Morning with “Theodor Herzl” Will Thank “Golden Givers” for 18+ Generous Years of Federation Giving

“Golden Givers” who have given to a UJA/Jewish Federation campaign for 18 years or more are invited to a special thank you “Golden Gathering.” Recognizing their extraordinary commitment and the seeds they have planted and continue to nourish, the Jacobson Jewish Community Foundation (JJCF) of the Jewish Federation of South Palm Beach County will be showing its appreciation at a special gathering on Thursday, November 6, 2014 at 9:30 a.m. They’ll gather in Zinman Hall on the Federation campus at 9901 Donna Klein Boulevard, Boca Raton for breakfast (dietary laws observed) and a special presentation by “Theodor Herzl.” And they’ll also hear briefly from some of their inspiring peers.

“Supporting the Jewish community, the State of Israel and the Jewish people worldwide through Federation gifts has been a source of pride and satisfaction for so many local residents, whose examples have motivated countless others,” said Dorothy Wizer, Golden Gathering Chair. “With the Golden Gathering, the local Jewish Federation and JJCF have created an opportunity to let them know how much we care about our Golden Givers, and to thank them for all they have done in the past and will continue to do in the future. Together, we truly make a remarkable difference.”

As a long time, dedicated member who has endowed gifts in both the Jewish Federation of South Palm Beach County and the Richmond, Virginia Jewish communities, Wizer feels the vital importance of supporting and enhancing Jewish lives in both her communities, while inspiring giving in others. She recalls, “I was raised to help others, to give tzedakah, to be involved. I have supported the Federations since I was 15, and my contribution is as meaningful today as it was then. As my own children and grandchildren have become active Federation supporters in their own communities, I feel I am part of an important legacy.”

The couvert is $18 per person, and there will be no solicitation of funds. Barclays is the generous sponsor of the 2015 Golden Gathering. For information about the event or to RSVP, visit jewishboca.org/goldengivers or contact Linda Hurst at 561.852.3170 or lindah@bocafed.org.
