More than 600 men and women turned out for a very special celebration at Reform Congregation Keneseth Israel last week — the 17th annual Circle of Partners tribute.
This invitation-only program is Federation’s way of saying thank you to the more than 5,000 generous men and women who have helped to sustain Jewish values and provide for the future of the local and global Jewish community through their more than quarter century of giving to Federation.
Many Circle of Partner members have also opted to perpetuate their philanthropy by making a gift of cash or appreciated securities to the Federation Endowments Corporation.
During the event, which featured Jewish-American music from the Boston-based Safam, longtime Federation volunteer and Circle of Partner member Ralph Snyder was recognized for his exemplary service.
Betsy and Bob Horen and Marcia and Ernie Kahn served as event co-chairs. Keneseth Israel Rabbi Lance Sussman gave the D’var Torah. Federation Endowment Corporation President Mark S. Blaskey and Federation President Sherrie Savett also joined in the celebration.
Special thanks to Silver Lining Home Health Care, Inc. and Blank Rome.
