Please join us for the 2023 Campaign for Jewish Buffalo Kick Off Event.

After a 2 year break from in-person events, we’re excited to come together and focus on Community, Celebrating and Connections!

This year’s event will feature a special video tribute to Leslie Kramer, z”l, Federation’s immediate Past President and beloved community member who lost her courageous battle with cancer earlier this year.  Video directed and produced by Brenda Feldstein.

We also have guest speaker Bruce Feiler joining us.  Bruce is the author of seven New York Times bestsellers, presenter of two prime-time series on PBS, New York Times columnist, and host of two TED Talks.  Bruce is one of the country’s preeminent thinkers, writers, and speakers about the role of spirituality in contemporary life.

Dinner and drink stations will be available on the 2nd floor beginning at 5:30 pm.  Dine and schmooze with friends outside the ballroom or at your assigned table.  Everyone will be seated for dessert and the form program at 7 pm.
