Don’t miss the Women’s Philanthropy division of the United Federation of Greater Stamford, New Canaan and Darien 2014 Spring Dinner with special guest Dr. Ruth Westheimer.
Dr. Ruth Westheimer is a cultural icon. Her groundbreaking work is the product of multiple degrees at The New School and Columbia University. This Sorbonne-trained psychologist was born in Wiesenfeld, Germany as the only child of Orthodox parents. Her mother sent her to an orphanage in Switzerland for the duration of the war. It was in Switzerland that she learned of the loss of both her parents in the Shoah. Dr. Ruth immigrated to Palestine where she became a member of the Haganah as a scout and a sniper because of her diminutive size. Eventually she arrived in New York, became an American citizen and the radio personality that we know and love. Her endless commitment to the Jewish people, Israel and religion is inspirational. Please join us at this exceptional and personal event.
The event will be held May 15th at Temple Beth El, located at 350 Roxbury Road in Stamford, CT at 6:30 pm. There will be a raffle, book sale and book signing with Dr. Ruth.
Event Highlight: One lucky bidder at the auction and a date will attend a personal lunch with Dr. Ruth at a highly-respected restaurant.
