The Jewish Federation of Greater Los Angeles is kicking of its 100-year birthday celebration with a 1/11/11 buy-1-get-1-free offer at Southern California Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf locations. A link at the Federation website will get you a coupon for a free small beverage when you buy another from 1-4 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 11.
The promotional event, called “Fuel for the Next 100 Years,” kicks off a year of centennial celebrations, including a 1,000-person mission to Israel in October, four volunteer social service days to impact sites around the city, large public events, and the seeding of a $100 million community endowment.
Today also marks the launch of the Next Big Jewish Idea, an online contest looking for initiatives that will have a broad and lasting impact on the Los Angeles Jewish Community. After a combination of public voting and judging by a panel, Federation will choose one idea to fund with $100,000, office space and support services to turn the idea into reality. Individuals and organizations can submit ideas at TheNextBigJewishIdea.com.
