We provie educational and cultural programs, seek to fight racism, and provide funds to help Jews and other people in peril through our philanthropic fund drive efforts. We are your neighbors and co-workers.
As the New Year approaches we all have the opportunity to reflect upon our personal actions and consider the impact we have on others.
Here at the Jewish Federation of Fort Wayne we are especially grateful to our many volunteers, donors and friends whose actions build, strengthen and care for our Jewish community across the Fort Wayne area and around the world every day.
On behalf of the Staff and Board of Directors, I wish you a sweet New Year, filled with peace, health and prosperity!

Jewish Federations can be found in nearly every city in North America, and our leaders are among the most committed philanthropists in their communities. In just three generations, Jewish Federations across North America forged one of the top 10 philanthropic networks on the continent, helped rescue millions of Jewish refugees from across the globe, helped to build the State of Israel, and continue to touch more Jewish lives than any system in the world.
That is why we feel it is so important to speak out on today’s agreement with Iran.
We are hopeful that diplomatic efforts will prevent Iran from developing nuclear weapons, and we appreciate the hard work President Obama, Secretary of State Kerry, and Under Secretary of State Sherman have put into crafting this agreement.
At the same time, we are concerned. Iran’s support for Hezbollah and Hamas, its human rights violations and its aggressive threats toward neighboring countries—including Israel—make the specter of a nuclear-armed Iran untenable.
President Barack Obama and his administration have repeatedly said that any deal with Iran must shut down Iran's uranium enrichment pathway to a weapon, cut off all four of Iran's potential pathways to a bomb, and track Iran's nuclear activities with unprecedented transparency and robust inspections throughout its nuclear supply chain. We agree.
We urge Congress to give this accord its utmost scrutiny.
At the inspiring Campaign Opener on November 3, 2014, we asked those in attendance to make your 2014-2015 pledge to the Jewish Federation of Fort Wayne, and if at all possible, to increase your gift over your last year’s pledge. For those not at the Opener, cards were sent out with a letter and a return envelope asking that you fill out your pledge cards, be generous, and return them. We are asking one more time, please return your cards…your community needs your commitment today for tomorrow, not tomorrow for today! If you have already made your gift, then thank you. If not, then allow the words of Hertzl himself to serve as a reminder – “Words and Actions are not so far apart as one might think”. This is the time to consider how you can make a difference in the lives of Jews both locally and around the world.
