Emunah spring luncheon honors empowered women

Dr. Micole Tuchman

Emunah, which evolved through the efforts of a few visionary women in Israel in 1935, will pay tribute to “Empowering Women” at its May 19 spring luncheon at the Prince George Ballroom in Manhattan. Among this year’s honorees is Dr. Micole Tuchman, a dermatologist from Englewood.

Sora Grunstein and Tova Gerson, both of Bergen County, are chairing the luncheon, and Cheryl Borenstein, Shaindy Brothman, Ronnie Faber, Amy Gibber, Felicia Hoenig, Lisa Schechter, and Debbie Siegler are local committee members. Proceeds will support Emunah’s four award-winning girls high schools and its college for young women in Israel.

Miriam Wallach, general manager of the Nachum Segal Network and host of radio program “That’s Life,” will be the keynote speaker.

Alana Kessler, founder/owner/director of Sangha Yoga Shala; child and adolescent psychiatrist Dr. Joyce Weg Rydzinski; Lisa Septimus, yoetzet halacha for the Five Towns and Manhattan communities and rebbitzen of the Young Israel of North Woodmere; and speech-language pathologist Susan T. Weg, all will be honored at the luncheon.

Emunah has been instrumental in protecting women’s rights in Israel, operating programs for women in business, leadership lectures, and networking opportunities. Its 250 social welfare and educational programs in Israel strive to improve the lives of children, families, and senior citizens. The organization received the Israel Prize for its social, educational, humanitarian, and cultural contribution to Israeli society.
