Dear Friends,

The Bronfman Fellowship’s first-ever gala was a resounding success and a meaningful celebration of 36 years of transformation. There was such love, joy, and warmth in the room as we came together to connect with old friends and new. We invite you to read the program from this memorable night. A huge THANK YOU to all who attended!

Our goal was to plan a gala that reflected and incorporated our shared values of community, learning, authenticity, and uplifting one another. At the same time, we understood the complexity involved in taking a bold new step with a prominent fundraising event. After all, The Bronfman Fellowship is premised upon taking risks and innovating. Along each step of the way, we learned and listened to the voices in our community, creating an incredible experience together.

As we mark our double-chai milestone and launch the new strategic vision for the next three years, it felt appropriate and timely to come together and ask for your continued support. We are humbled by the enthusiastic and supportive reaction and response. What a sense of community and possibility!   

There are so many people and organizations that contributed to the gala’s success, and we are profoundly grateful to each of you. Below is a list of the gala’s sponsors. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

The gala is one of the ways in which we are marking our milestone year. Learn more about other opportunities here, including our all-community "Celebrate & Study" event on June 11.

With thanks and gratitude,

Becky Voorwinde

P.S. - We also announced an exciting new way to significantly support the Fellowship: The Chevruta Society
