Over 120 women filled the Vine Family Auditorium at the Beckerman Lender Jewish Community Building on June 1 for Hats Off: Women's Philanthropy's 2023 Campaign Closing. Local author Nancy Gerber's memoir, "Burnt Toast," captivated the audience with tales of her immigrant grandmother, and Anna Stein from ORT America shared her inspiring journey as a young immigrant from Baku, Azerbaijan. These vibrant photos reflect the palpable energy in the room—a testament to the unity and empowerment felt by all. Special thanks to our esteemed guests, Nancy Gerber and Anna Stein, as well as to the dedicated committee who made this event possible. Hats Off was a celebration of the collective strength and commitment of these extraordinary women, paving the way for a brighter future.
