Ithaca Area United Jewish Community to launch Campaign on March 31

The Ithaca Area United Jewish Community will hold its Campaign launch party, “Enriching Jewish Community!,” on Sunday, March 31, from 5-7:30 pm, on the main floor of the Cornell University Biotech Building.
“We invite you to dine with us, celebrate our successes and jump-start our 2019 /2020 Campaign!” said an IAUJC representative. “Four of our important programs will be highlighted during the reception. Representatives will share information with attendees on our Holocaust Education and Commemoration efforts; our PJ Library and PJ Our Way programs since 2008; our Jewish Camp and Teen Summer Experience Initiative, which awards financial aid to local families; and our Humanitarian Aid to Israel project, which awards grants to important programs in Southern Israel, through an anonymous contribution.”
The IAUJC will honor and thank longtime supporters Randy and Ron Ehrenberg, and P.A. and Elliot Rubinstein. “These two couples have been on the Ithaca scene for many years and have contributed greatly to the vibrancy of our community,” said an IAUJC representative.
The keynote speaker will be Rabbi Ari Weiss, executive director of Cornell Hillel, who will discuss the potential of emerging Jewish leaders on the college campus. Kira Singer, an Ithaca College Hillel student, will also speak on how the Jewish community on campus has impacted her life.
A reception and dinner, by 104 West! Cornell Kosher Catering, will cost $60 per person or $25 per student. An RSVP and payment in advance is required by Monday, March 18, online at https://iaujc.org/tickets. 
Tribute gifts in honor of the Ehrenbergs and Rubinsteins may also be made online.
Those who need transportation assistance are asked to write to marjorie@twcny.rr.com or call 257-9924. Childcare may also be available depending on interest. Free parking will be available at Hoy Road/Schoellkopf Garage, with handicapped drop-off at the Biotech Building.
