Review for Jewish Federation of Delaware Inc, Wilmington, DE, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have volunteered in various capacities for Jewish Federation of DE for several years and am a Board member. I am so very impressed by this organization and it's incredibly great staff.
We are the luckiest Federation in NA to have Seth Katzen as our CEO. He is so smart, so capable, so hardworking and so successful, and always a mensch!
Wendy Berger, our Senior VP of Financial Resource Development is extraordinarily hard-working and tireless in her fund-raising and event planning efforts.
The entire staff is highly competent and hardworking, while still maintaining a positive and fun environment which is always welcoming and warm.
My husband and I are major donors because we know what our money will be used for and how much good it will do for so many.
The vital programming and funds help change the lives of so many of our fellow Jews and non-Jews, locally and all over the world.
I feel immensely proud of the fact that JFD's main mission, Tikun Olam, Repairing the World,
is so effectively carried out by this fabulous organization.

Rating: 5 stars  

The longer I am affiliated with Jewish Federation of Delaware, the more I learn about how far-reaching and effective it is as an organization. I could not be more proud or more impressed with the scope and magnitude of its work to benefit those in need! It has never been better!

The CEO Seth Katzen and Sr. VP Wendy Berger and President Bill Wagner never stop working to make JFD the top notch organization that it is. We are so very fortunate to have them and the entire extraordinary staff!
It's very enjoyable to work with them all as well as with the Board of Directors.

Rating: 5 stars  

I am co-chair of the Annual Campaign along with Barb Blumberg. I can't say enough about Jewish Federation of DE in terms of both the organization itself and how much great work that it does to support Jews through its vital programs. The CEO is so capable, and so effective, besides being a mensch. Wendy Berger in Development could not be more hardworking, dedicated and resourceful, besides being a mensch too. The staff is all great; upbeat and fun to engage. All in all I'm very very proud to spend time volunteering to support the excellent work that JFD does locally and all over the world.

As the Annual Campaign co-chair, along with Barb Blumberg, I could not feel more proud than I do to feel a part of this extraordinary agency and its vital programs.
Jewish Federation of DE, through the expert leadership of CEO Seth Katzen and DOD Wendy Berger, and the amazing staff, is so very effective at supporting and improving the lives of countless of our fellow Jews here in DE, in Israel, and in over 65 countries abroad.
Which as we all know, is more important than ever before.
I speak for myself and for Barb when I say that I could not be more impressed by nor more appreciative of the quality of Tikun Olam that JFD provides both locally and globally.

Rating: 5 stars  

My husband Henry and I feel so very fortunate to have Seth Katzen as CEO of Jewish Federation of DE, and Wendy Berger as Director of Development.
Seth constantly strives to make JFD as excellent in its programming as it can be, and it has never been a more powerful organization than it is now because of Seth. He also goes out of his way to help individuals in the community whenever he can, going over above and beyond the scope of his responsibilities. I have personally benefited from this.
Wendy Berger works tirelessly at fundraising to support the excellent programs that JFD administers.
I have nicknamed them Superman and Wonder Woman.
The entire staff at JFD is superb, helpful and responsive.
JFD has never been better than it is now.

JFD is a well organized and efficiently run organization due to it's very competent staff members. Just some of my experiences include a Mission trip to Israel in 2000,the GA I attended in Nashville, the many mitzvah days I've shared in, and the phone-a-thons for Super Sunday. JFD is an organization that very capably serves the needs of its umbrella agencies, as well as the needs of Israel.

The GA to Nashville.
