The Jewish Federation of Southern New Jersey (JFEDSNJ), a non-profit organization that serves the Jewish and non-Jewish community with programming and resources for children, teens, older adults, and individuals with special needs, is celebrating its 100th anniversary with multiple events: the inaugural Love Impact Awards on Thursday, June 9 at 6:30 p.m. and FedFest100 on Sunday, June 12 at noon at the Katz JCC on Springdale Road, Cherry Hill.

“Being around for one hundred years is not only a testament to the exceptional commitment of our volunteers, donors, staff members, and program participants, but also to our important impact on the greater South Jersey community and even around the world,” said Jewish Federation CEO Jennifer Dubrow Weiss.

The Love Impact Awards were named in memory of Don Love, an active Federation volunteer who passed away in 2020, to recognize outstanding volunteers who follow in his footsteps. This year’s award recipients, nominated by the community, include Zev Rose, Brad Molotsky, Richard Goldstein, Alison Bell Keim, Miriam Feldman, and Evan Zweben, who are being recognized for the impact they make in their volunteer work, following in Don’s legacy. 

FedFest100, a free outdoor festival at the Katz JCC, will include a live music performance from Jewish a cappella vocal group Six13, EBE Entertainment, dancers from ZZ Dance, klezmer style music from Dan Blacksberg’s Freilachs Music, Israeli dancing, food vendors, local crafters, children’s activities, and other activities for people of all ages.
