2019 Book of Life Celebration

On Tuesday, May 14th, under the leadership of Laurie Sheff, the Jewish Foundation held its 16th Book of Life Celebration with over 500 guests in attendance. They heard inspiring words from David Matlow, Chair of the Jewish Foundation, guest speaker and author of “Double Threat” Ellin Bessner, Teen Philanthropist Koby Gottlieb, and community leader, Shael Rosenbaum.


24 Honourees added their stories to the growing Book of Life, now containing close to 400 stories. These stories are an inspiration to future generations, so they can understand the significance of tzedakah in their lives, for the Jewish community and for Israel.
