Boca Raton, FL —  More than 100 of Jewish Federation of Palm Beach County’s most dedicated community leaders and philanthropists gathered for a beautiful evening at the King David Society Dinner on January 14, 2020 at The Colony Hotel in Palm Beach. The elegant evening celebrates members of Federation’s King David Society for their meaningful impact to Federation’s Annual Campaign. The featured speaker was Deborah Lipstadt, one of the world’s leading experts and historians in the fight against antisemitism, and the best-selling author of Antisemitism: Here and NowDenying the Holocaust and The Eichmann Trial.

As the rate of antisemitic incidents continues to rise across Florida, the nation and abroad, standing up to antisemitism continues to be a top priority of Jewish Federation. The organization, through the support of its generous donors, is leading several programs focused on advocacy, security and education.

“Now, more than ever with what we are seeing in the world and in this country, we are proud to see our most dedicated philanthropists stand together, give back and take a stand to ensure our Jewish community remains strong and vibrant for us, for our children, and our grandchildren,” shared Michael Hoffman, President and CEO of Jewish Federation of Palm Beach County.
