On Thursday, May 31, our Global Connections department held its annual Spring Gala. Incoming chair Stephanie Sherman welcomed everyone to the event, and she, Federation President Scott Krieger, and Associate Executive Vice President Amir Shacham all spoke in honor of outgoing chair Paula Saginaw. The team produced a wonderful video showing many of the friends Paula has made in Israel and Cherkassy thanking her for all the important work she has done during her three-year term. We also said good-bye and thank you to the five rishonim and three shlichim who are leaving Greater MetroWest this month. Outgoing Tsafona chair Debbie Rover and incoming Tsafona chair Lisa Gutkin presented the traditional paper plate awards to these special young Israeli emissaries, and, as a special surprise, they presented Debbie with her very own Super Woman paper plate award.
