All your questions for Naomi Adler, Esq., answered! This week’s question:

Happy 2018! Do you have a New Year’s resolution?

I tend to make my personal resolutions during the High Holidays, but I do have a 2018 resolution for the Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia.

In 2018, Israel turns 70 years old — a significant milestone for both the Israeli and Jewish communities across the world. At the Jewish Federation, we’re marking the occasion with a year of programming called Israel70: a full calendar of festivities, speakers, performers, learning opportunities and discussions.

My resolution is to ensure that all of our programming during this year will demonstrate our communities’ love, respect and deep ties with Israel, while also paying tribute to the diversity of the Israeli population, and exploring the multiplicity of viewpoints involved. In doing so, I resolve that we will create a space for each of us to explore, celebrate and share our unique relationship with Israel.

Shabbat Shalom,
