Federation clarifies its position on ‘Fete’

Dear Editor:

The Jewish Federation of Greater New Orleans is pleased to announce that it’s new gala event “Fete de Federation” to be held this Thursday September 22 is sold out.

This gala event is new to the Jewish calendar and combines two historically held separate events, namely Campaign Celebration and the Annual Meeting.

The event takes place in accordance with our Bylaws and the Board of Trustees.

The Fete de Federation will open with a short election portion followed by a gala dinner, dancing and awards.

Anyone wishing to attend just the election portion may do so at no cost. All others (including the media) wishing to participate also in the rest of the evening will be expected to

purchase an event ticket as is the practice at most community events.  We have offered to send photos of the event to Jewish media that are unable to be present.

We look forward to a wonderful evening and we will evaluate its success in the course of the year to decide whether to continue this new event format in the future.

Dr Eddie Soll
President

Michael J. Weil
Executive Director
