 D'Var Torah

Lee I. Sherman 

Jerusalem is truly unique. This morning I awoke to the alternate sounds of church bells and the Muslim call to prayer, and a view of the walls of the Old City and David's Citadel. The city is inspiring and challenging, as evidenced in the political conversation and the personal spiritual reflection. Last night, I had dinner with a small group of friends, including Avi Melamisrael-6.22.12ed, an expert on Israel's security and its relations with its Arabic-speaking neighbors. (See the attached article for Avi's latest thoughts.) As we sat watching the last light of day turn to darkness over the Old City and beyond the Judean Hills down to the Dead Sea, we talked about the political situation in the Middle East, and particularly the governmental transitions occurring in places like Egypt, Tunisia, and Syria, and the effects on Israel.


Transitions in governments of nations are nothing new. In this week's Haftorah, taken from the Book of Samuel, we read about the transition of Israel from a theocracy ruled by the priests and judges to a monarchy and the rule of Saul. The people had clamored for a king, and although opposed, Samuel followed God's instruction and anointed Saul. One may debate whether this governmental transition was better or worse for the nation of Israel, but clearly the change had a dramatic effect on the growth and positioning of the country.


I worry about the governmental shifts that may or may not be happening in places like Egypt, Syria, and Iran, both for the people of those nations as well as for Israel's security. Sitting here in the literal middle of this region, it is impossible not to be aware and concerned. I don't know of any modern day prophets like Samuel, but if they are out there, I assume they too are concerned.


Shabbat Shalom from Jerusalem.

Every week I am responsible for collating the AJFCA e-newsletter. I look forward to sifting through numerous websites, newsletters, emails, blogs and social media platforms as I determine which articles to include in the Friday bulletin. Lately I have been running into a good, but cumbersome problem. There is an abundance of worthy information made available each week by copious institutes that I find myself with a considerable and sometimes overwhelming amount of information. My goal is to represent the breadth of our member agencies' labor in each newsletter by selecting useful pieces that are geared toward advocacy, boards, disabilities, fundraising, human resources, Judaism, Holocaust survivors, seniors, social media, technology and volunteerism, to name a few.

Peoplehood and Fragmentation

Peoplehood and Fragmentation,June 17, 2012, eJP, by Erica Brown 
[This essay is from The Peoplehood Papers, volume 8 - Nurturing Jewish Peoplehood in the 21st Century - What Should We Do Differently? - published by the Center for Jewish Peoplehood Education.]
Walk into most synag
center for jewish peoplehood educationogues in North America today and you will find services for everyone: a tot Shabbat, a junior congregation, senior lunches, and latke and vodka programs for men in mid-life. They may not always be advertised within age brackets, but we all know who the target audience is. Sisterhoods have even been divided in some synagogues to cater to both young professionals/young mothers and older empty-nesters.


This is not only true for synagogues. Federations and JCCs create happy hours for their hip twenty-year-olds and gallery showings for those over 50. It's true that we've always had to market to specific populations to attract participants, but now we hardly have any programming meant to bring the entire community together. And this is not only true for institutional programming. Erica Brown, -in-residence for the Jewish Federation of Greater Washington has found it to be true in tejp full logohe socializing that takes place out of buildings. "We often have people around our Shabbat table who are 10-20 years younger or older, but are rarely invited to join families outside of our age range and if we are, it will be to those who are older than we are, not younger."

Six Theory of Change Pitfalls to Avoid

Six Theory of Change Pitfalls to Avoid, May 23, 2012, Stanford Social Innovation Review, by Matthew Forti 

Over the past decade, more and more nonprofits have developed a theory of change- that is, an articulation of the results an orstanford social innovation reviewganization must achieve to be successful, and how it, working alone or with others, will achieve them. Organizations do this either of their own volition or because funders, board members, or other parties ask them to do so. In fact, according to  Innovation Network's State of Evaluation 2010, half of nonprofits report having a theory of change, and of those, nearly 80 percent either created or revised it in the past year. But simply putting boxes and lines down on paper doesn't guarantee that your organization will make better decisions. 


To start, a good theory of change should answer six big questions:
1. Who are you seeking to influence or benefit (target population)?
2. What benefits are you seeking to achieve (results)?
3. When will you achieve them (time period)?
4. How will you and others make this happen (activities, strategies, resources, etc.)?
5. Where and under what circumstances will you do your work (context)?
6. Why do you believe your theory will bear out (assumptions)?


