Philanthropic “Wonder Women” Unite for “Hollywood, Antisemitism, and Israel” Event

On June 14, 250 female philanthropists gathered to examine the relationship among Hollywood, antisemitism, and Israel while raising money for charity, at Jewish National Fund-USA’s Women for Israel Luncheon. Chaired by Dr. Marcia Selz, Laura Stein and Jewish National Fund-USA’s Greater Los Angeles Co-President Susie Toczek, the annual event featured Malina Saval, the Features Editor at Variety, and Allison Josephs, the Founder and Executive Director of Jew in the City. The Consul General of Israel to the Pacific Southwest, Dr. Hillel Newman, noted in his address, “Israel at 75. It’s a miracle story. It has been a constant battle; it hasn’t been easy, but despite all the difficulties, Israel not only survived, but Israel thrives.”
