The Jewish Federation of Greater Orange County recently held its annual major gifts dessert reception fundraiser event at the Lodge at Stony Ford Golf Course. More than 125 people turned out for the presentation of awards to Marsha and Morris Sobel and Linda and Marty Dlugatz in recognition of their many years of giving and volunteering on behalf of the federation.
Seth Siegel, author of the bestseller “Let There Be Water, Israel’s Solution to a Water-Starved World” was the featured speaker. Lawyer, activist, writer and successful serial entrepreneur, his essays on water and other policy issues have appeared in leading publications worldwide.
Federation President Leslie Green praised the honorees stating, “A vital pillar of Judaism is Tzedakah, which literally means righteousness. The Dlugatz and Sobel families understand this and know that building community and helping people who need help, no matter what their religion, gives their lives a greater sense of purpose. We would all do well to follow their examples
