(Courtesy of Emunah) Emunah of America is proud to welcome back the Women of Wonder (WOW) event on Wednesday, June 8, at 7:30 p.m., “In Person and Together Again.” The event will take place at The Space in the Flatiron District, a fabulous venue with a rooftop.
The WOW event honors and celebrates five accomplished women who impact and inspire everyone who they come across. This year, Emunah is proud to celebrate our incredible WOW awardees, Yael Oelbaum Fligelman from Hewlett, Sora Grunstein from Teaneck, Yonina Haber from Englewood, Dalia Horowitz from the Upper East Side and Ilana Wallenstein from Great Neck. Our awardees epitomize an Emunah Woman of Wonder, as each woman is accomplished professionally, communally involved and dedicated to raising successful families. The WOW chairs for the evening are Beth Goldman and Talia Goldwyn, who, together with a dedicated committee, are working tirelessly to raise funds for Israel’s most vulnerable children and families.
Sora Grunstein, Emunah of America financial secretary, said: “The Women of Wonder event is an inspirational and fun evening celebrating amazing female success. I am excited to be a part of such a meaningful night, which raises awareness and vital funds for Emunah’s programs and families.”
For over 70 years, Emunah of America has supported five residential programs, therapeutic treatments and education to empower children and young adults to heal and become functional and productive adults, dramatically changing their lives and futures.
Debbie Bienenfeld, national president, stated: “The Women of Wonder event is a special occasion to celebrate women who greatly impact their communities and Israel. Their commitment to their families, communities and professions dovetails with Emunah’s mission of advancing the status of women in Israel, providing them with unique educational opportunities through its high schools, college and mechina program, empowering young women to grow and succeed.”
The WOW event raises funds for the Alana Karp, a”h, Fund, established in memory of the former director of events and young leadership, whom the organization considers “beloved” and “dearly missed by all.” The Alana Karp, a”h, Fund supports scholarships and therapeutic treatments critical to the success of Emunah’s at-risk children and families.
