More than 300 women gathered for the Friends of the Israel Defense Forces (FIDF) Michigan Women of Valor Luncheon at Adat Shalom Synagogue in Farmington Hills. The benefit featured a keynote speech from human rights attorney Gadi Ezra and honored Joan Chernoff Epstein. The event, co-chaired by Susie Pappas and Karen Weiss, raised nearly $500,000 to support the FIDF Impact! Scholarship Program, which grants four-year academic scholarships to Israel Defense Forces combat and combat-support soldiers from low socio-economic backgrounds.
