Federation Annual Meeting June 14 to deliver ‘big shift’

The Jewish Federation of Pinellas & Pasco Counties will hold its Annual Meeting next month with a first-time element – a FED Talk, in the style of TED Talks.

The free event, open to all, will be held Tuesday, June 14 at 7 p.m. at the Florida Holocaust Museum, 55 Fifth St. S., in downtown St. Petersburg.

The TED Talk style allows a speaker to present an in-depth and often fast-paced lecture on a singular and unusual topic.

The theme of the Federation’s FED Talk, presented by Federation Executive Director Emile Socash, will be “The Big Shift in Our Community.” Socash will speak on the changes that the community has seen, and offer some potential directions that this shift is taking it as a whole.

Rabbi Ed Rosenthal, executive director of the Hillels of the Florida Suncoast; Elizabeth Gelman, executive director of the Florida Holocaust Museum; and Sandra Braham, CEO of Gulf Coast Jewish Family and Community Services, will speak on what they are seeing in their areas of the Jewish community.

New community leadership will be announced and there will be a presentation of the annual Ludin Young Leadership Award, which remains a secret until the meeting.

“We’re excited to bring this new format to the community, and to talk about the things that really matter: trends, fresh perspectives, predictions, and even the people behind our work.” Socash noted.

All community members are encouraged to attend. RSVPs are not required but are appreciated. A coffee and cookie reception will follow the program. For more information or to indicate attendance, contact Diana Morin at or call (727) 530-3223.
