Lion Of Judah Luncheon
Honors Top Philanthropists
WOLOWITZ, a past chair
of Long Island Womenís Philanthropy of the UJA-Federation of New
York, was getting a pedicure when her cellphone rang.
Martine Fleishman, president of
Womenís Philanthropy, was calling to inform that Carol had been
chosen to receive the 2010 Kipnis-Wilson/Friedland Award at the
Lion of Judah fall luncheon at the Pierre Hotel in Manhattan.
"I was humbled," Carol recalled at the
luncheon. "But as Golda Meir said, donít be so humble ó youíre
not that great."
The Spirit of Peggy Award went to
Ruth Suzman, a chair of UJA-Federationís 2011 Westchester
annual campaign. Pat Hall, daughter of the late Peggy Tishman, for whom the award is named, made the presentation.
More than 16,000 women across the
country ó each contributing a minimum of $10,000 ó participate
in the Lion of Judah program in philanthropic fundraising.
The keynote speaker, Dan Senor, an
adjunct senior fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations,
predicted that the United States wonít take out Iranís nuclear
"Israel will," Senor asserted.
"It will be messier than if the
Americans did. Israel doesnít have the resources like the U.S.
has. That means America will have to step in and clean it up."
