May 6, 2021: The National Council of Jewish Women Greater Miami Section (NCJW MIAMI) will celebrate 100 years of service to the community, raise funds for its programs, and honor Mayor Daniella Levine Cava with the Hannah G. Solomon Award at its Annual Mother’s Day Event, celebrating virtually for a second year
Miami, FL – On Thursday, May 6, at 6:30pm, NCJW MIAMI will celebrate its Centennial year and honor Mayor Daniella Levine Cava with the Hannah G. Solomon Award, with Virtual Event Emcee Johanna Gomez, Host of NBC’s “6 in the Mix”.
The Hannah G. Solomon Award is given by the National Council of Jewish Women (NCJW) to a person who has changed the lives of others through leadership efforts and services on a community level who is known for her/his interest, activity and stand on vital issues with which NCJW is in sympathy.
This person has helped translate these issues into the community; helped to change and expand the role of other people in vital areas of community life; and whose leadership in areas of NCJW concern has motivated others to fight for changes and has resulted in progress and enlightenment in the community. Past local recipients of the Hannah G. Solomon Award include Hon. Elaine Bloom, Hon. Nan Rich, Hon. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Greenberg Traurig, Northern Trust Bank and The Miami Herald.
“At critical moments in history such as this, it is more important than ever for us to work together for community. NCJW exemplifies this spirit through women advocating for the greater good,” said Mayor Daniella Levine Cava. “I couldn’t be prouder to accept this award in the name of women meeting today’s challenges everywhere.”
“In Hannah G Solomon’s own words, our NCJW community is ‘the woman who dares go into the world and do what her convictions demand’ and Mayor Levine Cava, wearing the values of justice on her sleeve, is certainly someone who has always dared to go into the world as her convictions have demanded,” said Co-President Jenni Person. “It is an inspiration to count her among our community and to present her with this award.”
“Congratulations to our first Jewish woman mayor of Miami -Dade County which speaks volumes for all of us. She represents hope and inspiration,” said Co-President Caren Kamlet.
Sponsors include Accessible Home Health Care; Joanne Aronson; Commissioner Sally A. Heyman, District 4; Joanie Glickstein; Judy Lease; Sharlane Packar, Jackie Packar and Alexa Meyers; Myrna Morris; Hon. Nan Rich; and Pardo, Jackson, Gainsburg.
Guests will receive a link twenty-four hours prior to access the Virtual Event, and Swag Bags and “Birthday Nosh” will be delivered to their homes. Guests may also shop for Mother’s Day gifts at the Virtual Boutique until Sunday, May 9. 15% of sales will be donated to NCJW Miami.
