Last Week, the Teen Leadership Fellowship had the amazing opportunity to cook with Zach and JB from The Bloom & Rose in their kitchen! We made Atayef, a middle-eastern pancake stuffed with nuts and fried for a unique Hanukkah treat. We also got to discuss everyone’s unique family history and how that impacts their traditional holiday food and who we are as leaders.

Thanks to our amazing Teen Fellows for a great session, we can’t wait to see you all again in January!

10/28/2021

Yesterday, your Buffalo Jewish Federation Team spent the afternoon at Greg's U-Pick Farm to Rest, Rebalance, and Release. Just like the natural world, we need to take intentional time for ourselves. This year is a shmita or sabbatical year, which began at Rosh Hashanah. The shmita year is the 7th year in a 7-year cycle in which we are called to let the land (in Israel) go fallow and forgive debts. Today, many use the year as an opportunity to: reflect on their impact on the natural world, reset, and rebalance their lives. We enjoyed learning more about each other, feasting on an incredible vegetarian farm to table lunch (catered by Lori Sobolewski Morrison) and some old fashioned farm fun!

Early this morning over 20 women, professionals from across Jewish Buffalo, came together for the first part of KOLOT Pro, the Federation’s 2021 women’s leadership retreat. We rekindled friendships, built new relationships, and started the important work of exploring what it means to bring our authentic voices to leadership.

**KOLOT Pro: Bringing our authentic Voices to Leadership, is a two-day leadership retreat for women who work full-time for an agency, institution, or congregation of Jewish Buffalo, and will take place on October 18 & 19, 2021.

As a thank you to all of our participants in Buffalo Jewish Teen Initiative experiences this past year, our teens are receiving a gift bag with a book (Every Day, Holy Day by Alan Morinis for underclassman, Lessons in Leadership by Rabbi Jonathan Sacks for upperclassman), a pennant for each of the experiences they completed, and a certificate for teens that served as leaders on various committees throughout the year.

Even though this past year was unlike any other, we are so grateful for our amazing teens who continued to learn, engage, and lead JTI programs!!

Help spread the word. For the 11th year, Buffalo Psychiatric Center will be hosting the annual Survivors of Su***de Loss Day program on November 17, the Saturday before Thanksgiving. This program is sponsored by the American Foundation for Su***de Prevention, and we know from past experience that this program can help those who have lost loved ones to su***de find comfort and understanding as they move forward in dealing with their grief. We will gather in the Butler Rehabilitation Center for the free program which runs from 1-3 p.m. after the registration period from noon to 1 p.m. Lunch is provided. We encourage advance registration to assist us in planning, but walk-ins are always welcome. Call 816-2014 or email [email protected]. Please share this information.
I find it very sad and disturbing that here in Buffalo we do not have have a community notification system (i.e. someone that takes the lead), like Syracuse does where all law enforcement agencies, synagogues are notified immediately during such as the horrific event that happened in Pittsburgh. I personally learned of the incident long before it hit the news wires due the security protocols that exist in Syracuse. Please join me in developing such a system here! We needed it yesterday.
