Break out your dancing shoes and join UJA Scarsdale Women for a morning of celebration and impact, as we kick off the 2022 Annual Campaign. Reunite with old friends, meet new ones, and learn some new dance steps from Israeli dance instructor Ruth Goodman, the cofounder and director of the Israeli Dance Institute.
We’ll also hear from Danielle Butin, executive director of the Afya Foundation, a UJA partner. Danielle will share how Afya is responding to the devastation caused both by the earthquake in Haiti and by Hurricane Ida right here in our own backyard.
This event is intended for women who give a gift of $360 or more to UJA’s 2022 Annual Campaign.
UJA policy requires that all event attendees be fully vaccinated against Covid-19. Please bring proof of your Covid-19 vaccination to the event. This event will be held in accordance with applicable laws and regulations, including local, state, and CDC guidelines, to protect the health and welfare of our staff and guests.
Director of the Israeli Dance Institute and the annual Israel Folk Dance Festival, Ruth is on the faculty of 92Y in New York City where she specializes in Israeli folk dance.
