While philanthropies everywhere struggle to pry dollars loose from communities reeling from the recession, Baltimore's Jewish federation is celebrating what in these times qualifies as an outstanding result: simply raising as much money as it did the year before. The annual campaign of the Associated: Jewish Community Federation of Baltimore hit the mark Tuesday, the last day of the fiscal year, organization officials said. The $30.8 million they raised means they will be able to fund all of the Associated's local educational, cultural and assistance programs at the same levels this year as last.

As the third decade of this century began, Baltimore's Jewish community had 20 organizations in place to help the needy within it. The concept of organized charity has deep roots in Judaism, and Baltimore Jewry was doing its part to continue the tradition. But in 1920 a question was raised: Why not unite those 20 separate charities into a single philanthropic and community-building organization? The unification proposal got the nod and in January 1921, the Associated: Jewish Community Federation of Baltimore was born.

Darrell D. Friedman, a nationally known fund-raiser who built Baltimore's federation of Jewish charities into one of the most successful in the country, announced yesterday he will leave his post as president next year. Friedman, 59, told the board of trustees of The Associated: Jewish Community Federation of Baltimore that it was time to move on from the job he has held for 16 years, a period when the charity's annual fund-raising campaign grew from $18.9 million to $29.3 million. Friedman said the decision was driven by his approaching 60th birthday, the recent birth of his fourth grandchild and a wish to make room for new blood as younger leadership takes the helm of the volunteer side of The Associated.
