Celebrate 2016 Gala: Honoring Women’s Leadership and Philanthropy

March 22, 2016 Waltham $0.00

Our gala is at capacity, but your support of Hebrew College is still needed and meaningful. Thank you!   Donate Here.

Celebrate 2016 is Hebrew College’s major fundraising event, providing vital support for its innovative educational programs, young adult outreach, and interfaith and community initiatives.

We are pleased to honor four women for their exemplary Jewish communal leadership and commitment to Jewish education in Boston and beyond. Each will receive the Esther Award of Leadership and Philanthropy.

Geraldine Acuña-Sunshine serves on the CJP Board as annual campaign co-chair, and on the boards of The Rashi School and American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee.

Winnie Sandler Grinspoon, president of the Harold Grinspoon Foundation, is a member of the Jewish Funders Network and Cornell Hillel boards.

Sari Anne Rapkin, former chair and current member of the CJP Board, sits on the boards of the JCC of Greater Boston, Jewish Family Service of Metrowest, Heller School of Brandeis University, Jewish Federations of North America, Mayyim Hayyim, and The New Center for Arts & Culture.

Betty Ann Greenbaum Miller z”l, whose life and legacy exemplified leadership and compassion, was a founding member of the Center for Interreligious and Communal Leadership Education (CIRCLE) at Hebrew College, served on the board of The Rashi School, the Advisory Council for JF&CS’s Jewish Healing Connections, and was a member of the National Association of Jewish Chaplains.

The evening will feature former Boston Globe writer and Pulitzer Prize winner Ellen Goodman, who has spent most of her life as a keen observer, chronicling the way families, women’s lives, the media and values have been transformed over the turbulent past generation. An innovative force in American journalism, commenting on the tumult and impact of social change, Ms. Goodman began writing her syndicated column for The Boston Globe in 1974. Shattering the exclusive mold of men writing about politics, she was one of the first women to open up the op-ed pages to women’s voices. Now, as founder of The Conversation Project, she shares insights and inspiration, encouraging families and individuals to tell their stories and express their wishes for end of life care.
