UJA Federation celebrates Jewish philanthropy

The UJA Federation of Greenwich will celebrate its annual dinner Saturday, Oct. 27, at 7:30 p.m. at the Tamarack Country Club where more than 150 philanthropic leaders and dignitaries will be in attendance.

The theme of the celebration is “From One Generation to the Next,” which is in honor of two generations of Kallmans, the family whose members, according to the UJA, “… have demonstrated outstanding commitment to the Jewish community.”

The evening will include a dinner reception and presentation of the Weitzman Youth Award for Jewish Philanthropy. This year’s recipient is Isabelle Mann, who will be honored for her philanthropic work with JTeen Leadership, where she sits on the Leadership Circle Board.

The gala is an evening that celebrates Jewish philanthropy, which the UJA calls “a value which has been passed from one generation to the next and its impact felt around the world.”

“Funds donated to the UJA Federation not only aid the most vulnerable populations worldwide, they are an investment in the community,” it said in a press release, which noted the UJA’s “long track record of supporting innovative, groundbreaking new programs that care for and feed those who need it most.”

“Whether helping the unemployed live with dignity or supporting families with special needs, the foundation is dedicated to the greater good,” it said.
