Honor two remarkable community leaders: Regina Spektor and David Pinsky at our annual UJA FSU Signature Event. We’ll celebrate the contributions of our amazing community and pay tribute to two stalwart defenders of justice and human rights who also stand at the pinnacle of their professional fields of the arts and law. 
We hope you’ll come together with our community to amplify UJA’s powerful work meeting the moment: responding to wars in Israel and Ukraine, rising antisemitism around the globe, and urgent and ongoing challenges in New York. 

UJA FSU is a welcoming space for Jews with roots in the former Soviet Union (FSU) who want to come together as a community of philanthropists to strengthen their community and beyond. It is a place to connect with other leaders who are giving back to help people in need of all backgrounds and build a thriving Jewish community in New York and around the world. 


Show your support for our honorees with a gift to UJA.
