On Wednesday, May 24, from 11:30 AM – 2:00 PM we hosted a gala luncheon to mark the close of a year-long celebration of the Jewish Women’s Foundation of New York’s  25th Anniversary and ushered in our next chapter as Elluminate, a new name that better reflects our dynamic and multi-layered approach to affecting more impactful social change by strengthening and elevating women’s leadership.

At this celebration, we honored Debbie Cosgrove, Elluminate’s Immediate Past President. Debbie is a tireless advocate for Jewish ethics and thought, particularly as they relate to gender equity. In her role as educator, activist, and rebbetzin, Debbie has time and time again lit the path for the future of Jewish women.  She is the very embodiment of Elluminate’s mission of empowering Jewish women leaders creating systemic social change.

This event was held both in-person at 583 Park Avenue in NYC as well as virtually over Zoom.
