10 Q's for the days of awe

If you do nothing else for the High Holidays of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, do your JCF10Q – ten questions that will get you thinking about where you’ve been, where you’re going, and what values you want to take on the journey ahead.

In recognition of the Jewish Community Federation’s (JCF) historic Centennial celebration this year, JCF has partnered with Reboot to mark the occasion by inviting the entire Bay Area community to share their views and visions for the next 100 years on JCF10Q.org. The time between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, a traditional period of reflection and renewal, is an ideal opportunity to kick-off an exciting initiative that will inspire self-introspection and contemplation of our relationship to the earth, ourselves and the community in which we live.



How it works

Starting September 8, 2010, people of all ages and backgrounds will have an opportunity to answer ten tailored questions over ten days by visiting JCF10Q.org. The questions can be answered in private or after discussion with family and friends. A moving billboard will advertise a different question each day throughout the Bay Area, and participants can receive Twitter feeds and Facebook updates. Once you sign up, a question will land in your inbox. At the end of the 10 days, your answers get sent to the secure online JCF10Q vault for safekeeping. One year later, the vault will open and your answers will land back in your email inbox for private reflection. Next year the whole process begins again. As Susan Mall, Centennial Director of the San Francisco based Jewish Community Federation, commented: “The same Jewish values that guided the roots of our organization laid the foundation for Federation’s mission today. Dedicated to building and strengthening our Jewish community, we’re working on broadening and deepening our reach by engaging the next generation to ensure the Jewish future.” Ask one question. Ask them all. Reflect together. Sign up on September 8, 2010 at www.JCF10Q.org.
