“Federation unites us, strengthens us, and helps us better serve our people.”
Throughout its history, Federation has been there to support Congregation B’nai Amoona and help our community with projects we never could have completed on our own.
Every day I see the impact that Federation has on our synagogue. Through their collaboration and financial support, area congregations can build on their own strengths and better serve their people through services like the insurance pool and Congregational Chesed Fund. This invaluable partnership unites us all, making us a stronger St. Louis community.
At Congregation B’nai Amoona, we pride ourselves on being inclusive and are always looking for ways to ensure accessibility for all. Because Federation shares that vision, they helped us install automatic doors to our synagogue and a ramp to our bema so people of all abilities can easily join us. We also met with an inclusion specialist funded by Federation to talk through our plans for the synagogue and school. I am proud to be part of such a dynamic community that has a resource like Federation.
Giving to Federation means supporting our community’s infrastructure and all that it provides to St. Louis. Your gift ensures that programs, services and organizations that serve our Jewish community will be around today, tomorrow and for generations to come.
