National Jewish umbrella gets another new name



The umbrella organizations for North American Jewish federations is still in search of itself. Across the United States, local federations are re-envisioning their methods and their missions. (See: Los Angeles.) And the United Jewish Communities, which formed a decade ago when the United Jewish Appeal, Council of Jewish Federations and United Israel Appeal merged, is looking to keep up with the re-branding.

The organization, which like many other nonprofits has fallen on hard times, has given itself a more recognizable name: The Jewish Federations of North America.

Makes sense.

The official word from The Fundermentalist.
