Community Conversations

The Community Planning Committee of the Jewish Federation of Winnipeg is pleased to announce the launch of a new broad based community planning process.


The first step is to embark on a broad based consultation process to hear the voices of community members. These are prelude to action planning for the long term well-being of the Winnipeg Jewish community.


The results of this process will guide community efforts for the next several years, and everyone has a stake in the future of the Jewish community.


The breadth of this process will rival the Federation’s Strategic Review process completed in 2009 that engaged more than 250 people and two dozen organizations in thinking about the future of the Jewish community of Winnipeg. The actions resulting from the Strategic Review were far reaching as the Planning Committee responded to the expressed needs of the community, and will again result in action planning in a variety of areas that involve the delivery partners and volunteer leadership.
