The Hon. Samuel G. Fredman Leadership Development Institute (LDI) of the Westchester Jewish Council kicked off its biennial program this past Tuesday evening. This Institute, named after Council founder, the Hon. Samuel G Fredman, was established to bring together top emerging Jewish communal leaders from among the Council member organizations with a goal of developing the next generation of leadership. We salute and welcome the Class of 2019/2020 and wish them (and their sponsoring organizations) great success in their journey!


So many community members came out to support the interfaith prayer vigil organized by the the Westchester County Executive's office, working closely with the Holocaust and Human Rights Education Center.  Speakers included Millie Jasper, Executive Director of Holocaust & Human Rights Education Center, George Latimer, Westchester County Executive, Michael Snow, Director of Jewish Affairs Office of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and more.
