Join us for our Healthcare signature event this fall where we’ll honor Dr. Shalom Kalnicki, chairman of the Department of Radiation Oncology at Montefiore, and the Potack Family, founders of Unitex. As philanthropic leaders, the honorees are standout examples of the impact both families and individuals can have in these uncertain times and how shared values connect generations.

We’ll also recognize UJA’s powerful work and the impact of UJA’s Healthcare community on confronting escalating antisemitism, responding to the ongoing war in Israel, and helping New Yorkers of all backgrounds here at home.

The event will feature the Maimonides Society Roll of Honor which recognizes donors of $1,000 or more to the 2025 Annual Campaign.




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