The Federation is thrilled to report an extraordinary response rate.We attribute the success of the study to an incredible team of volunteers, under the helm of Jack Finkelstein, and to the superlative cooperation of all the local agencies, organizations and synagogues that helped get the word out to their constituents. And finally, to each and every community member who took the time to complete the survey, we thank you!
Jack is delighted by the community's response to the project. "I can't tell you how gratifying it is to have this volume of response to our community survey," he said. "To try to express to people how important it is to have their input as we plan for the life of our community over the next decade, and then to find that people hear the message and respond accordingly, it's a great feeling. The response to the survey has been overwhelming and it will help us to chart our course effectively into the future."
The study, which received finanicial support from Jewish Senior Life, asked residents of the Greater Rochester Jewish community a wide array of questions assessing their needs and interests with regard to family support, Jewish observation, senior services, and many other issues.
