As I sit at my desk for the second week since being hired, still 2 ½ weeks before my official first day at the Jewish Federation of Greater Seattle, I am marveling at how energetic and caring the Jewish community here is.

The Jewish Federation of Greater Seattle was honored to receive a $1,500 gift July 22 from Schwartz Brothers Restaurants, a gift made possible by Q13 Sports Director Aaron Levine, who selected the Federation as his charity of choice in the Celebrity Grilling Series at Daniel's Broiler-Lake Union. Levine was the Celebrity Griller on June 27.
