The umbrella organization of the North American Jewish federation system will be moving its offices. According to a memo posted on the Web site of the United Jewish Communities, the UJCâ€™s board of trustees approved a move to 25 Broadway in Lower Manhattan. The July 9 memo calls the move a â€œunique opportunity that takes advantage of several coalescing factors that offered a move to a great downtown New York location that would meet our needs for the long-term.â€ The UJC is currently located in Chelsea. The memo does not say if the space is bigger, larger or less expensive than the UJCâ€™s current offices, nor does it say when the organization will move.
