Fifty years is a long time, and thanks to you, United Jewish Federation is stronger than ever.
To commemorate this community milestone, Stamford, New Canaan and Darien residents are being asked to contribute their experiences, memories, or favorite moments of Federation. Responses will be compiled as part of a limited testimonial series titled “50(ish) Voices” which will be featured on United Jewish Federation’s website, social media channels, and monthly community newsletter.
You can take part in “50(ish) Voices” by completing a brief online Q&A where you can select from a suggested list of questions. Every effort will be made to include submissions. UJF hopes to share stories from past and present volunteers, community leaders, multi-generation families, and others in our diverse and wonderful community. In addition to 50(ish) Voices being featured on the UJF website, social media, and community newsletter, these stories will be archived at the Jewish Historical Society of Fairfield County for future generations to learn from.
“We are delighted to chair this inspiring project. How better to commemorate this anniversary than with stories and memories from YOU, the UJF community. We look forward to gathering your responses and publishing them for all to enjoy,” said Chairs Barbara Aronica and Peter Poser.
Please help spread the word by sharing the online Q&A with everyone who might have their own story or memory to share. These stories provide the opportunity to recognize, hear, and learn from the wide-reaching voices in the community as UJF looks back, and ahead, to another 50 years of Federation.
