Federation Welcomes David Hazony to 2024 Annual Meeting

By Jessica Goldfarb, JFGC Communications Specialist

The Jewish Federation of Greater Charlotte (JFGC) will hold its annual meeting on Monday, May 20, at 7 p.m. in the Sam Lerner Center for Cultural Arts at Shalom Park. Federation is delighted to welcome David Hazony as the guest speaker for this year’s event. Hazony is an esteemed author, editor, and director and Steinhardt Senior Fellow at the Z3 Institute for Jewish Priorities, which fosters dialogue and connection between Israeli and American Jews. With over three decades of experience, he has contributed significantly to essays and books on Judaism, Zionism, and peoplehood.

Hazony’s book, “Jewish Priorities: Sixty-Five Proposals for the Future of Our People,” compiles more than sixty essays from a diverse array of voices within the Jewish community, ranging from secularists to ultra-Orthodox, and from young influencers to veteran writers. Each essay offers a unique perspective on Jewish life, collectively providing unexpected insights into modern Judaism. Following the meeting, attendees will have the opportunity to purchase David’s book and have their copies signed.

This year’s gathering will honor outgoing president Risa Miller, whose dedication and tireless efforts have profoundly impacted both Federation and the greater Charlotte Jewish community. Additionally, we look forward to welcoming incoming president Amy Vitner as she begins her term, bringing fresh perspectives and initiatives to the forefront.

The annual meeting serves as a platform to discuss upcoming JFGC programming and to elect our 2024-2025 slate of officers and trustees. Community members 18 years and older who contribute at least $36 to Federation’s 2024 Annual Campaign are eligible to vote. We invite you to join us for this special evening.
