Shafiroff‘s impact improves the lives of underserved populations, women’s rights and well-being, health care, animal welfare, and resources for children in need. It is her passion for the land and people of Israel that has brought her to the forefront of the Jewish community and to receive Hadassah’s highest honor.

A three-course, gourmet kosher lunch will be served by Regal Caterers.
