National Council of Jewish Women, Greater Detroit Section (NCJW/Greater Detroit) attracted 450 guests, its largest turnout to date, to its annual Women of Vision benefit luncheon Sept. 8 at Congregation Shaarey Zedek in Southfield. All proceeds from the luncheon will benefit NCJW/Greater Detroit community services and programs.
Patrons had the opportunity to meet and hear featured speaker Jenna Bush Hager, a contributing correspondent on NBC’s Today show and an editor-at-large for Southern Living magazine. Hager’s heartwarming stories complemented moving acceptance speeches by Ellie Slovis, the Josephine S. Weiner Award for Community Service recipient, and Woman of Vision Award recipient Alicia Stillman.
Participants enjoyed a delicious lunch, shopping at 30 unique boutiques and a book signing by Hager.
