Emunah of America Holds WOW Event

On May 14, a mild and beautiful spring evening, Emunah of America held its WOW event honoring Women of Wonder. Emunah paid tribute to three remarkable women: Sharie Loeffler Leopold, managing director of Leveraged Finance; Dr. Janine Nathan, Fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics; and Shevy Solomon, CMO and investor relations officer at Jerrick Media Holdings. The cocktail reception was held at the WeWork speakeasy, the Mailroom, on Wall Street. Over 200 people came out to support Emunah and the honorees. The three honorees do indeed “do it all.” At the top of their fields, involved with their families and communities, they totally exemplify the modern woman of wonder.

The evening’s keynote speaker was Sandra Stern, president of Lionsgate Television group and a highly respected entertainment executive powerhouse. For the past 15 years, Sandra has played an integral role in guiding Lionsgate to record-breaking growth. She is also one of the founding members of the UCLA Law Women organization and was the 2015 UCLA Law Alumnus of the Year. She has been a mentor to so many and talked about her personal story and values.

For 70 years, Emunah has been one of Israel’s leading women’s social services agencies, culminating in being awarded the coveted Israel Prize. Beginning with a handful of women who believed that they could help and nurture Israel’s most fragile citizens, Emunah women built a “Kingdom of Chesed” encompassing vast educational and social services throughout Israel. Like the women honored at the evening’s event, Emunah is a testament to what women can achieve when they work with determination, skill and love. The only suitable adjective is certainly WOW.
