As we reach the culmination of our 100 Days of Tikkun Olam, please join us in honoring the legacy of Covenant House and Covenant Manor. Special Guest Alina Spaulding joins us to speak about her amazing trek from the Ukraine, whose journey would have been impossible with out help from Federations like ours. In addition we will honor community volunteer award recipients and elect and install our 2017-2018 Board of Directors and Officers for all of our agencies.
Special Guest Alina Spaulding is a vibrant national figure in Jewish Leadership. Born in the Ukraine, Alina emigrated to the U.S. in 1979 with her family, with the help of Jewish communities like ours. Since 1994, Alina has shared her touching, amusing and inspirational story with Jewish communities around the county. In addition to her work as a speaker, she has been involved in humanitarian aid work in the U.S. and overseas, creating community youth programs, and community building. Alina will share the story of her emigration to the United States and how the work of the United Jewish Communities/Jewish Federations of North America played a major role.
