The UJA-Federation of New York held its Westchester Centennial Celebration at the Capitol Theatre in Port Chester on March 29. The 100th birthday event included a concert by
Harry Connick Jr. and his band. Supporters Cindy and Ben Golub and Lois Kohn-Claar and Gary Claar were honored.
Westchester Regional Chair Martine Fleishman told the gathering that “The very essence of UJA – what was true in 1917 and remains true until today – is that we care for one another. Once we understand what UJA accomplishes – putting compassion into action to better humanity and our lives – we’re easily moved to support it.”
Proceeds from the event will help UJA-Federation’s nearly 100 health, human-service, educational and community-building agencies, including the 12 in Westchester. Event chairs included Karen and Andrew Greenspan, Michele and Kevin Gregson, Randi and Dan Kreisler, Stephanie and Lee Speigel,Drs. Rochelle and Joshua Waldman, and Giselle and Alan Weissman.
