WCJCC director impressed with Milwaukee’s JCC
June 1st, 2012
Smadar Bar-Akiva, the executive director of the World Conference of Jewish Community Centers, was so impressed by his visit to the Harry & Rose Samson Family Jewish Community Center in Milwaukee, that he had to write about it.
Bar-Akiva was a member of a WCJCC delegation that visited Milwaukee May 2-6. (See Chai Lights photo, page 25.) He wrote his impressions in a May 21 opinion article “A Hidden Jewish Gem in the Midwest” published on the eJewish Philanthropy website.
In Milwaukee, “we found a JCC that exemplifies community building and Jewish education at its best,” Bar-Akiva wrote. “At the conclusion of three intensive days we learned a thing or two on how to do things right.”
