Join us at our exclusive Brooklyn rooftop reception for an evening of cocktails, city views, and connecting with your Brooklyn community, all in support of UJA’s critical work.

We’ll also have the privilege of hearing from Dr. Shmuel Hirschmann, director of the Lev Hasharon Mental Health Center, which is a UJA grantee. As an expert specializing in the field of sexual trauma, Dr. Hirschmann will share his professional experiences and work in the aftermath of October 7, as well as his insights on the broader mental health crisis in Israel.

Plus, you’ll learn more about how UJA is meeting the moment, including the ongoing war in Israel and escalating antisemitism in New York and around the world.
