Hosted by Esther and Rafi Katz and attended by a wide spectrum of the L.A. Jewish community, the 4th Annual Los Angeles Puah Brunch was recently held to support the groundbreaking endeavors of Puah – the Israel-based international organization that assists Jewish couples with fertility problems within halachic parameters.

Puah’s motto, “Building families: baby by baby,” is practiced by Puah’s dedicated team of doctors. One of those doctors was this year’s Physician of the Year, Dr. Michael Feinman, FACOG.

The brunch’s program included a memorial tribute to Faiga Nesha bas Binyomin Hacohen, a”h, the mother of Jeff and Dr. Steven Presser and Mrs. Marilyn Sohacheski. A family grandson, Binyamin Sohacheski, delivered the moving homage.

Keynote speaker David Suissa, president of TRIBE Media Group/L.A. Jewish Journal, was introduced by Yaron Chasid, a staunch supporter of Puah and a beneficiary of its work.

Suissa extolled Puah’s work, saying, “When I see an organization like PUAH that deals with children, fertility and having babies, and helping others create more Jewish souls, that to me is the highest level of giving.”

Lea Davidson, Puah’s executive director in charge of its American offices, thanked Esther and Rafi Katz for hosting the brunch, along with expressing gratitude to Ahuva Goldstein, Puah’s head of supervision on the West Coast, and the speakers and guests. “I salute you and thank you all for coming and being a part of the berachah we bring to those in need,” Davidson said.
