1. This one is so JFNA -- no management, no accountability, no oversight....this:
"The Director of Global Operations is a key member of JFNA’s Israel & Overseas team. He/she will have a primary reporting relationship to the Managing Director, JFNA Israel Office. The Director of Global Operations promotes our vision of a fully integrated and networked team working in partnership with Federation professional and lay leadership committed to the collective support for Jewish communities around the world. Additionally, he/she will play an active role in cross-organizational activities, liaising with colleagues in Israel and the US to promote the Israel and overseas agenda of the Federation..."Yep, while JFNA is in transition, on the cusp of a new CEO, with a $950,000 consultant reviewing....whatever...with a new Board Chair on the near-term horizon, with two (count 'em...two) Task Forces "studying" among other things the Israel relationship, the inept JFNA-Israel is advertising for a "Director of Global Operations...(with) a primary reporting relationship to the Managing Director , JFNA Israel..." Huh? Seeing as there is no professional management and clearly no lay oversight, this kind of crap goes on and on and on.
(BTW, in a unique twist, this Director will qualify only if she/he can get over this hurdle: "[O]nly conversational Hebrew required." I guess you have to be able to speak it, not read it.)
2. GA Registration for the GA Lite Tel-Aviv Experience must be at an all-time low. Related organization staff are being offered deep deep registration discounts -- is the same discount being offered to Jewish federation staffers in North American federations? Is anything thought through at any point?
3. Three recent headlines from the FedWorld rag tells us a lot: JFNA Speak Out on Israel-Diaspora, JFNA is Disappointed That Israel Passes Nation-State Bill and Like Israel, Countries Grapple with Identity and Democracy and GA Will Address Integrating Israeli Minorities and More.
