The Los Angeles Chapter of EMUNAH’s recent gala dinner at the Sephardic Temple in Los Angles featured Eishet Chayil Award recipient Naomi Vanek’s generous donation to refurbish a classroom at the Torah V’Emunah High School in Jerusalem. Keter Shem Tov Award beneficiaries Dr. Richie and Ellen Katz’s donation was earmarked to refurbish and update dental equipment at Achuzat Sarah Children’s Home in Bnei Brak. For their part, Rivki and Sammy Mark bequeathed a garden at the EMUNAH Appleman College of Art and Technology in Jerusalem. On the light side a very humorous video about the awardees, starring the Katzes and Marks, was viewed by the dinner guests.

EMUNAH National President Fran Hirmes updated the attendees on the organization’s activities in Israel. Through the efforts of the dinner chairpersons – Marlene and Gerard Einhorn; Bernice Gelman; Magda and Dr. Harold Katz; Ayala Naor; Eva and Michael Neuman; and Robbie and Sam Swartz – the dinner was very successful. It drew the largest crowd ever for an EMUNAH Los Angles event.
