Annual Gala January 26, 2019 L ’dor V’dor
CELEBRATE THE JCC & THE HONOREES
from Generation to Generation
The Annual Gala supports our diverse programming, exceptional events and activities that establish lifelong connections and enhance our individual and collective well-being.
There are few people in the community without a special connection to the Louis S. Wolk JCC of Greater Rochester. Grandparents met at the JY. Parents met at Camp Seneca Lake. First friendships were formed in the Wolk Children’s Center. From generation to generation, l’dor v’dor, the JCC is a place where memories are made, traditions are passed down, and culture is honored. Tonight we celebrate them together.
Hosted By 13 WHAM News Hosts: Don Alhart & Scott Hetsko Isobel Goldman & Jennie Schaff Tikkun Olam (Repairing the World) Award One family, mother and daughter, generously devoting themselves to making a significant difference generation after generation in the Jewish community and in the world. Loren Flaum Young Leadership Award For his unwavering leadership, volunteerism and dedication to the JCC and the community. M&T Bank Community Partnership Award For their past, current and future commitment to envisioning a Rochester that celebrates and maintains diversity for future generations.
