Maslon attorney Jon Parritz was named General Campaign Chair for the 2006-07 annual campaign for the United Jewish Fund and Council
(UJFC) of St. Paul. At the UJFC’s annual meeting in May, Parritz was also recognized for his work as Men's Division Chair for the 2005-06 campaign and was named to the Executive Committee of the Board.
"I am excited to be able to help support the vital work of this organization, which raises funds from the greater St. Paul Jewish community to support a wide range of projects, including education, social services, senior care, refugee resettlement, and disaster relief, both locally and around the world," said Parritz, who has been an active board member and campaigner for UJFC for the past 18 years.
Founded in 1943, the UJFC seeks to unite, sustain and enhance the St. Paul area Jewish community and strengthen bonds with Jewish communities in Israel and around the world through financial resource development and planning, and by working in partnership with social service agencies, educational institutions and synagogues.
The UJFC annual campaign raises over $3 million a year to fund social services, education, elder care, and overseas projects.
