Federations can respond most effectively to the challenge of continuity by providing greater resources to enable the transformation of local institutions into compelling Jewish communities. Only such inspired communities will engage marginal Jews and motivate them to begin the journey of Jewish living and learning. Synagogues, JCCs, Hillels, and Jewish summer camps are of particular significance in the creation of compelling communities.
