Jewish National Fund’s (JNF) Sapphire Society hosted a Chanukah Fireside Chat: TaxSmart Ways to Give to Charity and Receive Benefits in Return, led by seasoned financial advisors Aviva Sapers, CEO of Sapers & Wallack, and Richard Noone, Senior Vice President at BNY Wealth Management and a JNF New England Board member. The event was held at the home of Sapers and Judith Sydney, a Sapphire Society member and JNF Executive Board member. The event celebrated the holiday with a candle lighting ceremony, songs, and middle-eastern cuisine.

The Sapphire Society is the women’s major gift division of JNF. Sapphires share a special bond through their commitment to Zionism, and are part of an exclusive group of leaders helping to strengthen the homeland – one community, one project, one family at a time. The Sapphire Society has raised over $20 million in ten years for a wide variety of projects in Israel. Members, through their annual $5,000 contribution, are entitled to wear the coveted Sapphire Society Pin.
