UJA-Federation of New York’s Northern Westchester Women’s Philanthropy welcomed author Andi Rosenthal at its author event, which was held at a private home in Chappaqua. A resident of Somers, Rosenthal is author of The Bookseller’s Sonnets, the story of a secret diary written by the daughter of a Catholic saint and dating from the time of Henry VIII, which mysteriously shows up in a Holocaust museum in downtown New York City. She also serves as program executive for SYNERGY program, UJA-Federation’s division designed to strengthen synagogues by providing resources and support.
The 40 women in attendance also had the opportunity to learn about the vital work of UJA-Federation. “With nearly 100 agencies in our network, we can harness expertise across a range of disciplines to identify our community’s most pressing challenges and to find best-in-class solutions,” explained Jessica Morgenthal of Armonk. “The bottom line: When we identify a problem, we work with the best agencies to tackle it.”
