On Thursday, October 18 at 7:45 p.m., Daniel J. Sokatch, the Chief Executive Officer of the New Israel Fund (NIF), will lead a discussion titled “Women Should Be Seen and Heard; the Struggle for Women's Rights in Israel Today.” This event will open the annual series of programs presented by Women of Reform Judaism (WRJ) at Westchester Reform Temple.
Daniel J. Sokatch’s role at the NIF places him at the head of the leading organization committed to equality and democracy for all Israelis. Before joining NIF, Sokatch served as the Executive Director of the Jewish Community Federation of San Francisco, the Peninsula, Marin and Sonoma Counties. Prior to his tenure at Federation, he served as the founding Executive Director of the Los Angeles based Progressive Jewish Alliance. In recognition of his leadership, Sokatch has been named to the Forward newspaper’s “Forward 50,” an annual list of the fifty leading Jewish decision-makers and opinion-shapers, in 2002, 2005 and 2008 and 2010.
This event is open to the public at Westchester Reform Temple, located at 255 Mamaroneck Road in Scarsdale, NY.
