Why I Volunteer: Jay Price
For the Federation’s new Why I Volunteer series, a volunteer in Cincinnati’s Jewish community is asked for a one-sentence answer to the question: “Why do you do this work, why do you volunteer?”
“I really feel if Jews don’t take care of each other then no one else will.”

Insights from JPAN’s “Landscape of Philanthropy”
March 7—Experts from across the Jewish Federation of Cincinnati shared insights at a breakfast and conversation on the “Landscape of Philanthropy,” organized by the Jewish Professional Advisors Network (JPAN), and held at the Mayerson JCC.

The chair of JPAN, Jody Brant, introduced the three speakers: the Jewish Federation’s Chief Development Officer, Danielle Minson; Jay Price, the Federation’s Vice President of Development; and John Silverman, the Federation’s Vice President of Planning & Allocations. A delicious spread, with lox, was served. Below are highlights from each talk:

“I feel it’s a moral responsibility to give—my mother always felt that you gave until it hurt. I hope to pass on to my children the idea of giving. You need to help and you need to keep it going.”
Judith was born and raised in Cincinnati to caring, involved parents who set an example of giving. After living in several other cities, Judith returned to Cincinnati. She believes that it is a responsibility and moral obligation to help others and provide for the next generation.