Read the entire article to learn about the six major pitfalls that, if avoided, can help nonprofits create actionable theories of change. 

Volunteers Are Not Free Labor

Volunteers Are Not Free Labor, June 20, 2012, eJP, by Stephen G. Donshik 
Most nonprofit organizations are thrilled to have volunteers working with them. Unfortunately, not all understand that before they can reap the benefits of utilizing volunteers, they must first commit to providing them with a meaningful experience. Only by investing and committing to the person who is prepared to donate their time will th
ejewish philanthropye volunteer be an asset to the organization.


Remember that from the perspective of the volunteers, they want an experience that simultaneously enables them to help people, learn new things and develop new skills while they are providing a service to the community. When an organization invests in its volunteers the volunteers will better serve the agency and feel a deeper sense of accomplishment, which ultimately benefits everyone involved.

Collaborating in Good and Bad Times for the Right Reasons

Collaborating in Good and Bad Times for the Right Reasons, June 1, 2012, Chronicle of Philanthropy, by Peter Kramer 

Though it may not always feel like it, the Great Recession officially ended in June 2009--three years ago. Nonprofits have been hit hard with increased demand for services and a shifting funding landscape in the years since the economic crisis began, and predictably there has been much talk of a resulting spike in collaborations and mergers. But the notionchronicle philanthropy that collaborations are somehow linked with recessions leads to the false assumption that nonprofits should collaborate because of financial motivations.


Organizing strategic collaborations solely to reduce costs does not set up collaborating partners for success, and it ignores a fundamental function: to do a better job of accomplishing the mission.


So why do we associate tough economic times with collaborations and mergers?

9 MORE Ways Board Members Can Raise Money Without Fundraising
9 MORE Ways Board Members Can Raise Money Without Fundraising, June 20, 2012, Social Velocity, by Nell Edgington

According to Social Velocity President, Nell Edgington it seems so obvious to that there are a million different ways for board members to contribute to the bottom-line of their nonprofits, that it didn't occur to her that a list like 9 Ways Board Members Can Raise Money Without Fundraising could be so valuable. But apparently it was.


So Nell wanted to add to the list, to give people even more ideas for how their board can contribute to the financial engine of their nonprofit without ever asking for money. And maybe with all of these options, more nonprofits will institute a requirement that EVERY board member contribute (either with a personal gift or by implementing some of these ideas) financially to the organization. So here are 9 more ways that board members who are fundraising "shy" can raise money for their nonprofit:  

  1. Invite 5 Friends to Tour the Program
  2. Talk About Your Nonprofit on Facebooksocial velocity
  3. Show Up to One of Your Nonprofit's Events
  4. Tell The Story Of Why You Serve
  5. Help Craft a Case for Support
  6. Analyze Your Networks
  7. Go on a Solicitation Call
  8. Educate a Funder About the Power of Capacity Capital
  9. Give a Gift 

Read the entire article to learn about these nine ways in more detail.  

4 Laws of Networks - and What They Say About Your Best Messenger

4 Laws of Networks, June 19 2012, Katya's Nonprofit Marketing Blog, by Katya Andersen 

If there's one thing that's changed in marketing lately, it's the relative importance of the messenger. Not so long ago, the world was dominated by broadcast marketing - also known as "spray and pray." You were the messenger, and you'd promulgate your official message to as many people as possible, praying that someone would listen - and buy, give or act. And a lot of the time it worked. Old-school advertisers will remember Sarnoff's Law, which said the value of a rkatya nonprofit marketing blogadio or TV station was proportional to the number of listeners or viewers. When a viewer was added, the value of ad space went up by one.


But in an era when most of the world's population has a phone and is half connect to the Internet, the most important messengers aren't the official ones - they are our peers, whose opinions are just a click away.  When Edelman's 2012 Trust Barometer came out earlier this year, the biggest finding was the increasing stock people put in the recommendations of people like them. We've all experienced it.  When is the last time you trusted an ad for a hotel over a review on Trip Advisor?  In speaking about this finding, David Armano of Edelman noted, it is important that we "share the stage with 'regular' people who have a voice via a variety of social channels," as well as to be "in tune with the topics and issues they care about and discuss."

