If there is one lesson to be learned in a world pandemic, it’s how connected we are and how vulnerable we are without the strength of our families, the reach of our networks and the support of community. In our public spaces - and even in our own homes – Covid has put to the test nearly every decision: how we gather in safety, how we meet and work productively, how we care for those we love, how we celebrate together, how we return to the activities that nourish and sustain body and mind, how we redefine what it means to build community.
“We’re at a pivotal moment,” says Brian D. Siegel, CEO of the Jewish Community Center of Metropolitan Detroit. “The JCC had set a path to fundamentally change the nature of its business model and COVID-19 has served to accelerate that paradigm shift. We have been following the clear steps of a strategic plan that our Board adopted four years ago and I can say with pride that we’re finally in a place where we’re excited to tell our story.”
