The new umbrella organization for North America’s Jewish federations is circulating to its members a $41.7 million budget proposal for next year. The United Jewish Communities’ budget plan trimmed slightly less than $1 million from this year’s budget, which is less than many federation leaders had expected. The UJC’s board of trustees will approve a final version of the budget by mid-June.
