Carla Feinkind

ALCW president Carla Feinkind, a leader for years in social action and justice, will be one of twenty-five recipients of Shalva's The Giving Voice Award on Thursday, March 3rd.

To commemorate its 25th anniversary, SHALVA is honoring twenty five women and men who have worked to facilitate change through their actions and collective voices. These honorees are advocates, volunteers and philanthropists. Their
commitment in speaking out for those who cannot speak for themselves has no geographic or religious boundaries. They are dedicated individuals who work locally, nationally, in the Jewish community and beyond. Through their various forms of contributions, they are improving the quality of life for individuals and communities, as well as generations to come.  We are a better community because of their passion and commitment.

Shalva's 25th Anniversary Dinner will be held the evening of Thursday, March 3rd at the Hyatt Regency Chicago - 151 East Wacker Drive.  For more information, please contact Shalva at (773) 583-4673.
