A Match Made by Federation

What happens when a Jew from Mexico locks eyes with a Jew from Israel across a crowded room?


Marcos and Shlomit were perfect strangers when they met at a Federation event for young adults. But their shared love for Jewish community quickly became the foundation of an international romance.


“[Federation] sets up an environment where you’re with people with shared interests and shared histories,” says Shlomit. “Without Federation, I'm not sure we would have met each other.”
