Golden Gathering Chanukah Party Set For Boca

  BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (From Jewish Federation) — “Golden Givers” who have given to the UJA/Federation campaign for 18 years or more are invited to a special thank you “Golden Gathering” Chanukah party. Recognizing their extraordinary commitment and the seeds they have planted and continue to nourish, the Jacobson Jewish Community Foundation (JCCF) of the Jewish Federation of South Palm Beach County will be showing its appreciation at a festive event on Thursday, December 10, 2015 at 9:30 a.m. They’ll gather in Zinman Hall on the Federation campus at 9901 Donna Klein Boulevard in Boca Raton for bagels, latkes and more (dietary laws observed) and enjoy a holiday celebration with musical entertainment from a live Klezmer band.

 “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. “The Golden Gathering is an opportunity 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 longtime dedicated member who has endowed gifts in both the Jewish Federation of South Palm Beach County and the Richmond, Virginia, Jewish communities, Wizer recognizes the importance of enhancing Jewish life in both communities, while inspiring giving in others. 

 “I have supported the Federations since I was 15, and my contribution is as meaningful today as it was then,” she said. “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 for the event is $18 per person, and there will be no solicitation of funds. For more information or to RSVP, visit jewishboca.org/goldengivers.
