Advocates honored Dec. 15 at Alpert Jewish Family& Children’s Service’s annual brunch
The Alpert Jewish Family & Children’s Service’s “Advocates of the Year Brunch” will take place Dec. 15 at the Four Seasons Resort in Palm Beach. The event will honor Judith Rosenberg and Hope Silverman who have demonstrated a generosity of spirit and supported Alpert Jewish Family & Children’s Service (AJFCS) through their extensive involvement. Their husbands, Jack Rosenberg and Gene Silverman, will serve as co-chairs of the event.
A member of the executive board and board of directors, Judith and her husband Jack founded the international jewelry design firm Judith Jack Inc. in 1978. In honor of their son David, who died at the age of 33, they named the David Rosenberg Playtherapy Room at AJFCS in his memory. In addition, Jack has been a mentor with AJFCS for years and the couple made a major gift resulting in the AJFCS Rosenberg Mentoring4Kids program being named in their honor.
Hope Silverman’s volunteer and philanthropic activities in both the Detroit area and in Palm Beach County have raised funds and positively impacted the lives of hundreds of men, women and children. She is a member of the executive board of AJFCS and serves on its board of directors. She is also a past chair of the agency’s “No Excuse for Abuse” luncheon.
Sponsors for the brunch include: ComericaWealth Management; Noble Properties; Gratus Capital Management; Lesser, Lesser, Landy and Smith PLLC; Thai Jewelry Manufacturer Company; Slaton Risk Management; and Wasser/Jimenez Group.
The funds raised at the event will help fund the programs and services of Alpert Jewish Family & Children’s Service. This social service agency serves Palm Beach County through more than two dozen programs and services. With a staff of more than 100 skilled professionals, the AJFCS team works to strengthen communities and help people during challenging times in their lives.
