On Monday, September 8, the Combined Jewish Appeal (CJA) launched their annual campaign. Over 90 community volunteers came to campus and learned to canvass with confidence. This interactive session included seasoned veterans and those new to the game. It was incredible to see multi-generational families getting involved, along with many young adults. Co-Chairs Elana Schultz & Paula Parks did an outstanding job putting the training together. Special acknowledgement to the actors Bryan Klein, Baillie Chisick, Rena Elbaze and Adam Bronstone.
The Canvasser Kickoff continued at the Zoo's Journey to Churchill Exhibit. While there were no official polar bear sightings, everyone was thoroughly entertained by New York City comedian Dan Ahdoot. Campaign Chair Bob Silver captivated the crowd with his inspiration words. Jennifer Johnson shared her experience of the CJA allowing her the opportunity to connect with Israel.
With an ambitious goal of $5.9 million, the 2014/15 CJA Campaign is sure to be a record-breaking year!
