Inspiring Women's Outreaches Help Fulfill Mitzvah of Tzedakah

The Dorothy Seaman Department of Women’s Philanthropy and our country clubs and communities hosted eight meaningful and enjoyable Women’s Outreaches in December. Women of all ages were invited to morning and afternoon sessions of light refreshments in beautiful homes and clubs across South Palm Beach County to learn more about what our Jewish Federation is doing for those in need in our community, in Israel and around the world. The powerful speakers for the outreaches included Linda Hurwitz, National Campaign Chair of JFNA; Lynda Fishman, motivational speaker and author of “Repairing Rainbows;” and Dr. Bernd Wollschlaeger, author of “A German Life: Against All Odds Change is Possible.” Women left these warm, welcoming gatherings even more inspired to fulfill the mitzvah of tzedakah. “Whoever practices tzedakah and justice fills the world with loving kindness.” –Talmud: Sukkah The successful Outreaches were led by the efforts of Women’s Philanthropy Chair, Emily Grabelsky; Women’s Campaign Chair, Judi Schuman; Lion Vice Chair, April Leavy; Pomegranate Vice Chair, Kathy Green and all the gracious hosts and Community Women’s Chairs (listed below). Thanks also go out to the generous Women’s Philanthropy sponsor, Wells Fargo Private Bank, for making these outreaches possible.
