A True Night of Inspiration (February 9, 2016)

About the Event
Nine incredible women who lead our Jewish community took the stage on February 9 at Olympic Heights High School before a crowd of 700 from a full cross section of Jewish South Palm Beach County. To cheers, tears and ardent applause, they shared their insights and inspirations, their passion for Jewish life, their pride in our community and their journeys to Jewish leadership. Together they raised the ruach of our one-of-a-kind Jewish community to new levels. Another incredible woman, Rachelli Fraenkel, whose son’s kidnapping and murder in Israel brought the Jewish world together, closed the event with a video message of Jewish unity.

The unforgettable evening was organized under the auspices of the Deborah and Larry D. Silver Center for Jewish Engagement (CJE) a new division of our Federation. At the start of the program, the Silvers were lauded for their vision and generosity in making the groundbreaking Center and the Night of Inspiration possible.
