Give Where You Live

Chicagoans Michele and Joe Wein, both have long family traditions of Jewish community involvement and met as members of the UJA National Young Leadership Cabinet. Tzedakah is a natural part of their lives and inspired their involvement in both the Los Angeles and Chicago Jewish Federations.

When they became part-time Park City residents, they were impressed by the vibrant and embracing Jewish community and wanted to become involved and invest in their new community. Michele explained, “We have a home in two communities and believe that we should give where we live.

Ultimately, it’s not just what we do but why we do it – which is to create the kind of enduring Jewish community we all want and need, based on shared goals and Jewish values. And we have a strong interest in building this community in Utah. That is why we choose to give locally in Utah as well as in our primary community.”
