An Inspirational Sunday Morning at YAD’s Brunch at the Museum (January 10, 2016)

About the Event
A group of more than 75 young Jewish professionals packed the Boca Raton Museum of Art for Sunday brunch. Guests enjoyed a VIP tour of the History Makes Memory exhibit before the museum opened to the public. The special exhibit, which is co-sponsored by the Jewish Federation of South Palm Beach County, marks the 70th Anniversary of the end of both World War II and the Holocaust with a moving tribute to the human spirit and a reminder of the fundamental importance of freedom and tolerance.

After the exclusive tour, attendees enjoyed brunch while hearing from Moti Farkas, a 91 year-old Holocaust survivor who not only survived 3 labor camps and Dachau but immediately after being liberated immigrated to Israel where he fought in the War of Independence and served as an officer in the IDF until 1962. All of the attendees were captivated by Moti’s story of courage, survival and pride of being Jewish, and were inspired to never forget and to always protect our Jewish future!

Those in attendance also learned about YAD 365, an incredible new initiative that gives you the chance to become part of the Young Adult Division (YAD) and enjoy free admission to YAD Happy Hours, a VIP reception at the YAD Year-End event and other exclusive events and benefits. All you need to do is make a $365 pledge (a dollar a day) to the Jewish Federation of South Palm Beach County’s 2016 Annual Campaign!
