Rhoda Birnbaum, president of Na’Amat USA’s Palm Beach Council, recently announced that the organization will honor U.S. Congresswoman Lois Frankel (D-District 21) on Monday, Feb. 25 at 11:30 a.m. at the Delray Beach Golf Club (2100 Highland Ave., Delray Beach). The community is invited to the luncheon.
As part of its continuing program of “Celebration of Women,” Na’Amat is honoring Frankel, who has spent a lifetime delivering positive change to her community as a civic leader, state legislator, mayor and now member of the United States House of Representatives.
A trailblazer in the Florida Legislature, Frankel served as the first female Democratic minority leader. She became a leading force to improve the economic condition of families and seniors and protect human rights and women’s reproductive freedom — fights she continues today in the U.S. Congress as co-chair of the Women’s Caucus.
Reservations for the luncheon are $36 and are being received by the chapter chairwomen, or by calling the Palm Beach office at (561) 368-8898. Chapter chairs are Doris Katz (561-961-4912), Shirley Marshak (561-451-3541), Elayne Cohen (561-251-7929) and Rhoda Birnbaum (561-638-0967). The deadline for reservations is Feb. 11.
Grace Azar, an international singer experienced in English, Spanish, Hebrew, Yiddish, Italian and American standards, will entertain at the luncheon.
Na’Amat USA is part of an international organization that advocates for and supports women and children in Israel. It is the largest women’s movement in Israel. Its top priority is to advance and strengthen the status of women in the family, workforce and in society. Luncheon proceeds will benefit quality daycare to more than 18,000 children in 250 centers throughout the State of Israel.
