United Jewish Federation of Tidewater’s annual phone-a-thon, Super Sunday, perpetuates the mitzvah of Tzedakah and is a grassroots, community-driven, community- building effort.

This year, a social media aspect is included with the Monopoly themed event, appropriately tagged “It’s Your Move.” Everyone is challenged to get in the game. Community members are being asked to post a video, photo or words of a person, place or thing that have made an impact on who they are as Jewish individuals.

Community members then tag the post with #ItsYourMove757 and #SuperSunday757 so the collection may be viewed as a whole.

These stories, shared across Facebook, have inspired and connected the Jewish community. On Super Sunday, the community will come together in spirit and action to raise funds, ensuring Jews here in Tidewater, in Israel and around the globe receive quality programming, have a variety of resources to enrich their lives, and get help when it is desperately needed.

If you or someone you know exercises at the JCC, attends synagogue, receives financial assistance, has been on a Taglit-Birthright Israel trip and cares about Jews and non-Jews in need all over the world, Super Sunday is your day, and it’s your move.

How to participate :
• Volunteer: sign ups are available at JewishVA.org/SuperSunday
• Answer the call on January 31
• Donate in advance at JewishVA.org/SuperSunday
• All of the above

Super Sunday contributions ensure that the programs and institutions that enrich Jewish life locally, in Israel and globally remain vibrant and strong.

This year, everyone is urged to make a pledge and impact lives.
