Oh, what a night, when more than 350 of DC’s most savvy young adults hit the Howard Theatre for The Jewish Federation of Greater Washington’s Second Annual Impact DC.  This not-to-be missed event was a lively celebration of young adults’ commitment to strengthening the community locally, in Israel, and around the world.  Event organizers proudly reported that the evening raised more than $20,000 for The Federation’s Annual Campaign and they shared that attendees collectively donated $80,000 to this cause over the course of the year.  “This evening personifies the unwavering commitment of young adults to serve their community and each other, as well as recognizes their unbreakable faith in our people and our values.  And the fact that we had an amazing time doing it is a great bonus,” said Andrew Friedson, Impact DC Co-Chair.

Young Leadership of The Jewish Federation of Greater Washington was proud to celebrate the next generation’s leadership, as they take steps to shape the future of the Jewish community and beyond.  Co-chairs Andrew Friedson, Ariana Heideman, and Jess Sher, along with their committee of 18, did a phenomenal job assuring the night was an unbelievable success.  From a live-updated slideshow of event Instagram photos to endless food and drinks, the crowd left raving about Impact DC and looking forward to the next event.  “I’ve really enjoyed being a part of The Federation’s Young Leadership; I’ve attended social events like Impact DC, volunteer events, and held leadership positions.  I have built a great network of friends through YL and am looking forward to staying actively involved,” said Ariella Brodecki, an attendee at the event.