Advance Payment Accountable Care Organization
The Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation (Innovation Center) is testing the Advance Payment Accountable Care Organization (ACO) Model for participants in the Medicare Shared Savings Program. The Shared Savings Program provides incentives for participating health care providers who agree to work together and become accountable for coordinating care for patients. The Advance Payment ACO Model is designed to test whether physician-owned or rural providers participating in the Shared Savings Program would benefit from additional start-up resources to build the necessary infrastructure, such as new staff or information technology systems. Selected participants in the testing of the Advance Payment ACO Model will receive upfront and monthly payments, which they can use to make important investments in their care coordination infrastructures.


Last October, the Innovation Center had announced that applications for the testing of the Advance Payment ACO model would only be accepted for the Shared Savings Program start dates of April 1, 2012 and July 1, 2012.  Today, however, the Innovation Center announced that it is accepting applications for an additional round of Advance Payment ACO Model for organizations that would begin the Shared Savings Program on January 1, 2013. 


Organizations interested in the testing of the Advance Payment ACO Model should start their application process by submitting a mandatory non-binding Notice of Intent (NOI) to apply for the Shared Savings Program performance period that begins January 1, 2013. This NOI is due June 30, 2012. Organizations that submit this NOI will then have the opportunity to submit applications to both the Shared Savings Program and the Advance Payment ACO Model. Information regarding the Shared Savings Program and the NOI is available at:  http://www.cms.gov/Medicare/Medicare-Fee-for-Service-Payment/sharedsavingsprogram/Application.html. More information about the Advance Payment ACO model is available at:  http://innovations.cms.gov/initiatives/ACO/Advance-Payment/index.html.

Addictions Specialists' Group - Response Deadline Today
At the request of our Addictions Specialists in Seattle and Chicago, AJFCA is working on creating a forum for professional staff who work with Jews in the field of Addictions.  We envision this forum as a means to share information and best practices in working with all types of addictions in the Jewish community via email/member forum and conference calls.  Other features for this group, such as speakers, webinars and in-person gatherings, will be determined by the group once it convenes. 

If there is a professional at your agency who works in Addictions--either as his/her entire job or as a piece of it--who might be interested in joining this community of practice, please have the professional email Lisa Budlow by June 22nd. Thank you.

Foundation Directory Online Renewal

In August 2011, more than 30 of our member agencies signed on to participate in AJFCA's institution-wide subscription to the Foundation Center's Foundation Directory Online Professional Plan. Each participating agency paid a significantly-reduced subscription fee of $390 for one year's access to the online directory of more than 100,000 foundations, corporate donors and grant making public charities. Users are able to build custom searches through nine comprehensive databases. 

foundation center 

In the first ten months of our subscription, AJFCA agencies created approximately 5,600 searches. According to the Foundation Center, AJFCA has created about 7,500 searches in the past year. In other words, our agencies saw real value in this tool and have made excellent use of it for the past two years!


The second subscription year will come to a close in mid-August. All users will have to renew if they would like another year of access. Member agencies who are interested in joining for the third year (whether or not you participated in year one or two) will have that opportunity. Assuming we have approximately 30 members join, the cost again will be approximately $400 per agency. If you are interested in participating, please email Megan Manelli no later than August 3, 2012.

As Charity Navigator puts it, 'this exceptional designation differentiates Jewish Family Service of San Diego from its peers and demonstrates to the public it is worthy of their trust.' "

Benefits Counseling 101: The Five Phases of Benefits Access

Benefits counselors play a critical role in helping clients learn about and apply for various public benefit programs. But what's really involved in helping your clients "get" public benefits?

NCOA's June webinar will walk through the full spectrum of benefits assistance: ncoa logo

  • Outreach and education
  • Screening
  • Application assistance

Benefits Access for Older Adults: Helping Clients Find Programs to Boost Their Economic Security

One in three older Americans is economically insecure-lacking the resources needed to meet basic food, housing, and medical needs. For these vulnerable older adults, who may have few opportunities to increase their earnings, public and private benefits can be a critical tool to help them free up limited income. Yet millions of seniors who qualify for this help are not enrolled in programs that can help them pay for food, prescriptions, medical care, and household utilities.


What are these benefits and how can we increase knowledge and access to them? That's the question we'll cover in this webinar. Discover:

  • What benefits-public and private-are available to low-income older adults to help them remain healthy and independent.
  • Common reasons why seniors are missing out on these programs, and strategies to address stigma and misconceptions around benefits.
  • Tools and resources available to help them apply for benefits.
