Women Embrace the “Crazy” for Season-Opening Event

About the Event
Women of all ages from across the Jewish community gathered for the Dorothy P. Seaman Department of Women’s Philanthropy season-opening Education Day on November 16 at the Polo Club for a spirited morning of friendship and philanthropy.

They heard from author and social activist, Dafna Michaelson Jenet, on how “It Takes a Little Crazy” to make a difference, giving the crowd a new enthusiasm. The women came away energized and focused to make that difference and reach new heights with their 2017 philanthropic efforts as “Women of Intention.” The ladies also heard from event co-chairs Melinda Friedman and Liza Wainger, as well as event Education Chair Marcia Beckerman.

The event was designed as a community outreach with more than 60 first-time attendees enjoying the program. The audience gave Jenet a standing ovation, as she served as a reminder that all it takes to create personal impact is involvement in something larger than one’s self. The event was memorable and set the tone for a great year of programming for women.
