AGM honours volunteers and showcases projects

Phyllis Friedlander receives the Pearl Mandelstam award.

We held our 88th AGM on 22 May via Zoom and it gave us an opportunity to showcase the incredible projects that our branches are involved in.

We had the opportunity to honour our incredible volunteers including Phyllis Friedlander who received the Pearl Mandlestam Shield of Excellence, Chairman’s award for her outstanding and long-serving contribution to our Women’s JCF campaign (launching this month) which she chaired for over 20 years. Phyllis is also the longest-serving member of the Cape Town Executive and is an Honorary Life Vice-President of the Cape Town branch, as well and an Honorary Life Member of National UJW. Myra Goldenbaum became Honorary Vice-Chairman and Alan Hoffman and Su Lubner received service excellence award, while Hilary Osrin received a volunteer appreciation award.

Our outreach projects excelled with the Friend’s Football Club from Noluthu’s Kitchen (a project of our Simcha Group) winning the City of Cape Town’s Ward 93 Sports Tournament and their young women’s team coming second.

Kensington Educare created a vegetable garden with children and teachers getting down and connecting with the soil. Kensington also hosted an incredibly successful Family Fun Day organised by the teachers and PTA.
