The first six months of 2020 have brought about a lot of uncertainty for most Americans. Individuals have been worried about their health and jobs while employers have been concerned about demand for their products and services, as well as the financial well-being of their companies.

“I never really thought about what it meant to be involved in a Jewish community. I just kind of took it for granted,” says Bonnie Ullner, the cochair of the Jewish Federation of Cincinnati’s Israel and Overseas Committee. “I only started getting involved about 10 years ago. I loved being Jewish. I was proud of being Jewish. I raised my children Jewish, but I never really thought about the fact that it takes a lot of work to create a Jewish community. These institutions just don’t exist on their own.”
