Baltimore, MD - Oct. 16, 2018 - It was an exciting day for Jewish Baltimore as the community settled in at M&T Bank Stadium on Sunday, October 14 to celebrate two major wins.

In the late afternoon, hundreds of community members enjoyed watching a dominating victory by the Baltimore Ravens at The Associated: Jewish Community of Baltimore’s Community Watch Party. 

And earlier that day, hundreds more celebrated the success of the community, raising more than $1 million during Super Sunday.

Super Sunday, co-chaired by Arthur Adler and Rachel Goldbloom, is the official kick-off to The Associated’s Annual Campaign. The money raised supports Jews in Baltimore, Israel and around the world.

Through The Associated’s system of agencies and overseas partners, the Annual Campaign helps fund critical services around the globe. These include the educational support SHEMESH that provides for those with disabilities, the career service counseling provided by Jewish Community Services (JCS) for those looking for new or better employment, the loans and counseling offered by CHAI to help community members become successful homeowners and the financial support for programs like MASA to help young adults learn during a gap year in Israel.

This year, the 2019 Annual Campaign is chaired by Steve Fader. Ronnie Footlick serves as the 2019 Associated Women Campaign Chair.

Make Change Campaign

The Associated is adding a few new ways for Baltimoreans to help their community through its Make Change Campaign. Community members can:

  • Drop off their spare change at several designated events throughout the year. These include #GivingTuesday(November 27), Community Mitzvah Day (December 25), Martin Luther King, Jr. Day (January 21) and Good Deeds Day (April 7). Additional days and locations may be added.

  • Join The Associated’s credit or debit card round-up program. Daily transactions will be rounded up to the nearest dollar. For example, a tall latte from the local coffee shop that costs $2.95 will be rounded up to $3.00 and $.05 will be donated to The Associated. The public can sign up at or to start rounding up, text ASSOCIATED to 43506 and follow the prompts.

To increase the impact of the community’s gifts, a number of corporate partners have signed on to match donations raised during the Make Change Campaign. These organizations will cumulatively match the total for the year – in essence, doubling what is available to help our community.
