A careful reader of the Blog, after reading the Looking for Places to Cut? Post yesterday, asked a simple question -- how much are we spending on Global Operations? Sorry I left that out. For 2009-2010 your federation and mine spent/is spending $4,142,000 for our Global Ops/Israel and Overseas. There are 16.3 FTEs in that important office...obviously quite busy. I am hoping against hope that the new lay and professional leadership will offer immediate lay and professional oversight and leadership to the current aimless wandering.
As an aside, if my numbers are wrong, correct me.
