I used to amuse myself at Jewish organizational meetings by building crossword puzzles out of the acronyms then prevalent in Jewish communal life. Got me through a lot of meetings. Later, I tried acrostics but then limited my "skills" to just the acronyms of organizations in which I was involved. But, try as I do, I can't keep up with the ever-changing world of Jewish organizational acronyms -- particularly those within UJC itself. With the advent of its reorganization, UJC has opened up a whole new world of fun as well as renewing itself:
GOIO -- the new "Global Operations -- Israel and Overseas" a personal favorite
C3 -- "Community Capacity Consulting"
CJP -- the new "Center for Jewish Philanthropy"
SMT -- that old "Senior Management Team"
PCC -- this is, of course, the "Prioritization and Collaboration Committee" (Extra credit if you know what this is or was -- hint, it's informing the "National Federation/Agency Alliance" [the Alliance] which is itself the successor to the "National Funding Councils" -- I am not making this up.)
IAI -- the "Israel Advocacy Initiative" (which may be independent of the GOIO, then, again, maybe not)
JP&I -- "Jewish Peoplehood and Identity"
IECPDTF -- This should be a snap -- the "Israel Emergency Campaign Post-Disengagement Task Force"
NAD -- the "New Acronym Division" of UJC..more to come certainly
I have covered but a few. I would welcome, as always, your assistance and input.
