JWF hears from grant recipients at recent Fall Get-Together

The Jewish Women’s Foundation (JWF) had its annual Fall Get-Together on Nov. 14. JWF members welcomed new Grants Chair Joyce Lynn Branfman and new Membership Chair Alison Bell Keim, as well as new member Bonnie Friedman. Members also heard from a local grant recipient about how their dollars were used. JWF awarded a grant to the Jewish Community Relations Council (JCRC) to help fund its Jewish Women’s Renaissance Project (JWRP) trip to Israel this past summer for local mothers who had never been to Israel before. Trip participant Karen Cassway spoke to the group about how the trip was a life-changing experience that strengthened her Jewish identity and her connection to Israel. Rhonda Shevrin, JCRC staff and coordinator for the South Jersey cohort, presented with Karen. At the event were (from left). Sara-ellen Greenberg; Peggy David, JWF chair; and new member Bonnie Friedman.
