2017 proved to be a super year for super heroes in our community as a total of 262 people stepped up, answering the call on Super Sunday, Feb. 5th and donating $174,820 to the Federation’s annual campaign. The funds collected that morning will eventually dispersed to local synagogues and agencies throughout Jacksonville as well as going overseas to help displaced and underprivileged Jews throughout the world.
Aside from those gave of their hard earned dollars, others donated their time that Sunday as more than 65 people from the community came to the JCA to make calls to their peers. The groups with the most volunteers were the Torah Academy of Jacksonville, which took home a $500 cash prize for their efforts, while the Martin J. Gottlieb Day School was awarded $250 for coming in second place.
The many volunteers were treated to a delicious breakfast courtesy of Whole Foods Market during their calls and a special pump up video featuring members of the Jacksonville Jewish community before.
