Federation Fridays to cover all bases

This September, the Jewish Federation of Pinellas & Pasco Counties will kick off its latest community engagement effort: Federation Fridays.

Each Friday morning the Federation will host a guest presenter – sometimes via video – on inspiring, interesting and exciting topics. The free presentations, which are open to everyone in the community, will be held in the Federation’s newly appointed Community Room from 10 a.m. to noon. The Federation office is located at 13191 Starkey Road, Suite 8, Largo.

“A variety of topics are sure to pique your interest in Jewish culture,” says Maxine Kaufman, Federation’s director of Arts, Culture & Education. “We’ve tried to cover a broad range of topics and subject matter.”

Along with local community members offering information on topics ranging from food to dance, there will be a monthly Jewflick, a Ted Talk-style Jewish-interest video from experts, authors and entertainers.

Light refreshments will be served. Although there is no charge to attend, RSVPs are requested to Lucé Piccin at the Jewish Federation at (727) 530-3223 or For more information contact Kaufman at (727) 333-3106 or
