I am enormously grateful to Seth Katzen, the talented team of staff and volunteers at Federation, and to the Federation Community for their important work and dedication. As a relative newcomer, I was so appreciative of the warm and gracious welcome I received upon moving to Delaware. Federation provides the community with much-needed resources and incredible learning opportunities.

As Past President of Congregation Beth Sholom in Dover, Delaware, the Jewish Federation of Delaware has been a tremendous help to our congregation in educating our population in central Delaware.

We are the only Conservative Synagogue within 40 miles of the metropolis of Wilmington.

Thanks you, Federation.
