It is through such cooperation, after all, that
Federation and its agencies have coordinated services,
streamlined operations to be more efficient, cost-
effective and accountable, and funded imaginative
programs that will help all our people.

When you get right down to it, that's what Federa-
tion is about: people. Providing people with the
services and programs they want and need. Reaching
out to people and involving them in the Jewish activi-
ties that have meaning for them. Giving people the
opportunity to create something important and to
improve the world we live in.

Over the past year, your Federation has accom-
plished much to be proud of. There were big numbers
a Michigan Miracle Mission that took nearly 1,300 to
Israel, an Independence Day walk and week-long
celebration that energized 10,000 participants, an
Allied Jewish Campaign that raised nearly $27 million,
almost $1 million more than in 1992.

When we
shared the
experience of
being in Israel
and just being
together as an
extended fam-
ily, we opened
up our hearts
in a way we
hadn't done
before.

There was the extraordinary
commitment of hundreds of donors
to complete a new recreation wing
for the Jewish Community Center's
Jimmy Prentis Morris Building,
creating a new center for Jewish life
in a wonderfully vibrant Jewish
neighborhood. And there was the
heart-felt response to Windows, a
Jewish Family Service violence
prevention program that is giving
new hope to abused children and
their families.

The Michigan Miracle Mission taught all of us
something. When we shared the experience of being in
Israel and just being together as an extended family, we
opened up our hearts in a way we hadn't done before.

We found out that there is tremendous joy in being
Jewish. And we found that there can be no greater
satisfaction than in working together to sustain and
celebrate life through our peoplehood.
