2017 Outgoing Board Members Honored


As we light our chanukiah this week, I want to pause and give honor to our outgoing board members whose dedication and determination has helped InterfaithFamily to be the beacon in our communities. Each has lit a candle of hope for a community to recognize the value of true welcoming and caring for couples and families who too often were disparaged.

Bill Schwartz is the heart of our Philadelphia program. His commitment to honest feedback, strong fundraising and truth has been a shining example for us all.

Mamie Kanfer Stewart and Ginnie Wise led us as board chairs and saw the vision of what IFF could be. Their determination enabled Ed Case’s passion to become the reality of today.

David Rokoff added wisdom and many witty and pithy words and phrases to our deliberations as a board.

We are grateful for the light they offered to our Jewish community. May we honor their dedication by recommitting ourselves as the ancestors of old.

Happy Chanukah to you and your families.
