The Women’s Event Focuses on Federation’s Impact

Nearly 600 women from across Miami’s Jewish community came together on Wednesday for The Women’s Event of the Greater Miami Jewish Federation, where they were inspired, felt empowered, enjoyed friendship and made a difference through meaningful contributions to the Annual Greater Miami Jewish Federation/UJA Campaign. Leslie Benitah chaired the the event, which focused on the compelling reasons for the importance of WHY FEDERATION? and was answered by Women’s Philanthropy Campaign Chair Elise Udelson. Another highlight of the day was a conversation between Women’s Philanthropy President Tammy Woldenberg and Israeli-American actress and activist Noa Tishby. Tishby uses her stardom to speak passionately about the rise of antisemitism and anti-Israel rhetoric. She urged guests to speak out whenever and wherever possible. In addition, Fran Berrin received the prestigious Kipnis Wilson/Friedland award. The event raised $1.5 million to meet the needs of the community and our people.
